It was my favorite time of the year, fall, which in the US meant it was football season. The air was crisp, the sky was filled with sunshine. A classic fall day in mid-November 2018. My husband and I decided to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary along with my in-laws at a Penn State football game. While at the game, I noticed the scoreboard was difficult to read. Naturally, I thought I was getting older and maybe my astigmatism was getting worse so it may be time to go get glasses. After the game, we went to visit my sister who lived nearby and that is when I started to feel like something was wrong. I thought I may be coming down with an illness because of how suddenly it came on. On the car ride home, I suffered from the worst headache I have ever experienced in my life—it felt as though an ice pick was being driven through my eye to the back of my head. I fell asleep in the car and when we got home I went straight to bed. The next morning I decided to go to the gym. While I was there, I noticed the lights seemed funny and my phone screen seemed to be going in and out of focus. Again, I chalked it up to being old (I was 31 at the time, so not that old). I got home and started schoolwork for the Masters degree I was working on and again the screen went blurry. This time lasting longer than before. I decided to call my aunt, who is a Nurse Practitioner and also a migraine sufferer to ask if what I was experiencing was a migraine. She told me to immediately go to the emergency room and I heeded her warning.
