    Starting this is hopes of helping an ongoing eye issue that started with trying lash extensions for the first time. I have have ongoing dry eye/burning/swollen lids that have been almost debilitating. Dx with ocular rosacea, blepharotis, MGD, etc. Have done the various dry eye treatments for months. Little help. I am starting to believe TMS is playing a role. Or is completely responsible. I’m not quite there yet. This all started after a period of high stress incuding breast cancer. I was worried before the lash extensions it would go badly but thought I was over reacting. So the day after the extensions when I had irritation I basically freaked out. Went to the eye doctor then opthamologist. Symptoms increasingly worse. I had several doctors actually tell me I looked way better than how I felt. That my eyes did not look bad. But then went to one dry eye doctor who did think I had all sorts of issues and started me on various treatments. They have helped with some symptoms to a degree. I have been very anxious and depressed about how this is impacting my life. I know I am over focused on my eyes. I am scaring myself. I have read Sarnos books, The Way Out, and am working on Curable. I also see a therapist who works on regulating the nervous system. I’m continuing with dry eye treatment right now. I am stating to work on this from a TMS angle with hopes of decreasing the then phasing out the dry eye treatments. So. That is the short version of my story.
