Got this thing happening to me, all I can call it is an aura, but not sure what to do about it...



Got right this minute,

An aura is all I can call it,

Started out small, then expanded,

Pretty little triangles in a row, surrounded,

By my whole head and eyes, it is weird, so unusual,

Do I get them, especially after just awakening…


Cannot focus on them directly,

They just seem to move away from my sight,

Is this the flashback that they once said would come from acid use?

Or is it a problem with my sight, or is it the light,

From my computer making me feel a bit in the head, light?


Usually when I get these, but it has been over a year since the last,

I take some Tylenol and lay down, expecting the worst of a blast,

A blast of headache, closer to a migraine, closer than I did ever get,

But as it passes this time, the headache seems not to materialize,

I took some Tylenol, at its onset, maybe that worked, telling herein no lies…


But it is still scary, what with all the other problems of late,

Seems that I may be heading for my big reward early, if that is my fate,

Not that I wish too, nor do I want to leave, now that I have a really great mate,

I would like to hang around awhile, see the world, do some fishin’, use some bait…

Eileen's Right ED, it's a migrane, the Retina, or....your Bloodsugar dropping low. I had one a few nights ago, acutally i woke up around 4 ish in the morn, and got an attack of Hypoglycemia, then the aura started. A quick OJ and a snack and it disappeared! They are freaky, and it's a good idea to get to the bottom of yours NOW. Hey I had one that got so big, it looked like a gateway LOL.
Hugs Ch'erie

It is not checkOUT time for you, Ed.. You still have millions of words to use up and they multiply, so you ain't goin' anywhere, 'cept the beach or wherever you wish to go. (smile) I don't know what your triangles mean but if you've had these on and off for a long time, I'd say maybe it's your inner rainbows, scrambling to get out! You, of course, my dearest, are the POT OF GOLD! Have a great 4th, Ed, and smooch Rufuz for me. I'm off to the great outdoors! Wheeeeeeee katy xox.

Ed, you should be very careful. It could be migraine, but it could also be a tear in the retina, and if that happens and it gets worse, your in trouble. So why not see a optometrist? Take care...

Ed I get those too...and the moment I see those sparkling objects I take some headache tablets and the migraine don't come or is not so painful...I think th PC could be part of it....but the doctor said to me it was not the PC...Yipeeee!!

I am getting those if I don't get time to drink coffee ... I think it has something to do with don,t let this worry you tooo much okay!! Take a nice strong cuppa and you will feel better soon!!

Sounds like this could be your blood pressure kicking up, Ed. You need to relax a little, my friend. Head over to your Waldon's Pond with Rufuz, take in Nature, and chill. I bet you feel better soon.
