Although it is not really new, is just a new manifestation of an old problem. Earlier, probably 18 months ago, I was complaining of "jumpiness" in my eyes. Dr. Benjamin told me that it is not a new problem, just a realization of problems that have always been there. That is, the problems with my eyes have probably always been there, but my brain has been able to compensate for them and make the unnoticeable. Recently, though, the problem has resurfaced and it is worse than it was before. Earlier, the jumpiness would last for a few seconds and then go away for 20 minutes or so and then occur again. This would last for a few hours and then go away for a few hours and the cycle would continue. Now, however, it seems that my eye problem is nearly constant. In other words, it appears to me (although I don't actually know what happens) that my left eye crosses and everything goes out of focus for a second, then the field of vision in my left eye "bounces" for a little while, then my vision goes back to normal; but, after just a few minutes, the cycle starts over again. It will seem as though my left eye crosses, my field of vision bounces a little, and then it goes back to normal. It is quite aggravating. I am supposed to go to the Dr. later today to see if they can identify another problem or if it is just something else that I will have to live with.
The last couple days I have been really, unusual. I don't know exactly how to describe it. I'm tired all the time. No matter how long I sleep at night I never seem to get enough sleep. The last few days I have noticed that my eyes have been acting a little weird. I tried to explain it to someone but it is like I just can't find the words to describe it right. It is worse when I have to change my focus, when I am looking at one thing and then have to change the focus to something else it seems as though it takes just a fraction of a second to refocus. Now, a fraction of a second does not seem bad until you are driving; then it can be pretty problematic. I also noticed that I seem to get a little dizzy when I stand up. It is not something that really bothers me, but it is a little irritating. It is not bad enough that I think "Oh, no, not this again." But it is something I notice. I don't know, perhaps it is because tomorrow will be the 2 year anniversary of the
