My fucking eye.
How does it break in a way that an eye doctor can’t really tell me what is wrong with it exactly yet can prescribe the medicine that will fix it… but only if you can actually survive taking the medicine.
This is how this ordeal started about 25 days ago..
Doctor: So Chris basically your eye has been like this for a month but you ignored it…
Me: Ya.. u know.. no big deal.. but I promised my mom I would get it checked out so here I am… I’m sure I’ll live.
Doctor: Your eyes are a big deal you need to come in when you have a problem.
Me: I really didn’t think it was a big deal.. sore eye.. and it woud hurt for two days and then go away for three.. so most of the time it was ok.
Doctor: Well there is nothing really “wrong” with the eye.. just some chemicals off, you need to do these eye drops ever 4 hours for 10 days.
Me: Sounds easy enough thanks doc.
Now.. I know that doctor just had to have had an evil grin on as I walked out his door.. Over the next few days I took the medicine.. following the same routine religiously… shake bottle for 30 seconds drop 1 and only 1 drop of liquid into your eye. Do not wear your contacts while dropping the liquid in. Now I knew there was something strange about this medicine when after the first day I woke up feeling like a train ran over me, but Christine assured me I was imagining that this medicine was poisoning me and that I neeeded to just stop being a whinny bitch and take the drops.. I agreed.. I made it about 4 days into the whole process.. my eye felt great.. but I just couldn’t handle the medicine anymore.. I didn’t care what Christine said.. this medicine was like swallowing a glass of nails laced with strict-nine.. so I took my chances quit with the medicine and hoped the eye was cool.
Three days later my eye was back to being flawed… and I was reaching a new level of irritation.. there were no acceptable choices.. return to the medicine that is obviously giving me cancer at a profound rate.. visit the doc and make him give me something new.. which with my schedule is just unacceptably pain in the ass, or just forget about the eye and deal with it being broke 40% of the time. I’m not sure if it was logic or just pure stubborness but I decided to give the medicine another try.. this time I was like.. ok this shit can’t hurt me… HAH… I made it exactly 7 days.. (the min required).. my voice is gone, my throat is raw like I turned it inside out and slide down a gravel hill on it… I was the grumpiest fucking dude on the planet for 7 days. I mean I wanted to inflict horrible pain on flowers… I avoided Christine so I wouldn’t need to explain my violent and sudden fits of rage.. and I swear I was like one of those walking commercials. Take this eye drop to fix your slightly broken eye.. in the process we will fuck you up mentally, physically and emotionally. Now maybe I was allergic.. maybe this medicine is just nasty.. but you take it THROUGH YOUR EYE how bad can it be RIGHT… RIGHT? Well folks it no fucking visine eye drop that’s for sure. I’m not sure if anybody is a doctor but the active ingrediants are Prednisolone Acetate 1.0% and Benzalkonium Chloriade 0.01% I can’t remember my chemistry but seriously those sound like two chemicals that can be mixed to create a bomb…. so here I am.. about 5 days after finishing the medicine for the second time.. so far the eye is good.. my voice hasn’t return completely and my throat hurts but I think things are returning to normal… but I’m not really sure but I do know that if the eye breaks again.. I can pretty much promise it’s going to stay broken until it decides to fix itself this time.
