It's Been a Long Time...

The situation with my dry eyes has been a roller-coaster ride. Symptoms got better for a while, but the last few months they've come back again. Not as horrible as before, so that's a plus (if there really is one, haha).

I'm going through increased bouts of blurred vision and my overall vision is waning. For one glorious week last year, my eyesight had improved to the point where I didn't need driving glasses. That gives me hope!

The only thing I can attribute the brief stint with good vision to is I didn't eat any chocolate that week. Googling for chocolate allergy info, there was an article about chocolate consumption causing vision problems in certain individuals. This is embarrassing to admit, but chocolate has been an everyday part of my life since early childhood. It's like my crack. Not for much longer, though. It's time for round two with going chocolate free!
