My left eye has been crossing in when I fixate on something about 12 inches in front of my face. (It started this summer and no one is really sure why.) Bummer. After three surgeries, (two by butchers) God only knows what the muscles are doing beneath my eyes.
Good news is that the two eyes are working! Bad news is I have gone from a droopy looking eye, to a crossed eye. But this is a sign to me that things are changing, so it is fine with me. Things are changing!
People have always had a hard time knowing where I was looking, so this is won't make a difference. Although, a workman at our house the other day kept looking down at his sweatshirt as I was speaking to him because that is where my eye was pointing, and I wanted to punch him! But I am used to this, used to children saying, "Mommy, what is wrong with her eye?" Whatever. I guess if it was REALLY bad people would just be silent, ("Shhhh, don't stare honey...") so I take it as a good thing that people make comments..."Tell me Heather, what is wrong with your eye?"
Did you get stung by a bee dear?
Oh, what happened to your lid?
Are you looking at me kid or
is there something on my chin?
