Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Don’t migraine and drive

I started to get a migraine after I taught my North Van yoga class this morning. Anyone who’s ever had a migraine knows that when you get the blurred vision at the start of it, all you want to do is get home to bed and turn out all the lights and somehow destroy the sun. So against my better judgement I drove home. It was all good until I tried to merge onto the Lions gate bridge and couldn’t tell which lanes were open to Southbound traffic. My migraine vision saw 3 red X’s and 3 green x’s… but I know there are only three lanes… so I just chose one and hoped for the best. It all worked out, but I wouldn’t recomend driving with migraine… next time I’ll wait till the vision returns.

    Ouch Tammy, so sorry to hear you suffer from migraines as well. I guess I’m lucky that I’ve never had to deal with auras. I couldn’t imagine how scary the blurry vision might be or the light shows I hear many migraineurs with aura describe.I’m glad to hear you made it home safely =) I do have the typical sensitivities to light so, when I was working full-time, there were times I’d drive home in the evening wearing sunglasses. Not very safe, and I don’t recommend it, but there are times when the pain is so bad you can’t think of anything except getting home and crawling into bed.

    I used to drive with migraines. Ditto on it not being a good idea. I rear-ended the car in front of me one time. I just couldn’t see it. Don’t do it again. Tsk tsk.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
