Poorly eye :-(

I'm typing with blurred vision so please forgive any errors. I woke yesterday morning with a very painful sore eye and struggled all day to do my sewing. By lunch time it felt like I had a boulder in my right eye, blinking was very painful and my eye streaming with tears. I rang our Dr's surgery and was told the Dr was fully booked for the afternoon so I told them I would have to nip in to the A & E. On that she said of course if it was an emergency they had an appointment at 4.40!! I had to driven to the surgery 'cos by that time it had become so painful driving would have been impossible. I have aparantly got a small cyst under my eye lid [it felt huge!!] and it had become infected so I now have ointment to put in my eye every 3 hours....ouch it stings :-(

Oh you poor thing - that must be so painful. Hope it gets better soon & then you can get back to creating. Do you have to go back at all - are they hoping this will settle it down? I really wish you well, let us know how you get on won't you?

Take care

Hi Sarah. Thanks for you kind words. Yes I have to go back next friday. I really have no idea what my Dr will do then....think actually I don't want to know as I'm a big baby when it comes to my eyes. A x

No Wipso, don't even think about what he may want to do, concentrate instead on the cream being the cure. Poor you, be brave and try to resist dabbing at the watery-ness, it'll just make the skin sore. Feel better soon gal.

Oh I'm so sorry, Wipso. That looks painful and inflamed. We need to take such care of our eyes.
Stop working for a day or two, maybe?

Hope it'll soon get better.

I think I need to design a snazzy eye patch so that you can rest that eye!! I will be down asap.

Oh, poor you! That's really sad. Hope you're well very soon.

And you're lucky you aren't a pig. Otherwise they would have given you some "oinkment."

Oh OW! Although as I have been reading these back to front I now know it is feeling better, but my goodness that does sound/look sore.
And I too would be lost without my eyesight too awful to contemplate.
