Red-Eyed Bruise Beast, at your service
So I am having some kind of weird allergic reaction to…the world, I guess. I always knew there was something wrong with the unwashed (m)asses.
It started Saturday. Every time I went outside my eyeballs started itching. Sunday morning, I looked terrible.
Some eyedrops later, I look partially human again, but every time I went outside, I’d swell right up again.
Monday morning I couldn’t open my eyes. That is awesome. By Monday afternoon, I could barely see. One of the bonuses of working in a hospital is that when I call for a same day appointment and they have an opening in 10 minutes, I can get there.
Turns out I has an allergy. The doc said that the ragweed is the worst this year and even people who typically do not suffer from seasonal allergies (like me) are suffering. I have claritin and medicated eye drops and now I look less like this:
And more like this:
(So, just tired and like I’d been punched in the face.)
That combined with an astonishing number of bruises on my body make me look…less than my optimal attractiveness. So, I apologize to anyone brave enough to beard the red-eyed bruise beast in her den later. I hope my horrible visage doesn’t permanently scar your retinas…
And Freya willing, I’ll have normal colored sclera tomorrow.
