April 22 08

i’ve spoken before about my strange disease. in short, in case, you don’t want to click on the link (lazy ass) my eyes are fucked. it’s true. they are light sensitive. as in, i should probably be wearing sunglasses at all time (sex-ay).

they are dry. like, sahara dry. i have four different kinds of eye drops sitting on my desk. i shouldn’t be wearing soft lenses. and by the end of the day, my eyes hurt like hell. usually, all i want to do is RIP my contacts from my eyeballs. Usually, this happens around the time i have to drive home. perfect. timing.

there is nothing more safe than a blind, wee girl in a big van on the roads.

i go to physio twice a week after work. some people go to the gym after work. they are working out their bodies. i am working out…my wrist. i swear, it’s the hottest wrist you’ll ever see. well, at least it will be, once the horrible swelling goes down.

so, my eyes are usually in their finest form when i sit in the chair getting iced and probed. i do a lot of blinking and closing of one eye to make the contacts feel less like needles. but, of course, people around me don’t know this. and probably think i have some sort of weird eye twitch. or, when my eyes start watering, they think i’m crying. i’m a classy, classy girl, i tell you.

this, however, was a first...

dude sitting next to me also getting iced? thought. i. was. winking. at. him.

and winked back at me.

am still mortified.

i guess it’s a good thing i only have an EYE problem…

  1. ROFL! you little minx, with your hot wrist and come hither looks!

  3. You know what you need? The sexy glasses that fade in and out of being sunglasses based on the light.
    You’d look SUPER hot – especially when you’re coming in from outside and your glasses are fading back 🙂
    But seriously, I need glasses, and prefer the look of contacts. I wear them to work and then switch to glasses for the commute/driving/ etc because I can’t handle the dry eyes.
    (though i haven’t worn contacts in months because they drove me crazy when I was pregnant and now I’m WAY too lazy.)

  4. I’m confused. Are you saying you are exactly like Sharon Stone? Or the dude who winked back (you naughty thing) is?

  8. GAH!!!! I would have died, too.

    I loathe dry eyes. Mine are too sensitive for contacts, but I am looking at getting Lasik done. When I do, I will be having my tear ducts plugged to help with the dryness.

  16. I’m sorry, all I saw was that sexy Corey Hart and couldn’t stop drooling on my keyboard. I wonder what he looks like now. If he’s not hot… I can’t even think about it.

    P.S. That sux about your eyes. 🙁

  17. Sorry about the dry eyes and keratoconus. 🙁 But the winking? Hilarious. All of the patients in my office with Ker. wear gas perms. You’ll get used to them, really, and you’ll be surprised at how well you’ll be able to see. If they’re fit right, they should be comfy! Besides, you can clean them with cleaner and water! And store them dry!! LOL.

  18. I discovered my eyes are really dry when I had corrective eye surgery. The eye surgeon told me to take flax seed oil. It comes in capsules.

    You know he saw a girl, winked and she winked back and he was feeling really good because the girl was stacked.
