About two weeks ago I woke up with pain in my eye, like an eyelash was turned in. I couldn’t find anything but rinsed it with cool water and used eye drops during the day. It seemed almost okay—except the next morning I woke up at 5:30 am with the same horrible pain.
A few trips to the eye doctor and I was on the way to healing. It’s amazing what a speck of dirt can do. Everything focused on it. To get as comfortable as possible, that meant no reading, no Internet, and no TV until I felt better.
No. Reading. I’m amazed I survived. (Being hearing impaired makes audiobooks more work than anything else.)
So things are now a lot better—and honestly? Being away from my computer made for some stress-free days. I hadn’t realized how plugged in I was until I had to stop.
But don’t ever take my books away.
