Actually, I do have eyes. No offense to the blind or eyeless intended. But I do have iritis aka uveitis and it really hurts to open my eyes because I am very light sensitive. Yet here I am with a pair of dark sunglasses on and peeking at the screen with my less painful right eye by opening it a crack for a few seconds. I could wait until later to read the Dope after a few doses of my eye drops kick in, it’s usually better later in the day. It’s always much worse in the morning, but I have to go to work in 30 minutes and I think that trying to use my eyes will get them working sooner - I’m probably wrong, resting my eyes is probably the best option but I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep.
I had pneumonia recently, too (yes, I’m a mess) and although I attempted to read the Dope I was just too sick. I could only sit up for a few minutes and I couldn’t focus my brain. I could only manage a quick trip through the forums each time.
So, anyway, anyone want to commisserate, or tell their heroic stories of “I must read the Dope now despite a) being eaten by rabid squirrels b) skydiving without a parachute c) being in the Marianas Trench d) Other, explain.”?
[sub]Yes I have seen an eye doctor and go back tomorrow for a recheck. I have expensive eyedrops and I also know the connection of iritis to other disorders which I am having checked out on Monday by another doctor.[/sub]
