Twitchy Eye

So, it’s not technically a work day, but I’ve been experiencing post-“work” side effects. It has been over 10 days since my eye started twitching. Not the corner of your eyelid twitch that goes away in a few minutes, which at this point I’d take and accept as some sort of blessing from above. At this point my right eye has been experiencing a recurrent “twitch”. I can see it in the mirror, but not every time. Sometimes it just feels like my eye is bubbling (like extra air). At this point I’m begging for it to stop! It doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t cause me interruptions in my work, but it is driving me crazy! Luckily I have a few friends in the  nursing profession who provided me with a few suggestions: Damp cold cloth – hold wet/damp cold cloth to closed eye for 30+ minutes No screen time – try not to engage in any screen time for 24 to 48 hours (tv, phone, computer, etc) Sleep – MOAR SLEEP. Dehydration – drink more water Stress – Ummm, relax? So, I did what I could to accomplish all the goals above, but unfortunately nothing has worked for me at this point. I’m not stresssed (emotionally or physicaly at this point). Cold compress, check! No screen time? Well this is my first extended time in 48 hours! So… winning? Ok, so not perfect, but better than 12+ hours a day, right? Sleep? Well, I get about 7-8+ a night so I’m not lacking there… Dehydration? I consume water like its going out of style, so that isn’t an issue either. Stress? Well, I have my days...

A new adventure

I’m about to embark on an adventure that scares me just a bit, but also excites me. I’ve started this blog to chronicle my daily struggles working at home full-time as a web developer with four children. I’m promising myself to be brutally honest here so that other home workers like me can know what they are going through isn’t just them! I’m scared of what that honest may get me in the end – will people think I’m a nut? 😀 But I’m really happy to dedicate time to share my experiences and hopefully relate to anyone in the same position as I. And hopefully I can provide new work at home parents some tips and tricks on how to balance this crazy...
