...and I have not started on my revision yet. Supposed to be working now at Marina Square, reported in sick. Not sick exactly, but unfit for work.
Developed an serious eyelid infection on my right eye yesterday. It started the day before actually (on Saturday), but the magnitude of it was not that bad. I only feel the pain and tug on my eye only when I rub at it. However, when I woke up yesterday (on Sunday) at 10am, my eye was so swollen that I cannot even open my eye.
Went back to sleep, hoping it would go away. Again, at 11 plus, I finally managed to force my eye open. Into a line. I can really use the o.- to describe my appearance then. So, told my supervisor I cannot work that day as well. She was like "huh...so last minute." Er...I didn't exactly ask for this, you know. No one would really wish to feel pain whenever they even BLINK.
Called my Mum, telling her I going down to her shop to get some money to check out the eye. In the end, my Dad ended driving me to the clinic. The doctor took at look at it, and said it was a rather serious case of eyelid inflection. That the pain was caused by the pus inside. So, advised to cut it to drain it.
So, ya...According to my Dad, as soon as the doctor injected my eyelid with the painkiller, the pus actually started flowing out. I actually feel the flow of stuff...but thought it was actually tears at the irritation of the injection.
The pain of the injection was actually quite toe-curling. Okay, maybe it was actually the same as having a normal painkiller injection, but since it was on the eyelid and sensitive place that is...so ya, toe-curling painful. The doctor was actually going "don't tense up, don't tense up. Keep you eye open. Look towards your nose."
Ya...Then, it was not really painful after. I can just feel him using something to scrap at my eyelid. So, it was done, and I was going around with one eye closed for about 20 minutes. When I reached home, I finally forced myself to open my eye. It was numb at that time.
Then, I realized it was actually better to keep my eyes open. It feel heavier and more painful to shut it...So, was leaking excessive pus for the rest of yesterday. Now, still leaking it, but less so. It is actually more feeling it at the corner of the eye, and I need to rub it to get it out... The eye is still swollen but opening, blinking and such is fine.
Can actually work today, since I see fine. But eww...Imagine rubbing at the eyes every 5 minutes...So, ya...hope I don't get an inflection there anymore. I really don't like the injection part...
