Convergence Insufficiency & Me

Last week I went into Optometrists Today in desperation. My migraines were worse than ever, even though I am using my mouth guard faithfully. I discovered that I had Convergence Insufficiency.

Which basically means that while I have 20/20 vision in both eyes, I can’t use them at the same time. If I do the muscles strain causing the terrible migraines that I’ve become accustomed to.

To be honest I wasn’t expecting anything to be wrong with my eyes. I’ve come to terms with the fact that they’re crossed sue to the botched surgeries I went through as a child. I went in there thinking that I’d get a prescription for the light sensitivity I had and that would be the end of that. I was a little upset that something was actually wrong because it isn’t fixable. I’m hoping the glasses help because I really don’t want to add to the list of specialists I’m currently seeing.

I got a bright blue frame because I wanted something cheery and I’m heavily sedated to make the pain tolerable until the glasses get here.

Cue thumb twiddling.

  1. [ Smiles ] I am a bit concerned for you. There are too many health-related issues happening to you.

    I hope that you weren’t a victim of some type of witchcraft.

    I find it really hard to believe that someone could be that “cursed” where health is concerned.

    Do enjoy the rest of your day, Anaala.

    1. Nah love, this is just what happens when your parents neglect your health. The eye thing is related to a surgery my mother forced a doctor to perform when I was a child because she didn’t like how it looked when I strained my eyes playing teacher. 3 surgeries later and it was chronic migraines.

      Maybe someday I’ll check an ophthalmologist to see if what was done can be repaired but right now I’m just exhausted.
