You thought Roberta was tough? Think again...

So we're half way through placement. I have written two pieces that have been published on the website and a feature, which I just need to send off to the relevant person. I know more about equestrian law than can ever possibly be useful to me. I have also broken a personal record.

For the past three days, I have been in bed with a horrendous migraine. It all started with that feature...

Essentially, it was savaged by my placement supervisor. Within an hour, my stress had brought on a very strong headache. The kind that laughs in the face of painkillers. Even prescription painkillers. When I woke up the next morning, it was still there. Fortunately, they gave me the day off. And the next day too when I was still felt like my head was being microwaved and pressure cooked all at once. I even got neck pain and cyanosis, which was fun. At one point I was pretty much convinced that I had either a) a brain tumour or b) a parasitic worm in my skull.

So yeah, that was fun. On the plus side, it gave me chance to write my obit. On the down side, I'm now terrified that Stan Lee is going to drop dead any minute...
