Okay - yesterday's post was a bit pathetic. Don't you feel bad for my poor family having to see me all day in such a state. It is scary. Today I took a shower and did my hair - sort of - although I'm having eye make-up withdrawal. I am heading to rehearsals with the kids today - and will help as stage manager - but first we're stopping off at Walmart to find an eye patch that doesn't require taping things to my face which evidently I have no tolerance for, and a pair of dark sunglasses as my eye is extremely light sensitive. I took some pictures so you could see that I wasn't as sad as I appeared yesterday, and I am slightly regretting that decision - as before I was only straining to see through the blur of eye ointment and now have lovely spots to accompany this effect.
I did also remember a half sleepy morning waking up and rubbing my dry right eye while my contact was still in there - which is likely what caused the damage. The inflammation has cleared a bit today and I can see the redness/injury is around my iris in a circular pattern! I just recently started wearing a new kind of contact that you can keep in your eyes for 2 weeks - but when they are dry - you have to rewet them. Note to self: be more diligent about that!
