Hey! Welcome to my blog! I’m sorry you have pink eye. You must have it or wonder if you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. I get about 50 hits a day from people looking for my blazed eyes. I hope you feel better soon. Oh– I used antibiotic eye ointment, which may or may not have worked since conjunctivitis may or may not be bacterial. At any rate, no harm-no foul since viral conjunctivitis will run the course much in the same way bacterial conjunctivitis will. I also used herbal capsules of eyebright, which also may or may not have worked along with a liquid preparation of eyebright to rinse my eyes of all the ooziness. Again, that may or may not have worked. The good news is I survived and no one in my house got it thanks to my manic habit of washing my hands.

This is what pink eye looks like in case you ever thought you might have had it (if you have to ask, I’m guessing you haven’t).


Thanks to all the parents who refuse the state-mandated-so-I-must-offer antibiotic erythromycin ointment for their babies at birth, I have a stockpile for my personal use (yes I’m self-medicating but this hardly seems sneaky). For the record, the eye drops DO burn and IS uncomfortable (so don’t believe what “they” say in the hospital and no it’s not due to the fact I am already suffering from conjuctivitis). And thanks to the eye ointment my eyes are only pink, on fire, instead of swollen, dripping, or glued shut (as they were this morning; sorry you’re reading this).

I have no idea where this came from but my suspicion lies with a certain drippy eye and nose nephew I have whose father seems to think it’s the cutest thing ever to watch him leak bacteria all over my house. Never mind he would flip if he caught me so much picking my nose in his house or farting in his general direction.

BLAH. Happy freakin’ Friday.  Oh and leave a comment, won’t you?  I like to know who else suffers from such horrors.
