My windows to the soul are temporarily on hiatus from the world.

I had an eye appointment earlier today while it was raining outside. My left eye was disturbingly red and my right eye standing at white. It's been like this for over a week now. The redness went away when I did some eyedrops, but you shouldn't do them for too long or over your contact lenses unless you like having dilated pupils. I was foolish for not reading the directions carefully.

Plus there's all these other marvelous side effects like my low sleep hours and stress to take into account. Thanks to my Dad, no, I will not be quitting my job where they nitpicked me to death even though I literally want to die when I walk into that room each day. He thinks I need to stick it out for a recommendation even though he clearly believes what they did to me was wrong.

Then the nurse wanted to know if there was a possibility that I could be pregnant and asked when my last period was. Admittedly, it had been a long time ago, but trust me, that is due to stress. The more I'm under, the further back they get pushed.

So I'm instructed not to wear contacts for the next two days, and take new eye drops.

After I left, I got a slip from the doctor to give to my teacher for the class I was ten minutes late to. She was fairly dismissive, almost rolling her eyes at me. I almost didn't return for that class, what with the state my eyes were in. Plus, the rude students don't help matters either.

Anyway, here's to the road to recovery with my left eyeball. It isn't easy to, but I'll use the same mindset I had when my wisdom teeth were pulled out:

Whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger.

Love to you all,

Oh dear, seems like everybody's lives are giving them a run around. I hope the drops help! Eye problems freak me out so the best thing you did was go to the doctor. I have the same thing with stress & the times of the skips or is acting messed up. Don't worry! At least you'll feel better before finals!

Thank u for the comment!! I'm hanging in there! *hugs*

Hope you get better soon! Sigh I wear glasses a lot now. I guess I care less because I'm already married (and my eyes are just sensitive, sigh)

That job sounds awful. Chin up hun, xx.

I have to get my wisdom teeth out soon... Tossing up whether or not I'd prefer to just die and save the hassle.

"Whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger." ... unless it eats your legs; then you'll be shorter.

Sorry, had to add that. My friend always says that it always makes me laugh.

Hope your eye recovers quickly! *hug*
