I woke up this morning, as one does on a Wednesday, and went about my routine as per normal. After my shower I dried my face and suddenly, and painfully, realized that my left eye wasn’t closing properly. :shock:
I guess you’ve probably Googled or Wikid it by now but I read somewhere that in most cases it lasts 4 - 6 weeks and doesn’t recur.
Probably won’t help your holiday.
Send Dan an email and see if he has any advice for you. I think in Dan’s case the symptoms subsided over a period of time, so hopefully it will become less severe. Anyway, he’ll probably appreciate a call or an email that doesn’t say “what’s going on with you and Malvern?”
In the meantime, be comfy in the knowledge that people are looking at you and thinking “wtf’s up with that guy’s face?”
If you read the link above it says that people who have had it before get it again in 5-15% or so of cases around 10 years later, that’s me exactly. So apparently I’m special, but a normal kind of special which is kind of good.
So for now I get to take steroids, and wear an eye patch. That’s gotta be all kinds of cool.
