odd thing about this dry eye business - at least for me (and i don't have it very badly) is that when life gets uncomfortably Interesting, i forget about my eyes, and they seem to get better. and by interesting, i mean one damn crisis after another
although, that said, if i don't put the drops in at night, i wake up with a very sore eye, cursing myself.
oh well. off now to deal with... everything else!
ok - so today i'm going to have a moan.
yesterday evening i set up my new humidifier - which involved moving all the bedroom around to get it in a place where the steam could safely be directed. i was very pleased with the machine - very quiet in operation, put out a gentle zephyr of steam, and is good to look at - with its clear blue container for the water. i might even get some plastic goldfish for it!
so, when i went to bed, i put the humidifier on, and
i slept for hours last night, with only one application of Celluvisc before going to bed - wonderful!
woke at half past five and did another half-vial, but i feel very encouraged by this.
less is more, yeah!
are clear pools.
i look upwards
to their surface:
where the world dances
for my pleasure.
it's been raining a lot these last few days, here in the green, soft West Country. my eyes love it; but having been flooded last winter, i retain an edge of nervousness, despite being better prepared than we were then. there's no doubt, though, that the vegetation is revelling in all this moistness and warmth! everything growing hugely, spilling over into the 'cultivated' parts of the garden - and somehow i can imagine how, when we humans have long since quit the planet, the plants will grow
one thing that worries me about DES - not a fear worry but a nagging, guilty worry - is all the STUFF that gets used, just to cope. the paper tissues, the cotton wool pads, cotton wool buds, plastic throwaway vials, and so on.
well, i've found one way of re-using some of that STUFF - a second-use for the tissues and cotton wool pads, at least - which only get used for hot water compresses and mopping up tears.
i wring out the cotton wool pads, and leave them to dry.
