Dinosaur dipshit day.

Posted by: turbomammoth In: The bad days

Oh yeah.

That sucky.

(I’m going to complain a lot today. I just wanted to make sure you knew before getting started :P)


First, it’s cold and raining. Again.

But the most sucky part of the day actually started last night, while I was out to have a coffee and dessert with a friend.

My left eye had been crying for a while now, I don’t really know why (a couple of weeks). I was always crying at night, which made me think that it was because I was tired of my day, or something like that (the air is really.really.REALLY dry at my lab). Anyway. Being in a rush, I did not make any big case of it.

Last night, at the cafe, after having a piece of brownies and a coffee because I behave so well this week, the eye started crying… but I mean LOADS OF CRYING. We left and I headed back home where I washed carefully my contact lenses, washed my face and my eyes and headed to bed.

I had an horrible night.

I was waking up every hour, my eye being all sticky and crusty (yeah, I know : eww!) The cat was waking up all the time and decided it was time to play, I locked him out of the room, had to go to the bathroom 5 times to wash the eye during the night, etc etc.

I woke up early with the firm intention to head to a doctor clinic to have a check up.  After, of course, painfully washing my eyes that was litteraly locked under tons of crusty digusting stuff. I put my glasses on and went off.

I won’t go into how this is a big mess to see a doctor over here, but after going through 3 clinics in town, I finally found one where they could see me. After waiting for almost 2 hours, I met a doc for 10 minutes and to sum up the conclusions of the appointment :

– I probably had some kind of infections in my eye but it won’t go away because I keep putting on my same old contact lenses (I have the hard ones, not the disposable ones);

– Put water on your eyes, if it doesn’t get better in 2 days, put theses antibiotics drops and it should (should!?) be okay ;

– Keep your glasses on ;

– Trash your contacts.

The realities of my life now :

– I HATE wearing glasses (especially while I run, they always slip off my nose) ;

– The contact lenses I wear (well, used to wear from now on) are expensive, about 350 $ for a pair ;

– I don’t have the money for a new pair!! (hello, Visa Card) ;

– I no I have some kind of eyes stuff insurance, but I don’t know how this stuff works as my mom used to take care of all of this (god I’m pathetic) ;

– The only appointment I got to got a new pair of contact lenses designed is scheduled for May 25th (meaning wearing my glasses full-time until there, mainin also no sunglasses, hugh).

Plus my boyfriend is still away.

Plus I need to run tonight. And it’s cold and rainy. And I don’t really want to go.

Can I crawl under a blanket and wait until the moment when I’ll become a real adult get all this stuff figured out like a grown-up? Pleaseeee?


Rambling off for now :-P

Hahaha it’s hard being a grown up! If you have eye coverage through your work,just ask someone at your work who knows about that stuff. They will tell you what to do. Sometimes you have to pay upfront,then the company reimburses you. Or…. They will cover it upfront. Every company is different.
