I have been struggling over the last week or so. I’m fed up. I’m grumpy. I want to be able to blink without my eyelids feeling like sandpaper. I’ve been to the doctors four times. One of the doctors used google to diagnose me. No, I’m not joking. I’ve tried upping my normal antihistamine, I’ve tried two types of antibiotic eye drops, I’ve tried different types of allergy eye drops, I’ve tried a strong antibiotic eye gel and I’ve tried antibiotic tablets. I’ve not worn my contact lenses and I’m most certainly not wearing any eye makeup therefore I’m miserable. And my eyelids are as scratchy and swollen as ever. It has lasted 7 weeks. I’m fed up! And I’m getting desperate for my eyes to get better in time for our trip to Venice in 13 days. I’ve been whining. A lot. And I hate feeling down and grumbley. But I’ve just not been able to get past my negativity these last few days. This morning I was finally referred to a specialist eye consultant and I’m hoping that he’ll be able to fix me. It’s costing me £180 to see him! Please tell me why I pay national insurance again? Right, rant over.
My lovely mother knows just how to make me feel better. She is taking me out on Sunday afternoon for some brand-spanking-new glasses, as I think it may be quite a while before I can wear contacts again! I’m excited!
I hope to be back on-form and mended very soon. With photos of course!
