The last few days have been a little bit crazy.
It started off last weekend with an irritated, bloodshot eye, which I quickly (and wrongly) diagnosed as pinkeye. It then progressed into something much worse. Lots of swelling and pain. Can you imagine a blood red golf golf ball painfully lodged into your left socket? Then, I was unable to focus. Then, I lost my vision.
It was scary.
In my mind I was officially going blind. I was the victim of an extremely rare, obnoxious disease. I can be a bit melodramatic sometimes. Just a bit.
Two specialists later, I was officially diagnosed with having a severely dry eye. Dry eye? Can do this?
I've known Mark for 10 years, and he never leaves the house without a small bottle of Visine in his pocket. Me? I suffered silently and unquestionably with dry, itchy, eyes for the past year. Not once did it occur to me to seek relief in the form of eye drops.
I have learned my lesson.
I've also learned to never "google" medical symptoms again.
My eye is doing much better. The pain is gone, but I still have yet to regain all of my vision. The doctor thinks it should be back within the next week.
Feeling better, I also made a new bracelet, which I hope to post later today or tomorrow.
