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.

Loved the ride up to @barkervillebc I'm a sucker for historic towns. #goldrushtrail #explorebc so far we've made our way up #seatoskyhighway #duffylakeroad #route97 #cariboohighway next up @route16_ca #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x is rocking it.
Howe Sound view from the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Did my first ride of the Sea-to-Sky highway today. So much fun. Lots of corners but also lots of space since the hwy expansion in 2010. I remember driving this back in the 90's when it was single lanes. So much safer now. Did an amazing morning yoga class at the top. Highly recommend trying it! Classes start at 9:45 every weekday morning (taught by @northyoga_ ). Today's class was Yang to Yin... a perfect mix of flow and deep stretches for all levels #yoga #explorebc #seatoskyhighway #seatoskygondola #roadtrip #girlsthatride #moto #view #nature #yogainnature #yogaview #motorcycle
Found this lovely oasis on my ride back from #harrisonhotsprings #explorebc #mission #girlsthatride #waterfall #cascadefalls #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #mototrip #scenic7 #highway7
Uluwatu is gorgeous. Ancient temple that sits on a cliff. Protected by some cranky monkeys. My driver overcharged me on the way there. I sat down for a second in the parking lot to figure it out and this huge monkey comes out of nowhere, snatches my phone and hisses at me. His teeth were huge, keep my $1000 iphone. Someone came and helped by feeding the monkey so he'd drop my phone. I was told they are particularly nasty in the morning because they haven't eaten yet. Me too monkey. Me too. . But the view 🌊 . . #bali #baliindonesia #uluwatu #monkey #uluwatutemple #monkeyfight #view #indonesia
Hanging out in Nusa Dua for a few days. The Ritz is gorgeous. Beautiful grounds, right on a white sand beach overlooking the Indian Ocean. . . . #bali #baliindonesia #nusadua #beach #resort #theritz
Love exploring all the funky cafes in Bali. I was worried that with a nut 🥜 allergy in Indonesia my food options would be limited. Not at all. Flip through the slideshow for some of my favourite dishes so far. . . . #food #bali #indonesia #ubud #seminyak #canggu #peanutallergy #balifood the last pic is of my breakfast at #anggahomestay . . Thanks @josieinbc and @localwanderer for the tips!
