Sometimes around 11:30pm last night, I was awakened by a severe thunderstorm outside. I also had pain from:

1. The chiari malformation in the back of my head.

2. Nausea from distal cathether in stomach.

3.  Pain behind both eyes 

4. Pain from the shunt valve and distal catheter at the top of my head. 

It's been like four hours and the pain has been reduced, still lingering in the background. I'm doing this new thing where I don't take pain medication unless I really really need to.  

Not sure if I'll do nintendo therapy today, as I have pain behind my eyes.  It may be a reading and listening to movie soundtracks type of day.  Music from films like Suzume and Spider Man are in my head today.
