New Blog Look - Calming
Are you wondering about the new blog look? Are you thinking it's strange I changed it again -- that I even took off the header I loved? Let me tell you why.
Last night, I wrote about hypervigilance and the aggravation of too much light and noise coming into the brain of ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients. I didn't say that this also happens to people who have Fibromyalgia. I have been diagnosed with both; and for the first time ever, it hurt my head to look at those bright colors and polka dots. It was just too weird. I love bright colors and quiet blues. I enjoy the spectrum of colors, but my head felt like it was getting tighter and tighter as I saw the polka dots and the bright orange and pink. I tried quieting it down, widening the sidebars and page, but nothing worked.
Do you notice colors affect you? Are some colors overstimulating at times? I would love to hear what you think.
