Bummer Summer

June 25th, 2014

I’m having a real bummer of a week.

A week from last Sunday the vision in my left eye started bothering me and finally on Friday I couldn’t take it anymore and went to see an eye doctor. He saw a little irritation in that eye, but nothing extreme, and just advised to put some drops in it daily and not wear my contacts for a few days. On my follow up visit Monday he said the irritation was gone but to be safe I wore my glasses one more day. Today I finally took the leap and put in my contacts and that eye is starting to bother me again. WTF?!? It gets sore and a bit itchy and these are brand new lenses so I don’t understand what the heck is going on. Light starts bothering my eye and it feels sore behind the eye, kind of like when I get a migraine.

I don’t understand how the mere presence of a contact lens on that eye could cause such a reaction especially when an exam doesn’t reveal anything of concern. It starts making me feel paranoid that it’s a problem with my retina or possibly a tumor or something behind the eye. I know that sounds crazy, but stranger things have happened and they didn’t dilate my eyes so I don’t think they’d see an issue like that unless they did.

This is really bad timing as we’re going out of town soon so I don’t have the time to go back to the doctor. Our hotel rooms are prepaid and non-cancellable as well. Not that I necessarily want to cancel our vacation anyway (I soooo need to get out of town for awhile), but the weather forecast for our time away is looking worse and worse with each passing day. We have literally waited years to take this road trip and I feel like the universe wants to make sure it’s ruined.

Another shitty thing that happened is that the purse I was so excited to get never came. Apparently it’s not coming back in stock so Amazon cancelled the order the other day. Ugh!

Life just keeps throwing me lemons this week. I really hope things turn around soon.
