I was listening to CBC radio the DNTO. The host Sook-Yin Lee today was talking about pervasive down turn. I listen to the some of the stories that people narrowed during the program and realized one thing that many of them were related to being exposed to being suddenly diagnosed with some type of diseases.
People as me how are things, I always say it could have been worse! and I am guessing things can be worse.
I personally can most relate to those stories, in the past few weeks my right eye tear channel (lacrimal duct) is completely blocked due to over use of glaucoma and corticosteroid drops!
The two headed sword is here: when I stop using glaucoma drops, I feel pressure in my eye turns to feel pressure in my head and dizziness. Simultaneously, stopping corticosteroid drop makes my eye quite read and of course internal inflammation occurs!
If I use them, I get eye feels warm with fever and I cough a lot as smallest bug enters my right nose makes my to cough and sneeze for over 20 minutes. and of course, since the tear drainage is blocked I cry from one eye, continuously!:-)
So, be happy if you are healthy and can function :-)
