I’m allergic to penicillin. Or amoxicillin. Or both.
So there I was, wailing about the stresses of being a student (tuition is a b****) when I felt a nagging sting in my right eye. Thinking nothing of it, I rubbed. And rubbed. And rubbed some more. Eventually, I began to rub both eyes — feeling a bothersome pain in the left as well.
Wait. Before I continue, you should know that I always have itchy eyes for some reason. I had actually just bought Visine for dry eyes, therefore — as far as I knew — there was nothing to be alarmed about.
But then I saw myself in the mirror.
It looked like both of my eyes had suddenly migrated to a different part of my face. My right eye was way up in New York while my left eye was down by Texas. It was an unforgettable sight. I looked like Quasimodo.
Anyway, I went to the hospital and got some drugs. They said they gave me 50 doses of Benadryl. I somehow don’t think that’s true seeing as I’m writing this post.
I am in the hospital bed as we speak. Still recovering.
Hopefully I’ll get to go home soon.
