because having a cold for two weeks isn’t punishment enough

Last night as Greg and I were getting ready to go out for dinner, I noticed a smudge on my glasses. I tried to clean them a couple of times, but the smudge persisted. I realized it was my eye, but didn’t think anything of it.

After dinner we hit Old Navy for a bit of shopping, and my eye felt like it was tearing. I looked in a mirror, and some yellowy-green goop was coming out of it. Great…pink eye! I visited the clinic this morning and the diagnosis was confirmed.

I had a(nother) terrible night…every time I coughed my eye hurt, every time I woke up I needed to pee and cough, every time I woke up my eye was plastered shut with goop. And I still have a sore throat.

I’ve officially had enough. I feel like crap. I have felt like crap pretty much consistently for the last two weeks. I don’t wake up each day feeling better than the day before. Some days I wake up feeling worse.

I know I will eventually feel better. I just want that to happen NOW. I feel like my life is on hold until I can feel healthy again.
