Unfortunately, I Really Am That Nerdy

Bad eyeball day

I really, really hate nice days. Even ones that are overcast.

I've got some serious photosensitivity issues. Days as bright as yesterday or earlier today are extremely painful to me, leading to eye pain and migranes; I deal with it with what is quite possibly the geekiest-looking pair of sunglasses ever. I hardly have any other choices.

It's really frustrating when my eyes are still sensitive from too much sun earlier in the day and even in a previous day, so when it clouds over, I still have to use the sunglasses. I'm in a dimly-lit computer lab right now with the blinds over most of the windows shut and it still hurts to take off this pair of sunglasses I'm wearing. I had to apologize to Dr. Yohe after his lecture for not taking off my sunglasses during it- at least it's not as unreasonable there, becuase he had all the windows open. The entire lecture hall is surrounded by large windows, so that's quite a bit of sunlight.

Even with these sunglasses, I've got a headache...

I've been having trouble with sunlight myself now and then lately. Late afternoon, when turning in tapes, generally the sun gets to hurting my eyes a bit, now.

Yay for sitting in a dark room too much.

have ya gotten seen about it yet?

Well, it started back when I got attacked in high school-laser pointer to both eyes. I did see an optometrist then, obviously; minor retinal damage and the expectation that I'd be photosensitive for the rest of my life. Got that one right, although it's at least been far less strong than it was initially.

that's good to hear. That still sucks in all kinds of weather though. Glad it's gotten somewhat better at least.

That's why I wear a hat all the time when I go outside - it blocks off nearly the entire sky, and that's more helpful than you think. Also, just by tipping my head, I can cut out large bright spots. Like the windows. :)

Might not work for you, but it certainly helps me. :)
