Ok, I just moved from my office to the basement desk that’s just inside the playroom. There is some fluorescent lights overhead, like not the CFL’s I can deal with those, but the glaring tube office lights.
After about an hour at my desk I started getting a headache. I started feeling dizzy and tired. I had to go upstairs and crash for an hour or else I couldn’t function anymore.
Funny thing, this is exactly how I always felt in high school. I turned off the lights, lowered my monitor brightness and I’m doing just fine now, with just a residual headache from earlier.
Looks like I get all triggered health wise by fluorescent lights. So:
Artificial scents cause my sinuses and lungs to seize up.
Fluorescent lights cause my head to feel like it’s going to explode at any moment. Not monitor lights, not CFL’s, not LED’s just those gods awful tube lights that are common in most offices.
My back hurts like a mofo because of arthritis.
I also need something to put my feet up on. Heh. I prefer dim lighting, who would have thought.
Yeah I also have a hard time driving at night, especially in the rain. I do have Crizal coating on my glasses and that helps a ton, but not enough to keep me from damn near being blinded by the headlights of oncoming traffic.
Thanks for reading my ramble..or not. Ugh…slowly deteriorating here.
