Then, as time went by, and the twitch came and went, I reached the understanding that it was just part of aging; bad stress management. I came to terms with the rogue eye twitch, and accepted it as benign.
The past few days brought an abnormally long visit from the twitch, so I decided to take matters into my hands and [cue scary music] google the twitch. It was shortly thereafter that I stumbled upon this lovely little site, which states in part:
…eye twitching is believed to be caused by an abnormal functioning of certain nerve areas located at the base of the brain which control the coordination of muscle movements…Okay, for some reason, the whole “abnormal functioning” part is not jiving well. I’m suddenly back to being distraught. I can’t help but wonder what bodily function will deteriorate next.
