I woke up with one of these this morning:

I have never had one of these before, but I guess they are really common. Michael had one last year and it freaked me out. You should have seen some of the other images I found on Google. Oh, my goodness! Disgusting! I can handle the above illustration, but those other images are just disturbing to me.

I have an eye phobia thing - anything having to do with eyes (especially touching of the eyes) just gives me the heebie-jeebies. I'm a terrible patient at the opthamologist's. When she wants to test me for glaucoma, I just can't let her do it.






and nobody gets hurt...

Anyway, I noticed it when I was getting ready this morning. It made plucking my eyebrows and doing my eye makeup very difficult for me, because I just about grossed myself out whenever I saw my eye.

I guess I've got to learn to live with it though, because it will take 10-14 days for the blood to be absorbed back where it came from.

Not up for a second career in the medical profession?

Hey, it's not nearly as gnarly as things that involve pus ;0)

I'm sure you are still muy bonita!

Hang in there, ole' Bloody Eyes! (just kidding...I couldn't resist!)

Hope it's all better soon.

Man, how did you get that? Pink eye is bad enough, but a bloody eye. I sure hope it heals quick for you.

Michelle said...

Right there with you on the whole "touching the eyes" thing. I can't fathom how people do it every day when dealing with contacts...((((eeeeewwwww!!!)))

OH MY #6 said...

Oh dear.
