I've been to two eye doctors and a hospital today. My optometrist sent me to an opthamologist. He gave me a pretty thorough exam including dilating my other eye and shining lots of bright lights into my gaping pupils until I thought my brain would melt from the photonic pressure. The diagnosis is iritis, which means my iris is inflamed, though probably not from any sort of infection. Could be an auto-immune fuckup, who knows. He ordered some blood tests to check on a couple things (thus the hospital visit) and got me some ointment for when I sleep and said to come back in two days.

In the mean time, OW OW OW! I'm wearing sunglasses indoors with the lights out cause the light it burns us. I can't really read too well (I have the font size pumped way up so I can write this), so I'm not going to be good for much for a while.

The full-on cranky hasn't hit yet, but just wait a day or two and we'll see if I'm biting people's heads off. I can't even enjoy watching DVDs or reading, which is what I usually do when I'm sick. I need some books on CD to keep me occupied, or perhaps someone to come read me a story...

Now I get to go fight the mobs and get my new prescription filled. Maybe I can shop for food in cognito while they are fixing it up. Crap, it just started raining! Well, now I get to be half-blind, in pain, cranky and wet, all at the same time. Maybe I should take up heavy drinking...
