*this* John W. Hays’ take on things and experiences

Microscopic Invaders

It’s like an itch that needs to be scratched, but you know that if you do, it will only make it itch even more. So you ignore it, most of the time. But sometimes, you just need to give in and scratch, with gusto, even when you know there is a risk you might scratch a bit too vigorously and damage the skin.

Somehow, that makes you think of your eyes, and how much they really sting. Doesn’t matter if it’s from being tired, or a reaction to all the pollen filling the air, they feel the same either way.

It’s alien invaders, so small we can’t even see. Whether it’s a fungus growing on our flesh, or an allergen floating into our nose, little things we cannot detect make a big impact on our comfort.

Meanwhile, everyday we face a risk of contracting a tick-born disease from a little troublemaker the size of the period at the end of this sentence. It can get to be daunting.

And the thing about the stinging eyes, …that can really mess with trying to write blog posts. Especially when you are sleep deprived.
