So about 2 months ago my left eye lid started to freak out on me. It got a little red and swollen and dry. I was really worried about it, but decided to wait and see what happened. I sterilized all my make-up brushes, washed everything, stopped using this anti-aging face wash I had bought, everything I could think of. It seemed to get a little better, and then one weekend it got worse. So being the vain person that I am, and not really wanting my eyelid to fall off, I made an appointment with the doctor. I don’t go to the doctor very much, mostly because I don’t need to, and because I have a sweet old lady grandma who goes WAY TOO much, and I have this fear that doctors will think I am like that. I filled the nurse in on all that I had done to help my eye get better, and then waited for the doctor. When he came in and looked at the notes he had a few questions.
Dr: So what is the problem today?
Me: I think my eye lid might fall off, and I am way to vain to walk around without an eyelid, so can you take a look for me and fix it?
Dr: So you threw away all your make-up brushes and bought new ones?
Me: Are you kidding me, no way, those are really expensive, I said that I cleaned them all really good
Dr: So do you share make-up with anyone?
Me: Not unless my husband is using it when I am not looking, and I have specifically asked him to not do that anymore.
Dr: (giggles) well you might want to ask him again just to make sure.
Me: Sure thing.
Dr: So did you throw out all your make-up and buy new?
Me: Um, all that crap costs even more money than my brushes, so no, didn’t do that.
Dr: Well I can’t see anything wrong with your eye (I had just come from work so my make-up was still on and it was hard to tell) so just watch it and if it gets worse come back in.
Me: You are going to have to tell me what constitutes worse in your book because I don’t think we have the same definition.
Dr: Well if your eye gets swollen.
Me: Again, you are going to have to be more specific.
Dr: If you can’t hardly open it.
Well this is what I woke up to on Thursday morning:
Here are a couple of things you need to know about this picture.
- It is 5:30 in the morning
- I am ticked off
- I am tired
- I look like Quasimodo
- I burst into tears both before and after this picture because I looked like a freak
- I win the honest blogger award of the day for even showing you this picture.
So I called my boss who had been listening to my eye saga for the last 2 months, and told her what happened and that I wouldn’t be in. I went to the doctor again, this time with no eye make-up on.
And nnnoooI don’t have pink eye, or a sty, or anything like that. I guess it is my allergies, but the symptoms are manifesting in my eyelids instead of the normal way. So I just have to take Claritin for a month.
Today I am thankful my eye didn’t fall off. For yesterday’s post, I am thankful that my family’s clothing sense got a little better.
