Ever hear of a Self-Resolving Visual Disturbance as a side effect to Saphenous Vein Ablation? Bossy either.
But apparently there is a 5-8% chance of this occurring, which translates to
a 100% chance it will happen to Varicose Barbie. And Varicose Barbie is not happy. Because when Varicose Barbie tries to look out of her eyes, this is what she sees:
It’s back to bed for you, Varicose Barbie. That’s OK, it’s not as if her daughter is in the middle of a snow day and they have all kinds of fun plans. Oh, wait.

Lay off the drugs Bossy !
RuthWells saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 12:20 pm
Oh honey. Hang in!
Mark saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 12:51 pm
Just think you will be all ready for spring when it arrives, You found the picture of the snow on the branch cold. Funny how the snow never reached us in my part of Canada.
Stay with it all will be right in your world soon.
heidi saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 12:53 pm
ugh you’re giving me a migraine, just reading about it.
Coffee, stat. Drugs, stat. Bed, stat.
Sheila saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 1:03 pm
Bundeswehr! I haven’t seen one of those since I dated surly punk rock boys 15 years ago. It looks much better on you! Did it cost $2 at the Army-Navy store? I think that’s why all the fake-poor and fake-dirty kids used to wear them.
Cactus Petunia saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 1:56 pm
Oy! The flashing rainbow question mark looks just like the visual stuff I get right before a migraine comes on. Definitely, back to bed!
p.j. saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 2:32 pm
I’m with Cactus Petunia.
I take 2 extra-strength (tylenol) acetaminopen and 2 pseudophedrine (sudafed) to stop my migraine-precursor “visual aura” in its tracks. Just saying what works for me. Not to be construed as legal or medical advice.
Good luck. p.j.

Self-Resolving? Sounds like that calls for some Self-Medicating.
linlah saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 2:45 pm
I must have that too because I thought there was a baby on the tray on the table.
WebSavvyMom saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 2:59 pm
–>Poor BOSSY, I mean Barbie – – meanwhile, I see Stella giving Baby David the stink eye.
ZDub saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 4:22 pm
Barbie needs mo drugs.
Amy @ The Bitchin' Wives Club saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 5:06 pm
Oh, that really stinks! I hope it “self-resolves” itself away immediately! I’ve gotten a similar thing before one of my migraines and it is seriously unnerving to not be able to see straight.
meleah rebeccah saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 5:08 pm
Yikes. Feel better! or rather SEE better soon.
APeetsMom saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 5:34 pm
Bossy I have had 3 of these in past 5 months! SO ANNOYING! Ending with a headache (no migraine, thankfully)….here is what they are:
foolery saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 5:48 pm
I’m thinking the “self-resolving” thing is a Cover Yer Ass medical term. Call Wine-One-One.
David saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 5:49 pm
I’ve had those for YEARS! The are annoying as hell but don’t really amount to anything. They usually show up when I am stressed.
Cassie Sue saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 5:55 pm
Not even kidding, I get those everytime I have a migraine. THEY SUCK! I read it means you have a higher chance of a stroke later in life… also sucky… but the good news is the vision question mark thing goes away. Usually it’s a good excuse to take a nap.
Philly saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 6:13 pm
I just wondering why you have a tank top on in the dead of winter.
Birdbrain saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 6:26 pm
Oh I wonder if that’s like an optical migraine. Had one of those a few months back, no headache but the optical center of my brain was having a doozy. Wherever I looked, something was missing in the picture, like half a woman’s mouth in the magazine picture I was looking at. Weird, thought uh-oh having a stroke!
Betsy saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 7:14 pm
Aww, Bossy, you’re just having an ophthalmic migraine…no danger and mine just decided one day to go away and not come back.
Bush Babe (of Granite Glen) saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 7:41 pm
Is it hard to doctor things in photoshop with one of these opti headachey things?
Feel better soon!
GrandeMocha saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 8:27 pm
Ruth saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 11:11 pm
Bossy has a migrane? I thought she was having a vein thrombosus of somthing. :::Scratching head:::: huh? huh? what am I missing? Earth to Ruth
Feel better SOON Bossy !
chook saysFebruary 10, 2010 at 11:38 pm
Bundeswehr is everywhere!
clickmom saysFebruary 11, 2010 at 12:15 am
Just stay away from Dr. Google. My fingers re crossed for your speedy recovery.
Tootsie Farklepants saysFebruary 11, 2010 at 2:15 am
Of all the visual disturbances the self-resolving are the best kind. Get well soon, Bossy.
Sewmouse saysFebruary 11, 2010 at 10:52 am
Chiming in with the other migraine sufferers – I usually hit 4 extra strength tylenol and then slam down a FULL SUGAR pepsi. Not diet. Gotta have the sugar.
Lay down in dark room with eyes closed and relax relax relax…. and it goes away without the headache. FOR ME. This is not saying it will for anyone else.
Hate those eye things, tho. Hate hate hate. Get Well Soon.
The Subtle Rudder saysFebruary 11, 2010 at 11:50 am
I’d say I’m sorry for your suffering but all I can think is I’M JELLUS OF BOSSY’S ARMS. Lookit that TONE!
Deborah saysFebruary 11, 2010 at 10:26 pm
That sketch is exactly what it looks like when I’ve had this before, maybe 3 or 4 times in my life before (now aged 59). The first time I had it was about 10 years ago after eating a thanksgiving meal, then went to Blockbuster video trying to find a movie to watch that evening. I realized I couldn’t read the dvd boxes and had this flashing question mark in my field of vision. It happened once again on vacation in Taos NM. I thought it might be connected to the change in elevation and once it happened at work when I was on the phone with a creepy client who said something that made me extremely mad. It hasn’t happened since then. This post just clears up for me what it was.
pkzcass saysFebruary 12, 2010 at 12:43 pm
So is that also considered a floater? Cause if so, don’t expect it to clear up anytime soon. I have one of those question mark thingys but it’s just black. And I’ve had it for OVER A YEAR.
I hope yours clears up quick.
TheWordWire saysFebruary 13, 2010 at 9:29 pm
So does this mean Varicose Barbie’s gaydar is on the fritz, perpetually wondering but never sure? Mercy. Hope she gets some sleep and feels better soon.
chuck saysFebruary 14, 2010 at 10:46 pm
Does Bossy borrow her daughter’s clothes and jewelry often?
Sparx saysFebruary 16, 2010 at 7:43 pm
Oh man, that’s hateful, hope it didn’t end in an horrific migraine. But Boss, there is NOTHING to you… honestly, can I come over and fatten you up maybe a little?
Sorry for all the vein issues though, hope things come right for you soon x
AmberStar saysFebruary 21, 2010 at 11:21 pm
It looks to me like Bossy’s eye is going all WTF and is shutting down for a while. I gotta tell ya, if I saw something like that in my eye I’d be at my opthalmologists office clawing on the door. I have floaters…and have had them since I was a child….but something like that ? and the weird 7 on the link up above…no no no!
Hurry and get well…I dun like this.
