      All of the little oil glands in my lower eyelids were burned, and they finally gave out this winter. I thought that I had a bad eye infection. I went to an opthamologist today. I'd been using hot compresses several times a day, and putting in eye drops. I just have to step it up.

      Did 35 treatments on head and neck. Lost taste, spit, swallowing became an issue along with a constant runny nose. Lost part of beard, and had a nice pink burn for a long time. Now 3+ years out, still have swallowing issues, taste will never be the same. I do fluoride treatments each night for my teeth, and so far no problems with them. Yeah. I feel very lucky that I didnt have more problems than I did.
