My Eyes! My Eyes!

Driving home the other evening my eyes were very watery and irritated. I assumed it was the glare of night driving – I am, after all, very delicate.

Yesterday morning I woke up with my left eye red and swollen. Almost swollen shut. Did I get into a bar brawl while sleep walking?

Last night the left eye hurt so much I kept it covered with hot compresses.

This morning it felt like …



And the other eye is having sympathy pains.

I feel so pretty.

I took Mia and Siren to the vet this week so maybe I’m having a reaction to all the hair they shook off as they wailed and flailed.

Or maybe I have a silly cold since the rest of my head is a mess as well.

Or perhaps I’m morphing into …



Oy!

Conjuctivitis? Whatever it is, get well soon!

Micky-T said...

Mercy me, please don't morph.
Close your eyes, click your heels and know that there is Hope!

Hope it's nothing that lasts.

Akelamalu said...

Oooer I hope it's not something drastic and that it clears up soon Dianne. x

Bond said...

OH MY... hoping it gets all better soon

Daryl said...

Oh no! Not that crazy broad.

I hope its nothing more than a minor irritation tho it sounds a little like pink eye

Mountain Photog said...

You're morphing into. . . Kenny Rogers?? LOL!

Seriously, get thee to a doctor, Dianne--ASAP! You do not want to neglect your eyes. As someone else said, it's probably just conjunctivitis and easily treatable but it does need to be treated.

Keep us posted!

Anndi said...

What's going on with the people I love?

Chicklet has a bruised toochis and you have a swollen eye?

Maybe have a nice doctor check it out?

Rob Inukshuk said...

Oh no! You take care of yourself now, 'cos you don't wanna end up looking like that!

Hilary said...

Oh do get it treated.. or at the very least smoosh some Polysporin in it a few times a day.. since you're not seeing out of it anyway. :/

Feel better soon!

Mrs. C said...

If it's that bad, it might be time to ask for a ride to the doctor!! I hate going, though.

Ron said...

I know I'm probably the only one on this post who's going to react this way, but...

Bwhahahahahhahahahaha

Bwhhahahahahhahahhaha

That last photo just KILLED me!!!

Everyone once in a while I'll see her face on the Internet while googling for something and I just GASP! The horror!

But anyway, dear lady...DO get your eye checked out if you can. Either that or try putting a nice thick STEAK on it.

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!

I'm sorry, but you know ME....I always find the humor in things.

Love ya!

Oh my, is it still painful?

Ivanhoe said...

Jeff B said...

If you morph into that hideous beast do yourself a favor and dig a big hole in the back yard, climb in and pull the dirt in over yourself.

DAMN!!! That is one scary biotch!

Cherie said...

Oh, dear! I hope you feel better soon.

Linda Reeder said...

Ouch! Please don't morph. Please get treatment if it lingers.

Liberality said...

If it is an infection you will have to go to the doctor to get the medicines you will need. But you know that...;~)

Raven said...

Poor baby! I hope you recover quickly with no permanent side effects. No morphing please.

Jay said...

Yikes! That looks bad. Hope it gets better fast!

Lily Hydrangea said...

hope you feel better soon Dianne!

Grayquill said...

Yikees I thought I might sleep well tonight - now all hope is gone. That picture scared me. :)
I hope your eye gets better soon.

Scott Oglesby said...

Maybe you’re getting an allergic reaction to something. Do you wear contacts? Or maybe it’s like a sty in your eye type of thing. If it gets any worse, go to an eye doctor!

Matt-Man said...

Oh dear God. Please, DO NOT MORPH. Hope your eye gets better. Cheers Di!!

fermicat said...

OMG! Did Mia and Siren punch you in your sleep? Zowie. I hope it gets better, Pronto!

Reb said...

Sibu sneezes in my face and I wake up feeling like that (allergic - whatever). Do try not to morph, god knows one is bad enough. Take care of your eyes.

Linda said...

Oh man - what Jeff B said! That is way too hideous of a fate for you to have to suffer!

Hope whatever it is clears up soon and there is no permanent damage!

storyteller said...

Hope your eye problems are short-lived. Both photos made ME wince ... seriously!
Hugs and blessings,

~Just me again~ said...

Oh my, I hope your eyes get better and you don't morph into whatever 'that' was. ;)

Dianne said...

THANK YOU EVERYONE!

for the concern and special thanks to all who laughed with me, I hate whining and the only way I can make it thru posts about feeling sick is if I make fun of me.

The eye is better. I think it's because of an awful head cold.

maryt/theteach said...

Hope your eyes are a LOT better, Dianne! Or that you saw a doctor...

jabblog said...

Dianne - that looks so painful! I do hope you're feeling better now. Yikes!!

Lu' said...

If I were morphing into that I'd go back to the vet and ask to be put down. HA!

The Quiet Rage said...

EEEEEEKKKK! Don't morph into that! You'd be blogging about how your lips got stuck in a pool drain.
