The Eczema Diaries: To my Asian Self

To my Asian Self:
Your eyes are quite enormous
When they’re not swollen.

That was the first thought that crossed my mind when I compared my normal left eye (with its beautiful double-eyelid fold) with the monstrous swollen and scabby right eye (I’ve lost the fold overnight again). Sigh.

To think that I used to lament about how small my eyes were, and how they’d become slits in photographs.
