I have a loathesome disease !

It’s called “trichiasis”.

It’s really painful; or really uncomfortable; or really annoying; or really distracting. Or all at once.

I’ve had this ghastly affliction for many years – I reckon around ten or so.

Why it chose me I know not. I never heard anyone in my family speak of it; and cerrtainly no-one had to visit their specialist carer to have it looked after …

So It’s apparently not genetic. Or inherited. Or familial. Whatever.

And once you’ve caught it, you’re never free of it for the rest of your days. Thank all the gods, its best feature is that it goes once you’ve had it treated; and there can be lengthy breaks until it recurs.

This is it:

REEEEEEEALLY disgusting, eh ?

Ingrowing eyelashes.

  1. Ouch! Anything that makes our eyes more sensitive is extremely bothersome! Hard to knit and crochet with small feathery daggers stabbing you in the eye! :-(

    1. Indeed, best-looking Debra around – hard to do bloody anything !
      On Wednesday night I went to bed at 6:30 because it was too painful to keep my eyes open. Of course that meant I was wide awake around 1 am; so I cuddled Lui for ages, and then got up and had coffee. There’s a theory that if you lie down RIGHT AFTER coffee, it actually promotes sleep; and it did. [grin]


  2. why grandma, what big red eyes you’ve got!
