One Eye Twitch away From Madness

My eye has decided to start twitching. It isn’t much .. just a little thing that I hardly should notice– except it us driving me up a duxkog wall.

It is the sleep deprivation version of Chinese water torture..: nothing much to complain about but just enough to take me slowly over the edge.

There is Nothing worse than a tiny malady that you caN do nothing about to correct. In college, I broke my middle toe on gymnastics class. The doctor couldn’t do anything to fix it except to give me crutches and tell me to stay off it. Yeah right . Meanwhile I was supposed to walk all over the ISU campus to class how? Same thing with my minor knee injury skiing when I was working in news in KC. I had a second floor walkup and my job had me up and down steps constantly. I had to just hobble along and deal with it–slowly.

I am not patient. I don’t want to “deal with it”. I want it gone and to be fine. Now.

Eye still twitching. Awesome.
