I just blogged about this at my other blog. So I’m just cutting and pasting. Then I’m going to sleep and hope this clears up.


I blogged a bit at the oboe site, but I can no longer blog. Sigh.

My eyes can’t focus on anything. I wonder if this is just a part of the migraine. I hope so. I’d hate to have my vision go bonkers. I can’t exactly be an oboist with no vision.


  1. Haven’t you anything better for migraines than advil?
    Imitrex? Maxalt?
    Even midrin or fioricet would be better than advil.
    And there’s always vicodin.
    We can’t have blind, headachey oboists, It’s hard enough without throwing in additional challenges.
    get well soon!
    (This is your free medical advice in return for all of your free oboe advice)

  2. I wish I could remember what my doctor had prescribed when I complained about these a few years back. Whatever it was — something I was to take once per hour — didn’t work for me, so I gave up. (Maybe one of those second two?) I’m afraid I feel as if I’m bothering my doctor when I tell her these things. Long story … but when I was anemic it took eons to really figure that out. I guess I’ll make a new appointment and see if she can give me something that works. I simply can’t play when I get one of these. Heck, I can barely breathe!

    Thanks for your kind words and assistance. I REALLY appreciate it. Greatly! 🙂
