My Migraine Headache — PowerPoint Style
For you PowerPoint haters, this is not another gripe against mammoth Microsoft and the headache its presentation tool, PowerPoint, causes. No this is quite the contrary. This is an example of how I was able to make the pain “visible” to others using PowerPoint and its built in tools.
Yesterday, I felt a migraine coming on. Well, I didn’t feel it — I saw it. Many people who get migraines experience a visual disturbance (called and aura), before the onset of the pain. Anyway, as the disturbance got more and more intense, I was stunned that my mind remained on my craft. Even as I shook in fear of the impending pain, I thought to myself, “hmmm, I bet I could recreate that aura in PowerPoint.”
And I did.
I get nauseous just looking at this. Click the link to view the animated PowerPoint slide (be sure to view in Slide Show View). Migraine
