In any case, I have an eye condition that has yet to be actually diagnosed; the symptoms are described as monocular binocular diplopia, which literally means that I have double vision caused by the way my individual eyes are built (I see double when I close one eye) and by the way they work together (I see double with both eyes open). What this amounts to is seeing four images instead of one, all day, every day. A lot of people think this is the kind of thing that can break someone, but I guess I've never really given much thought to it. My brain is really good about convincing me that I only see one of something, so unless I consciously think about the fact that I see four of everything (as I am when writing this post) I hardly notice; after all, it's the way I have seen everything for pretty much my whole life.
In any case, I've actually got an eye appointment in late July with an eye doctor who thinks he knows what the problem could be, which is promising. Most doctors just go through a bunch of tests for me and say "I don't know! What a conundrum," and pass me off to one of their colleagues who runs many of the same tests. It has literally gotten to the point where I go into the eye doctors and say "I don't need to be dilated. You won't find anything new. Just give me a new prescription." It's a little defeatist, but like I said, I really don't mind how it has affected me and I know what the basic tests will come up with. Back on topic, though, this doctor says he can think of a few possibilities that he doesn't think I've been tested for, and says that it's probably something that started in my childhood (imagine that! I could have told someone as much.)
But sarcasm aside, it would be nice to be able to get the problem fixed. It probably means surgery, but hey, I can rock an eye patch for a few days/weeks if it means I'll finally be able to have depth perception.
Sleep: O (gosh darn cold! I was in bed early but drifted in and out of sleep until about 11 AM.)
