I guess I will file today’s post under the “Tip of the Week” Section, as it has been awhile since I shared a tip with my readers. Have you ever had an ocular migraine? Maybe you have experienced this strange and annoying phenomenon, but just didn’t know what the heck it was. I meant to do a post updating you all on the things I wanted to share about where I am going in 2016, but had to take a little detour for self care due to having an ocular migraine again last night. Let me tell you, they are not fun. Like with most annoying things I have experienced though, I find a way to cope.
