Eyes Wide Shut

I don't think I wrote about this, but maybe I have and have just lost my mind. Oh well.

My mom called me a few months ago and asked if I sleep with my eyes opens. Apparently she had visited her eye doctor and he said that based on discolorations or something, he could tell that she didn't shut her eyes all the way when she slept. So now she has this gel stuff she puts under her eyes so they won't get dried out.

My brother is a known eye open sleeper. It's actually quite creepy. His can be almost halfway open at times. My dog's do that too sometimes but hers also wiggle around if she's dreaming which is double creepy.

I've never been told that I do that, but in the past few weeks, I've been noticing that my eyes aren't totally closed as I'm falling asleep. It's because if I squeeze them, or shut them more, it will get darker. So now I am paranoid that I am a creepy eye sleeper. Or am I just delusional before I go to bed and just think my eyes are open? Or are they open because I am thinking they are, but really they would be shut?

Conclusion: I need a sleeping mask.

My eye Dr. advised me last year that I too sleep with my eyes partially open. I too was given gel stuff to help with the dryness. So with that said, sleeping with your eyes partially open is the new norm.
or you need someone to start watching you sleep to find out ;)
