Hi all, im having a really bad day. I've been crying on & off (more on than off) for the last 2hrs. I normally have a little cry & I then feel better, but not today!!! I have noticed that when I'm crying , the tears are burning & irritating my eyes. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Dear Audra
Our emotions are shot out by stroke and we cry and laugh at all the wrong times. Don't hold back, just let the tears flow. I wonder if the irritation is from your hands or tissues or whatever you use to mop the tears ?

Hi Audra, I developed conjunctivitis in hospital. Also had irritated eyes, but problem solved with eye drops.
