Finally had my follow-up in relationship to my eyelid infection. It was a straightforward appointment. I felt a little silly going, actually. Monday and Tuesday my right eye was feeling real dry and bad like it was before it started to get inflamed and enormous. I didn’t want a repeat of last time so I called Tuesday afternoon to try and get my appointment moved up to Wednesday, but the doctor I wanted to see only works part time.
I slept in a little since my appointment wasn’t until 8:30, took Amelia with me, and was told that everything is A-Ok. My eye is most likely dry due to the seasons changing, but also because I’ve been washing it a bit more consistently. My doctor recommended I only wash it about once a day, and to also start taking fish oil pills. My mom has taken fish oil pills for probably over a decade now so I guess I’ll be joining her club.
Beyond that the day sailed by. Since Amelia woke up early she gave me no grief during lunch or nap time. Don’t tell my boss but I actually took a little nap during the day because I was literally falling asleep at my desk. I work from home so it’s not like he could stop me, but in the end I don’t even feel all that comfortable with it. It was just the difference between fighting sleep and getting nothing done, or embracing the exhaustion for just a moment to set a better precedent.
I am not much of a nap person. It’s for the same reason I don’t go to sleep all that early: fear of missing out. Which is silly because I work from home and barely leave due to the pandemic, so it’s not as if I’m missing out on much. It realistically just translates into me wanting to be able to squeeze one more round of video games in. All-in-all I feel like I have a grip on things again. It won’t be permanent but I will take the consistency where I can and do my best to offer it back to the ones I care about.
Love you mom, dad, sis, Amelia, Marie, kitty
