..or I breakayouface

Yesterday after lunch, I started getting a big headache. My forehead felt like it was popping out, my chest got all fluttery, my legs were all mushy and numb, and my whole head started tingling. Then the side of my face that didn't get hit started hurting in the same places: the place where the bruise is on the left side started throbbing on the right side; my right eye started hurting. I told my boss I had to leave, called Mickey and headed to the hospital.

After some waiting I was seen by a Triage nurse, taken into the emergency room and seen by a doctor. He touched the black and red spots on my face and judging by my wince, decided to get me a CAT scan of my head and face.

Long story short, my cheekbone is broken.
