6th nerve palsy

has anyone ever had this? what did you do?
how did you handle it? how do you cover your eyes
to prevent the double vision? is it caused by stress
or uncontrolled sugar? it seems like everything draws
attention & like i really
need it, ugh!!! i had a bandage & now got an eyepatch, like
the pirate kind. it's all like freaky to people. any words
of wisdom? open to suggestions..............

thank you!
