#Microblog Monday: The Eye Twitch



I have an eye twitch that's been going for about a week now, off and on (but mostly on). It's not just perceptible to me, but if you're looking me in the eye, you can totally see my eyelid jumping about.

It's probably related to the end of the school year, lack of good sleep, stress from balancing school stuff and adoption stuff and home stuff (adoption stuff is winning lately), and the crazy weather patterns that have us going from hot to cold and dry to flash flood and my head going from normal to achy to full-blown migraine.

And it's probably related to vitamin deficiencies. I stopped taking a vitamin when I stopped taking prenatals after taking them diligently for six years for what turned out to be no real useful reason.

The eye twitch had me starting up a One-A-Day women's thing, a big horse pill but nothing compared to all the fish oil and CoQ10 and giant organic prenatals I was on. Hopefully that helps. (I hope it helps with the evil leg and foot cramps that have been plaguing me in the middle of the night, too.)

Summer is coming, precious, precious, summer, and I think my eye twitch will disappear as it comes into focus. I need a reset from this year. It was both an extraordinarily challenging (yet also rewarding) year student-wise, and the year that took me from my last transfer to the surgery that exposed the Asherman's to two failed cycles in a row to this point, where we are done with our home study from our end, just signing it in a few weeks when it's processed and in our hands, complete. Big changes, big emotions, big challenges.

It's amazing how stress can become a tangible, physical thing. However, I think that my eye twitch is nothing a few lazy days in the chaise lounge in the backyard with my stack of books won't cure. (Having the profile book done and ordered will probably help, too, but for now I just want the chaise and the books and no schedule so desperately).

  1. Stress does manifest that way, so I hope you get into that chaise lounge STAT. I like that we have summer to reboot and recharge. I hope the twitch goes away soon.

    1. Almost there! Last day with kiddos today, last day next week. Now my days are truly 8-3, which is lovely (because that is never the case during the school year, as you know!). Summer is such a lovely time.

  2. When does your summer start?

    I'm glad you're coming up on a chunk of space to reset and recharge. You HAVE had a bit going on in your life, hmmmmm?

  3. Summer starts soon! Today was the last day with students, and next Thursday is our last day in school. I can see my chaise lounge from the window, and it's calling to me! This has been such a busy, busy year. I need this break so badly, and it's almost in my grasp! :)

    1. Almost... only three days left of school (the sweaty, no-student, cleaning-up days) and then the R&R can begin!
