Good Thing I Don't Like Pea Soup
So I've now had a monster headache for 504 hours. 21 fun-filled days. I have seen three separate doctors on four occasions, have taken every over the counter medication for pain available, prescription anti-biotics, decongestants, two different migraine medications, all to no avail. As a last resort, I had the most recent doctor prescribe Ambien so I could get some damn sleep, if nothing else. Tonight I took it at a respectable 10:30 so I could make it to class on time tomorrow for my mid-term critique. This crap is supposed to knock me out in 15-30 minutes. I was lying in the dark just now, an hour and a half after taking it, and looked at the ceiling. I thought I saw a tiny, green light, flickering a little, as if there were a lightening bug dying in my light fixture. I stared at it a little more, and it got a little stronger, then I noticed a tiny red light about 8 inches away from the green one, and another tiny red light about 8 inches from that. An equilateral triangle of led's on my ceiling? I flipped on La Tour Eiffel...no lights on the ceiling.
Now, since I know full well I have a sleeping pill in my system, and I am most definitely not asleep, I suppose I could say I actually am taking crazy pills, but I am wholly disconcerted by lights that aren't really there. Everything else seems totally normal, so I'm either hallucinating, or under surveillance by my light fixture. And since I know what a hallucination looks like, I'm going with the latter.
I am not enjoying this one bit. And entirely afraid to turn out the light.
