Patch the Pirate
For the last couple of days, my right eye has been getting redder and redder. I don't know what happened to it. I haven't worn my contacts for a few days. This morning I suspected I was getting pink eye and so not wanting it to get worse, I spent a couple of hours this afternoon in the ER. I hate going for such trivial things - but I am so glad that I did. It turns out that somehow my cornea is scratched, and was only getting more and more irritated everytime blinked my eye. A numbed and dyed eye, a special light, some ointment, an eye patch and a referral to an ophthalmologist - and I look like a pirate. I think I should get some sort of award for posting the ugliest picture of myself on my blog. Or at least some ice cream.
