That is short for what I have. Blepharitis. When your eye feels like it has something in it, it is sore, scratchy, itchy and will drive you half nuts. It is an inflamation of the eyelids, often the tiny oil glands near your eyelashes become plugged. People with psoriasis often have problems…well guess who has psoriasis.
I finally called the eye clinic and insisted I have the old eye Doctor and not the new one fresh out of school. I explained my symptoms and told him that he has seen many more eye balls than the new eye Doctor and he just laughed. I am to discontinue the antibiotic drops…and have special wipes to cleanse my eyes twice a day…and they are already better. I also got my year old reading glasses straightened around so maybe I can see the computer with them. I have a pair of prescription reading glasses from 2010 that work great…another pair from 2012 but the new ones from 2017 were a complete failure. ( One of the gals at the Vision Ordering Area told me to wear them all the time and my eyes would get used to them??? I said “They are just reading glasses should I wear them even if I cannot see?” She was obviously a idiot…I finally said very sweetly alrighty then I will talk to the Dr.)
It has been a week and it is not over yet.
We attended the visitation/wake for our long time friend (since 1975) who died. Jim was 71 years old. We enjoyed the slide show and the rock n roll music at the visitation. We got to hug family members and give them our sympathy. We attended the visitation instead of the funeral…during the visitation you can move around and away from people who are coughing and avoid those dipped in perfume/aftershave. I shared a story with Jim’s son Tori. When Tori was about two years old we adults (Jim, Lynne, Far Guy and me) were playing cards…Tori was being a turd acting up, he was being a real pill…Jim went to swat him on the bottom and our very protective little Scottie Mutt named Snuffer bit Jim. Jim had a look of amazement on his face……he didn’t know if he should be mad at the dog or praise her. Jim was the only guy we ever knew who used WD40 on his fish hooks…he said it made the fish bite…we were never convinced. He was “a classic.”
I mowed the lawn yesterday, dead headed and pinched back some of my flowers and sprayed poison ivy and thistle and worked on leveling the dirt in the driveway. I was busy all day long.
