Thankyou so much for sympathy and kind words- the doctor has me off work for at least 3 days, my eye has not improved at all. the pain is distorting my ability to see, the topical ointment in my eye is blurring my vision. with everything i have been through over the years medically, i am used to pain. however, this has taken pain to a whole new level. the entire top left side of my head is pounding, aching, hurting, from my eye down to my ear, teeth/jaw and behind my eye, all on the left. i cant sleep on my left side, it just increases the pressure in my face which in turn increases the pain. and because of the severity of the pain, i cant sleep. my nose started running the moment my eye flared up- apparently when tear ducts are blocked, the overflow goes out your nose. ive been through half a box of tissues and have a rudolph the red nosed reindeer nose. the whole eye flare has given me a 'behind the eye' migraine, like someone is hammering away with a chisel.
as you can imagine, the whole level of pain and discomfort is agitating and distressing me, especially as i have never experienced anything like this. im sensitive to light, im edgy, unable to sleep. i just finished my lesson plans for the next 2 days and emailed them to the school so my kids will have appropriate work to go on with.
Im so very sorry for whining, i realise in the scheme of things in this world that a gammy eye isnt epic- but right now its stopping me from being even remotely comfortable or calm and restful. im sick and tired of being sick and tired. i try so hard to do the right thing and i keep getting knocked on my butt. sorry for any typos- am still typing with one eye only.
thankyou, awesome HW family. love, peace and blessings
