My Eyelids Recently Became Asymmetrical  

Estimable Member

I'm sorry if I'm wasting your time. A couple days ago I noticed my right eyelid became bigger than the left. The side effects of braces are coming. I'm just updating you guys on what's happening.

The reason I have braces is because I tripped on a cable and smashed my teeth against a staircase. 

That makes me want to bite off someone's nose. That is what I'm feeling right now.

Fred, I don't mean to offend you, but having read several of your posts on this forum, it seems to me that you've got a habit of over-analyzing. I mean, what you're saying here is: one of your eyelids grew to be bigger than the other one within the course of a few days due to the effects of braces. Color me skeptical. If your eyelid truly did change size on such a short time-frame, then it's more likely a result of some type of swelling due to skin irritation rather than braces. It could also just be a result of your psychology playing tricks on you. It's easy to imagine that a change has occurred by over-focusing on a particular feature. I know this from personal experience. This is all the more reason for keeping objective records: photos with same angle and lighting, IMW, etc.

I'm not offended, I understand. 

Perhaps it could be skin irritation or water retention. I wasn't over analyzing this feature, I can feel the excess skin when I blink and it bothers me, because it reminds me of it. I'm at school, doing work and I blink so I start hating myself and getting mad. 

I believe a picture is not necessary you can imagine how it would look like. I will wait it out for a few mire days. If it does not go away than it's an actual aysmmetrical feature.
