Blah

For the first time since August 2007 (the beginning of my foray into depression/anti-anxiety meds) I am having a blah day. I totally forgot what this felt like.

As a result of The 4 Month-Long Cold that has been inhabiting my body, I developed an eye infection on Saturday. I rounded up some Tobradex (any contact-wearing person worth their salt should have this on hand) and used some before I put my contacts in, but decided it would be OK to still wear my contacts all day. For good measure, I used a bit more Tobradex before bed on Saturday.

When I awoke on Sunday, it was safe to say that the infection was much worse and my left eye was matted shut, so I decided to wear glasses. Now, remember, I did get new Coach frames, which I love. And I'm all about wearing my glasses for an hour or so before bed every night.

But when I wear them during the day, I just feel out of sorts, kinda off, and damn it if my hair never fixes right. All day yesterday I just felt hung over and kinda yucky. I even agreed to lie down w/ The Politician and take a nap with him, and I haven't taken a nap outside of pregnancy since I was 18 months old.

After we all woke up from our naps, Mr. Sasha wanted to drive down to his parents house to see their puppies. While we were there, my right eye started acting up and involuntarily started closing and throbbing. Long story short (sorry about that) the whole 40 minute drive home I was having to apply pressure to the eye to keep it shut and trying to get it to stop throbbing, and Mr. Sasha was seriously considering pulling into an ER, and I wasn't saying no. It was that bad.

But we made it home, I used the drops, and about an hour later I was able to open the eye. Good lord. Today, I'd really just like to go back to bed.

So no funny from me today. If anything happens, I'll take some notes and fill you in later.

Pin It!

I am so sorry to hear you're not feeling well! I know the feeling of being used to contacts and feeling not normal while in your glasses. Before Lasik I had to wear my glasses for a month and I swear wearing them made me feel clumbsy and deaf. Is lasik and option for you?

I saw you driving today on your way to pick up the kiddos I bet. A and I were leaving the park over by the library. Anyway, I didn't wave until we drove by cus it took me a sec to register, but I just wanted to say that in that split second glimpse, I thought your hair looked fab. I hope your eye is better!!

Is it so weird to tell you that the EXACT same thing happens to me when i get an eye infection!? I am soooo crabby and my hair looks like crap. Also? My glasses? Heinous.

Ouch! I hope your eye gets better. I freak out when I have something in my eye let alone an infection, I can't even imagine. Feel better.

I feel the same way about my glasses. I wear them pretty much only in the early AM and late PM and when I get the lovely pink eye and have to wear them I feel like I'm not dressed or something. Like I can't 'start' my day.....I even bought cute ones, but glasses just aren't me. I do love sunglasses though..hope eye gets better. MILK IT for a few days, too.
