I hate helmets
When I where a shield I hate that the shields are so dark I can not see anything intil stick hits (when under car "trying" to weld exhaust). First time I had a shield but kept switchin on and off got lucky no burn, 2nd time I welded for about 3 hours with no eye protection. Was fine till morning, eyes where bright red,sandy feeling, and watering so bad every one thought I was crying my eyes out. First I will tell you what not to do; do not splash water in your face or touch any where around your eyes. I saw a nurse and they told me to go E.R. right away but I had an appt. with my phsychologist(further referred to syche) first. ( I do not believe in new age healing so I can't explain how this worked but it did.) My syche had me do some type of meditation for 20 min. When we where done all my symptoms of welders flash where gone, I can not explain it.
