Oh how I feel for you. One thing I found helpful is to put in some thicker drops (Dwelle or one of the gel type) and have a long shower. I get longer lasting comfort with that and the drops sting less. I see you are in a very dry climate. Panoptx or WileyX or similar eye protection with a gasket seal would be a good investment - then you should need less drops. I have WileyX sunglasses with light sensitive lenses and a gasket and they look just like sunglasses and would be fine without the gasket when your eyes feel better.
Here are some hugs from New Zealand (((((((((((Mary))))))))))))))))).
I do hope you get some relief very soon. Do contact Rebecca.
Things will get better - I used to feel there was no hope but you will get more comfort soon.
Take care and God bless
When the going gets tough - the tough get going!
