I think I broke a world record today.
WAIT FOR IT...
In and out of...
WAIT FOR IT...
Urgent Care and picking up my prescription (includes all waiting and driving done)
WAIT FOR IT.. (do you want to punch me a little? I want to punch me a little)
IN ONE HOUR.
Okay, so here's the skinny.
4 days ago I woke up and my eye was just irritated. It hurt to blink, have it open, have it closed, whatever. I figured that a Sty (is that how you spell it? Or is it Stye?) was developing and in a couple of days it would go away. Well, the sty (stye) never showed. It just became a big blob of ick. It hurt and still hurts, but yesterday it began to itch so I figured something was up.
I did something very grown up today and found myself a doctor. Unfortunately, my current insurance doesn't cover the doctor I've had my ENTIRE life so I've put off finding a new doctor since nothing was wrong with me.
For those of you in looking but not really looking for a doctor, take my advice and go find a doctor before you are in my shoes, with an icky and uncomfortable predicament and have to pray that the doctors you call are accepting new patients.
Anyway, I got through and found me a doctor only to learn I needed a new patient appointment.. on the 12th of November.
I didn't really want my eye to fall out of my head before then so I had to go to the icky urgent care place around the corner from my house.
$50 later, I have been diagnosed with an infection or an infected sty (stye) and have to take some antibiotics and put this oooey goooey ointment in my eye. To me, this seems like a very expensive infected sty (stye), that doesn't even include my prescriptions. Seems like I didn't quite get the BANG for my buck here. (sarcasm in case that didn't come across... I'm not completely insensitive.)
This ointment is supposed to go into my eye in a ribbon and I'm supposed to blink it in to where it needs to go.
That would be easy if the ointment wasn't like the sealer you use for tiling okay. So far, its only stuck to the tip of the tube and I've had to shove my finger in my eye, I'm sure that helps, only for it to stick to my lashes and the rest of my eye.
I really just feel like getting an eye patch and a parrot and walking around grunting "arrrrrrrrrrrg"'s and "AHOY MATEY"s to those who cross my path.
YO HO YO HO A PIRATES LIFE FOR ME!
*ahem* my bad.
I wonder what sleeping will be like with an eye that is practically glued shut.
I'll let you know.
So, CAN someone PLEASE tell me how to spell sty (stye)?
I'm too lazy and my eye hurts.
