LEFT EYE

SUNDAY WHEN I WOKE, IT FELT LIKE I HAD EYE BOOGERS OR SAND IN MY LEFT EYE, BUT I WAS 2 WEAK 2 REACH MY EYE. MARK & A FRIEND AT CHURCH ASKED ME IF I WAS OK-MY EYE WAS ALL RED. I FELT FINE, BUT AT THE EBD OF CHURCH (3 HOURS), I WAS STRUGGLING 2 KEEP MY LEFT EYE OPEN. MARK TOOK OUT MY CONTACTS, & I WAS REMINDED WHY, 4 MANY REASONS, I HATE GLASSES SO MUCH. BY THE TIME MY FRIEND VISITED, I COULD BARE;Y OPEN MY EYE, SO EVEN THOUGH I USUALLY REFUSED OTHERS PRESCRIPTION MEDS & MARK HAD GIVEN ME ALLERGY MEDS (WHICH I FELT WAS PART OF MY PROB.), SOMETHING MORE WAS WRONG. AFTER MY FRIEND REASSURED ME HER PRESCRIPTION MEDS 4 PINK EYE WAS CLEAN, I HAD HER GIVE ME SOME. IT FELT A LITTLE BETTER, BUT A COUPLE HOURS LATER AT MY PARENT’S HOUSE, IT KILLED 2 OPEN MY EYE. SINCE I COULDN’T OPEN 1 EYE ALONE, THERE I SAT BY THE FRONT DOOR, UNMOVING & EYES CLOSED.

WHEN WE WENT HOME EARLY, I HAD 2 SOMEHOW TYPE & SEND SOME EMAILS BY MON. (I HAVE 20+ EMAILS-SOME FROM 12/20 & ABOUT 5 JOURNAL ENTRIES W/REMINDER NOTES 2 FILL IN LATER, SO WHILE I’M SWAMPED, THESE HAD 2 BE DONE THAT NIGHT) SO AFTER SOME MEDS, I LET MY EYE REST SOME, THEN MANAGED 2 OPEN MY RT. EYE & SLOWLY GO FROM MY ROOM, DOWN AN ELEVATOR (WHICH I CAN DO ALONE NOW!), 2 MY COMP. & TYPE THOSE EMAILS. ALL WAS DONE W/MY LEFT EYE CLOSED & WATERING, MY RT. EYE OPEN. IT MADE ME SO SICK 2 MY TUMMY, I WAS SURE I WOULD THROW-UP & WROTE A HURRIED LAST EMAIL, THEN WENT 2 BED AROUND 9:40. I DIDN’T SLEEP AT ALL. IT HURT SO BAD-MY EYE WATERED & IT FELT LIKE DAGGERS IN MY EYE. U WOULD THINK THIS WAS A CAKEWALK AFTER MY GUTS WERE PULLED OUT REMOVING THE FEEDING TUBE & BEING AWAKE WHEN I WAS CUT OPEN 4 A SURGERY, BUT THE PAIN WAS DIFF.

MON. I SAW A DOCTOR, & PAIN IS AGAIN BEARABLE & I CAN OPEN MY EYE SOME, THOUGH IT IS HARD 2 SEE RT. & TYPING/READING IS SLOWER.

  1. Pink eye is the WORST. I used to get it a ton. The medicine only helps for so long. Warm compresses usually help…followed up by a cool one…
    I hope youe eye gets better soon. I know how much of a bother glasses are. Pink eye definately reminds you how wonderful contacts are.

  2. Jenny, I have not been back to check on your progress in a while, but reading the posts from the past couple of months I have just had tears in my eyes the whole time.

    There are still a couple files of yours in the primusic Yahoo group files, and so your talents are still blessing others in that way.

    Thanks to you and Mark for being willing to share with all of us your struggles and adventures. I can’t tell you how much you have inspired me by reading your posts.
