Can't a girl catch a break!?
I woke up this morning with what I thought was bad allergies, but only one eye was bothering me. No big deal, I put in some drops, took a Claritin and wore my glasses today. Well...by second period, one of my students asked 'What's wrong with your eye?'. So, I went to look in the mirror, and my eye was totally red and puffy. Needless to say, I took a half day and went to the eye doctor.
Turns out, I had a bacterial infection from my contacts and it caused* ulcers on my cornea. So, eye drops every hour, no contacts for at LEAST 3 months, and my new make-up plans down the tubes. At least I haven't O'd yet, since the drops have HUGE red warnings all over them saying "do not use if you are pg, nursing or may become pg." and the doc specifically asked if I was pg. before prescribing them.
Edit: left out a word*
