Today was slightly better. I hid behind a wall I built with cardboard and an old curtain I brought in from home.
It's definitely me. No one else is having this problem.
I did find out that there are different light bulbs in my new area than in the area where I was sitting before, which makes me feel a little less insane.
I am changing seats tomorrow, and they're going to see if it's possible to replace the lights in the one light that is right above my seat. I'm thinking of wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses too.
But I feel better today. At least, I don't think I might have a migraine. I just feel slightly light-headed. No real headache, though.
But I did go out for a couple hours for my 'welcome to the department' lunch. So I had a big break in the middle of the day. And after coming back and working for a while, I was semi-hallucinating. It was like seeing 'trails' or weird light flickering while looking at my computer screen.
I hope moving my seat helps.
