There’s a nap for that.

Lately I have been battling fatigue well beyond what is normal, and what I can blame on the kids. I think it is just a normal sickness because Eriksgirl is suffering from it too (maybe it really is the kids 🙂 Kids are always bringing stuff home so hopefully that is all this is.

All that aside Eriksgirl may just be tired from the “sleep curse” she has had as long as I have known her. I asked her if someone put a http://www.atletipercaso.net/8105/storie-yolanda-gail-devers-la-volonta-oltre-la-malattia#voodoo spell on her and she did not know. As I was thinking way back to 1993 there was an incident for her where there was a lady that came into Grandy’s and Ike, the manager, insisted loudly, I was not there, “she is a witch!” I was told she had long nails, I think longer than Gail Devers (Ike probably never liked Gail Devers either). Maybe it was the witch and she cursed both of them! 😉

Eriksgirls picture of me showing Anisocoria

It is not a tumor! 😉

Eriksgirl has uses my eyes as her personal gauge to see if I am near a seizure. Maybe that happened for her after my last seizure where my pupils were very different sizes, like someone with a concussion and this was before I hit the floor.  I told her they were not off by much when she showed me the picture.  She exclaimed they should be equal. 🙂

What I do know is that the Anisocoria (different pupil sizes) is relatively new for me, and not something I have had my whole life. This would make the Anisocoria most likely caused by Lyme, or MS. I think for either of these it would point to optic neuritis but my eyes are checked regularly (not to say that optic neuritis could not be missed). Other than that I have no great ideas other than a tumor, which I am pretty sure it is not that (recent MRI :-). (or I keep getting concussions, might explain my repeating myself so often to the kids)

I guess it will be something to discuss at my next neuro exam. I cannot remember the last time he examined my eyes. Fortunately, my optometrist has a really nice computer/camera that takes a picture of the back of my eye to look for problems. He is not a doctor, but he regularly checks the optic nerve.
