While I am insanely grateful for this, I'm now incredibly curious as to what happened? Did someone at IT get overly ambitious? Was it a shot across the bow to let Law Firm slackers know they were being watched? Did one of the BIG BOSSES throw a hissy fit when they couldn't access something wanted and told IT to stuff it? I just checked and all the proxy sites one could try using to bypass Websense are still blocked.
Anyway, thanks so much to every one who reached out to me with advise and support. I really love you guys and it would have been horrible to feel like I was cut off from you for the balance of my work-day.
Went to sleep last night with a vaguely brewing tension headache and eye fatigue and woke up at 3:00AM in excruciating agony with one of those "icepick through the head" throbbing headaches, which went from my lift cheek up through my nasal area and focused the sharp pain on my left temple. I honestly thought I might have to go to the emergency room. I took an aspirin and then woke up hubby who was very nice about it and gave me something else which I can't remember right now, and also brought me an ice pack. Unfortunately he didn't have any of the "good stuff" left over from the leg injury. It took about an hour for me to get comfortable enough to sleep and it was honestly the ice pack that I think did the most good. It was still bad at about 5AM, but when I woke up at 8AM I felt fine.
Since I have some time off next week, and have to get a gyno exam to get my pills refilled anyway, I'll make an appointment and mention this little incident. Probably also not a bad time for a tooth cleaning and check up.
Here are my theories:
