It turns out...I have a mild eye infection!
I am sure I got his last year while staying at my mom's. My parent's house went through some major remodeling and I think some particles got in my eye and gave it an infection. By the time I got a doctor's appointment my eye looked normal so she said I was fine. I started to only wear my glasses and it was fine.
It wasn't until I started wearing my contacts that it started flaring up again.
I would wear my contacts for a day and then BOOM!
Eye is red AND it hurt...so I would stop for a week,
then again...tried a new pair and BOM again!
Finally, I went to the eye doctor again, she said it looked ok, but then she flipped my eyelids (weird!) and she said that I had a mild eye infection.
I am now putting in drops and it should be gone by Friday.
I hope. I hate eye infections...even if they are mild.
Moral of the story: Fight for your eyeball rights!
I wish I would have and this all would have been left in '09!
