Hey guys, so I thought I should give a little update here on my eye situation, as I shared in this post that I thought that I had a migraine. Well, I was wrong, BUT the support and well wishes were overwhelming!!! I sympathize so much with each of you who shared with me how you suffer from migraines and I can’t imagine that pain- NO fun. Thank you for sharing your tips and amazing advice!
Now, on to my own situation. Before Saturday (when I thought I was having a migraine), my eye had been red and irritated for about a week. Of course, I carried on, thinking it would go away on it’s own. Then Saturday hit, and I had dizziness and severe sensitivity to light and I was convinced I was having a migraine, minus the headache. Turns out, I was wrong. Which I’m actually of course relieved about, because migraines suck and nobody wants to have to deal with those. So I went to my eye doctor yesterday and found out the irritability and redness and light sensitivity and everything? It’s all because of a couple of corneal abrasions. AKA little scratches on my eye.
I know. Ouch. It hurts, just like you would think it does. NO FUN.
But also, totally curable, and thank GOD I did the smart thing and went to my optometrist! So he prescribed me some eye drops and everything should be healed within a few days to a week.
In the meantime, I’ve been doing the awesome glasses with sunglasses on top look. These sunnies are my fave, because you can’t even tell. ;) I think it’s time I get myself some prescription sunglasses… hmmm…
SO! My lesson has been learned. Do not put anything medically-related to the side. If you think something is wrong, get it checked out. Be on top of your own health. Nobody else will be.
…Well, except for all of my loved ones who are looking out for me and kept nagging me to see a doctor. ;) BUT. Only YOU can make that decision. And hey, better safe than sorry, right?
So I guess I’m writing this to remind myself in the future and always, to be proactive and to not let things get worse and worse, because who knows when it’ll be too late. And if you have something you’ve been putting off, I urge you to just DO it, whatever it may be.
I’m fairly convinced you’ll be happy you did. :)
