So last night I reposted an old entry about blindness. Then, this morning, I awoke to find myself blind in my left eye.
Pretty crappy coincidence, right?
I guess a few days ago, maybe Sunday or Monday, I either got something in my eye or I scratched my eye. Something happened, because it started to feel a little uncomfortable when I'd blink or whatever.
Over the past couple of days, It's gotten a little worse, as I'd poke and prod and just generally fuck with it. I checked it out thoroughly. I also washed it out under the kitchen faucet. I neither saw nor obviously dislodged any debris, so I figured I must have scratched it.
Anyway, last night I reposted that stuff about blindness, then this morning my left eye was almost completely swollen shut.
I looked like I'd just gone ten rounds in the boxing ring. Or I guess I looked like Will Smith did in that Hitch movie.
I couldn't see out of my left eye, because of the swelling and the mucous and whatnot, so I did the next best thing. I poked and prodded and fucked with it all morning. As RockGirl pointed out, I have a spare eye for when I ruin one.
Then today at lunch, I was having AlliGirl check out my eye. She said it looked "a little bad." Since this morning it had looked "really fucking bad," I went to the restroom, braced myself, and looked in the mirror.
It's a lot better now. I'm not nearly as hideous as I was this morning. Hideousness being totally relative, of course.
And it doesn't hurt as much when I fuck with it.
So I've cancelled my appointment to have my glass eye fitted. At least for now, I'm binocular again.
Update: I had the nurse at work flush it out with some battery acid. That hurt a lot, but now my eye is almost back to normal. Yay!
