"Eye" yi, yi
I was cleaning out from under my bed today and I either got dust or animal dander, (as my cats love to sleep under my bed, in my eye. Now, I'm embarrased to admit that there was so much crap and dust under my bed that it got in my eye, but that's what happened.

Why am I telling you this? Well, my eye started to itch and burn and water and I was freaking out because it felt like something was in my eye. I went to my bathroom mirror, looked in and found nothing. I have long eyelashes and I used to get really bad stys, but now at least once a week an eyelash falls in my eye. It sucks! I look in my eye and I can see the black eyelash on the white part.

Speaking of the white part, (cornea) it was puffy and swollen and I could press on it and feel nothing, like it was a Tom & Jerry cartoon. It FREAKED ME OUT!, my pupil was small and dialated and around my eye was all swollen and there was a little pus. I looked in my medical book and I think what I had was "Allergic Conjunctivitis" I put a cold wash cloth on it and lied down for a while, and it just started feeling better a couple of hours ago.

Funny, that I finally decided to get a much needed chore done and it paralyzed me for hours. I was in bed looking like that blonde chick from Kill Bill with the eye patch--only difference is I can't whistle.

My eye still feels pretty bad, but I can see, which is good. I hope I wake up tommorow with sight and no more pus. Ugh! I'm ready to go to bed now, but I must stay up for "Prison Break".

I guess I should sweep more often, wear goggles or keep my cats from under my bed.

Well, out of those three wearing goggles sounds like the best bet.

    I can't whistle either.

    See what kind of things can happen when you clean?! That's why I just don't bother...it's too dangerous (at least that's what I'm going to tell my parents when they visit me & scoff at the dust)! ;D

    Eye is much, MUCH better. I've been trying to keep from rubbing it, but it sort of itches a little. But it's pretty fine now. WHEW!
