So I have had a blocked tear duct this week. Have only been able to see out of my right eye. Can’t drive, can’t work, I’m bored out of my skull!!!!
I went to my regular doctor who sent me to the eye doctor. That was $72. Then I went to the eye doctor who is very cool letting me pay $30 cash but said if I put hot compresses on it, it would go away and be fine. Yeah, right! I put compresses on it Monday night and Tuesday at work. I thought it was getting better! I get home in Tuesday and the thing below is on my eye! What the hell?
Gross, right? So I called and got a last minute appointment with a specialist on Wednesday. He took one look at it and prescribed me antibiotics. Why couldn’t the first doctor do that I have no clue!
Well, it finally popped or burst in my sleep last night. Now I have a lovely crater in my eye and the new doctor says to try and stay in bed today so nothing else gets in it. So I let my boss and coworkers know. My boss is cool, says to keep him informed. My coworker says, “Didn’t you realize that bitch is off today?” Like I could help this! Damn woman! I don’t care. She didn’t have plans, she could have cancelled her day off. She has taken every damn Friday off for the rest of the year! So no, I can’t go in. My eye hurts, it’s a damn crater, and I’m not trying to stare at a computer all day or get stressed when I’m trying to heal.
Plus I’m not eating much. I tried yesterday. I ate a homemade biscuit with butter for breakfast, threw that up. Tried eating cheese and crackers for lunch, threw that up. On the plus side, I was able to keep down a fun size 3 musketeers but that was about it. I’m down to 205.4 which I believe is .4 below where I was when I got stressed and busy and wasn’t following my plan much. So that’s a good thing. As long as I can keep it off when I start eating again. I’m a bit afraid to eat. I don’t like throwing up, who does? So I tried to read a new book my Mom got for me but it hurts my eye so that’s out. Guess I’m just going back to sleep. At least for a while. I have lots of laundry to do and we really need groceries. Plus I have to pay bills which means I do not have much left. I got a bit overwhelmed with them this month because of all the doctor visits.
Today is Halloween!!! My favorite non holiday of the year. My brother and his family were supposed to come over but I’m not sure if they are now. He got a new job and had to work. But that’s great for them, they needed to find something.
So that’s my brother and sister in law. So I’m off for a bit more sleep. Have a great day. Sorry I’m. It writing as much as I was but now you know why!
