SHELL SHOCKED.

I feel like a soldier who has gone through a hellish war. Excuse any typos if any, as I am typing with one giant gauze patch over my right eye and my one good left eye doing all the seeing here, but the right upper eyelid stye turned into a clogged heavy painful itchy cyst that was not going away with my home treatment which made for a pretty miserable weekend and so yesterday afternoon the eye specialist injected, cut, pulled, prodded, and drained my poor upper right eyelid accompanied by such PAIN (even after numbing) which I have never felt in my entire life and would not wish on any of my enemies. Going to the dentist is a joke compared to what I had to go through. I don't think I've ever grunted in such painful fashion nor gripped the armrests so fiercely as I did yesterday afternoon. Yes, blood was running down my right cheek.

My eyelid shall now heal as it should, and I'm praying the worst is truly over. I'm behind on so many of your blogs, and I apologize.

I've been to hell and back it seems...

wow, now I feel bad about my earlier comment. You did have a mutating elephant man thing going on.
Sorry about all the pain and suffering. Geez, makes me cringe just thinking about it all.

Oh, this sounds awful but it is a good thing that you went and had it taken care of before it got any worse. Amazing how these things come up out of nowhere (or so it seems). My friend Zack had the same thing done in September and his description pretty much matches yours. But the good news is that it is all behind him and he healed. Sending good thoughts your way.

Paul said...

Wow... that's not good! I hope you get better soon!

Sweet Jesus Will! What a nightmare, sorry for your pain and suffering.

Scot said...

I can hear those noises you made in my mind right now.....
Sorry about the eye; it's not fun, and judging by abother friend that had on recently, expect to see a big red spot for quite a while still. I wish I could be more encouraging, but at least the puss is all out now and shuold start to feel better

Sorry about the eye thing dude. My dad had that happen to him and I guess I still don't understand how to prevent those things if they are even preventable.

Post a picture!

Oh dear God...I threw up a little in my mouth imagining having to go through that! It seems everyone is squeemish about eye stuff but I think my aversion is probably over the top. Excuse me...must...get...to...bathroom...

My poor, dear, fake-brother-in-law...may you heal quickly and painlessly!!!

a virus has no eyes. sounds like maybe a staph eye infection? When I read about that MRSA staph spreading thru the gay community, it reminds me of 1982. Blame it on the Haitians?

WAT said...

Todd: Yes, most cringing.

Gary: Poor Zacky poo, and poor me too, thanks for the good thoughts handsome man.

Paul: Thanky Paul u supremely nice man you.

M-Filer: "I'm not that ill, bad moments come, but they go..."

Scot: Pus NOT puss

Durante: I found out two good ways to prevent this horror: warm towel compresses on each eye every day 10-15 minutes! Or, Q-tip wash the each eye closed with a bit of Baby Shampoo. Washes out dirt, bacteria, and bad oils.

Darci: T'is y I missed FUEL Monday night and y I was so pissed I couldn't sing karaoke.

Bill: No staph thank God or else I'd have no eye left by now.

Gavin Elster said...

alice said...

Yikes.... sounded like a horrendous experience. Sucks to be you, right now, eh???

I hope you're feeling tip-top soon, without any lasting effects. Do what your dr. tells you, sweetie!!
