Sorry to hear about this. Have you considered therapy?
As for me.. I'm sick as fuck. Head is pounding. Anyone ever fly with a cold/flu/sinus infection? The cabin air pressure difference (only when you're descending, strangely) causes IMMENSE pain in your sinuses. On a scale of 0-10, with 10 being shot in the stomach or being burned alive, this pain was at least a 6, if not a 7. I mean, it was fucking debilitating.
It felt like someone was drilling a pick axe into my forehead and twisting and churning it around.
You could also feel the pressure buildup inside 'drift' around.. so it started around my nose/forehead area, and then it traveled to my right ear. Fucking felt like my ear drum was going to explode.
I immediately stopped doing work and just shed a couple tears from all the pain. It was terrible. Miserable. Ugh.
Apparently it's called aerosinusitis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerosinusitis
On the bright side, my manager said I could come in at noon tomorrow, so yay!
Edit: and I'm getting decimated by the stock market.. Oh JOY!
