so THAT's the problem

I should have known that there was something going on other than my bad mood/impatience/whiny attitude.
This Tuesday AGAIN I saw and felt a weird sensation.. I saw what I describe as water color rainbow waves.(like oil and water mixed with a rainbow).
 It started last Tuesday at rehearsal. I saw these rainbow waves.  It made my vision so I couldn't even see the script.. but I kept breathing and trying to relax and it went away in about 10 minutes and I was fine.  I just though I had stood up too long, or was actually breathing correctly and had taken in too much oxygen. 
Then this Tuesday during lunch... it started again and I just didn't understand what was causing it...so of course I called the Dr.,------  DR LAUREN and she said to get an appointment asap.
I actually got one the same day..come to find out it is an optical migraine.    And the Dr. kept mentioning all these other bad words:  cataracts, detached retina, beta blockers, fishers, eyesight,
and all these really bad things can cause it, or be the reason behind it, or result from it.
wait how did that get here? now I'm hallucinating????

Today I am seeing a specialist and hopefully he can look deep into my eyes and tell me what the heck is going on!

Wouldn't it be awesome if Kevin Costner could look deep into your eyes and tell you it's nothing, here's a little pill and I'll call you in the morning?

At least you're going to a specialist without having to wait around. I suspect he will be able to give you some answers.

That must be a pretty scary experience! Hope they figure it out soon. Today would be good.

Keep us posted okay. I'm saying a prayer for you (and the doctor) right now.

Good luck! Hopefully you just need some drops or something else easy. That's always the wish!

And can Kevin Costner get any better looking!?! Sheesh! He's totally got that rugged, slightly disheveled, yesterday's-shave look totally down! Yummy! Mmmmmmm!
