twitchy


Yesterday I was bored at work so I decided to go have an eye exam at the eye doctor on the first floor of my building. They have such nice glasses in there. So I did. And the doctors were great! And then I bought Chanel glasses. I spent like... $300. Cause I was bored.

Hopefully it will make me at least slightly more classy. More classy for Classy in '09. that's my new slogan. Learn it, live it, love it, deny it, laugh at it, doubt it. I will prove you wrong! ... Or correct!

My eye has been twitching like non-stop. Is that a stress related issue? I just Google'd it and the search came up and it said "Eye Twitching: Causes, Symptoms..." SYMPTOMS?? "Your eye will be twitching." I was told, "A twitch sometimes develops during times of increased stress. Twitching has also been associated with high caffeine intake, fatigue or excessive squinting. It can also occur after reading or working on a computer for prolonged periods of time." Well, to that I say... all of the above. There's my answer.

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve. It's one of my favorite holidays. Mainly because I like milestones. It marks a transition... a change... a big moment in all of our lives where we can close the chapter to the past year and begin anew. Whether we make a change or not, whether we continue to deal with previous year crap... it doesn't matter. On New Year's Eve you haven't fucked up yet... so there's hope in the air! Previous patterns don't exist on New Year's Eve. I like that.

There's so much I want to say about 2008... because it was actually a very good year. So, another time.

Chronic eye twitching is often an expression of chronic stress. Doing relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation can reduce or eliminate the eye twitch.

In Chinese medicine, chronic stress primarily affects the Liver (meridian), and one of the classic symptoms can be eye twitches, related to a Chinese pattern of imbalance called "Liver Wind".

Other symptoms of Liver imbalances often include digestive problems.

An evaluation by an acupuncturist can help determine your meridian imbalances and treatment strategies.
