Facing Fear (14): Wearing Pink (Eye) on Valentines Day!

Monday, February 13, 2012

This blog deviates from my theme of finding fears to overcome because it talks about a fear that I didn't deliberately seek. I am currently facing a potentially disastrous Valentine's Day. I just got back from the eye doctor. I have pink eye!!

No, it's not pink, pretty, & lacy!! It's inflamed, itchy, runny, and it hurts!!

We'd actually planned a nice valentines day. Fortunately, our plans included dinner and a movie at home - not a night on the town!

To be honest, I feel so gross right now, I want to eat a few pounds of chocolate to ease my pain. I'm going to nuke up some hot almond milk and eat some chocolate rice cakes instead (thank you spark people featured article).

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

    A home remedy that may help; I brew a cup on tea, and then save the tea bag. Place it on your eye once it has cooled enough, and leave it there for about 15 minutes. It is very soothing. Hope you start to feel better. emoticon

    Awww - sorry to hear! Well, hopefully now that its been diagnosed you'll get some relief from meds.

    Only tonight at Zumba did I realize that I have to work tomorrow night. Guess I'll be spending my Valentine's with 4 co-workers! LOL!
