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.
So glad your eye is better! You’re right, we don’t realize how dependent we’ve become on our techie tools until we can’t use them for a bit.
Thank you! It was challenging to say the least.
Oh, ouch! I’m glad you’re feeling better now. It’s amazing how much something small like that can hurt.
Thank you! I can’t believe I didn’t even mention not writing. Eye pain messes with the head too.
For me, it’s the neck. If my neck is screwed up I can’t get anything done! Glad your eye is better.
Thanks! I was pretty scared at the idea of the doctor touching my eye to clean it but those numbing drops made it easy. Fear really was the worst part.
Hope your neck stays stress-free!
