Before you read this, pull out some cheese - you'll need it to go with all my whining today.
So yeah, my left eye is swollen shut. Really, it just plain sucks. My right eye wants to be shut too - it's tired of doing all my seeing for me. The good news is that it doesn't hurt - there's just a ton of pressure because my lid is filed with fluid.
It started yesterday when it was a tiny bit swollen. I honestly thought I just had a bug bite there that was making it swell a bit. Except today I woke up and I couldn't open my eye at all. Not good.
I was able to get into an eye doctor today and the good news is that my eye looks fine. The bad news is they don't really know what is going on with my eye. So they told me to take ibuprofin and ice it. And to call back if it gets worse. I guess I'm glad it's nothing major. I just wish I had gone in and they said, oh, here's some magic medicine to make it all better.
For now, I'm not doing much. Because my right eye is tired and doens't want to look at anything for a long time. I can't drive anywhere and although the world looks mostly normal with one eye, it looks different and my field of vision is not what is normally and it's freaking me out a bit!
So now, I'm off the computer. I won't be reading blogs today or anything like that. I imagine I will spend the rest of the day on the couch mostly keeping my eyes closed. And I'll be a big crab and a pain in the butt. So pray for my family because they need much patience to survive me right now! LOL
