Everything is fucked up at the moment. I have an infection in my right eye that I picked up (probably) from a fly that flew into it last Saturday. I went to the doctor on Wednesday, when it started getting painful, and he proscribed antibiotic drops for me. I had to go back on Friday morning when most of the lower half of the eye turned red, and the pain became serious. This time he proscribed steroid drops. Later on Friday, it got serious enough that we took a trip to Moorgate Eye Hospital, and a two hour wait. I have to tell you, that two hours was the most uncomfortable time I've had in a long time, if not ever. The pain was like having needles stuck through my eye, and into the back of my head. I was also very photophobic, to the point that I was wearing sunglasses anywhere that there was light. The doctor spent a lot of time shining bright lights into my eyes, and asking questions about what I was feeling. "Pain, you fool", I nearly screamed at several points. It got so bad, that I had to vomit at one point. So he proscribed me oral antibiotics, antibiotic drops and lubricant drops, all to be taken four times a day. Today, it has gotten a bit more red, but the swelling in the lid has definitely gone down. The pain is still there though, but I've taken some pain killers, so I'm starting to feel stoned now. See what I mean by fucked up?

Crazy work at the moment. I just finished up a major project, which got so bad that I had to be in the office until 5am one morning last week. Still, its all done and dusted now, and I can get back to building my uber-website. Anna got her first essay back from uni yesterday... she got graded an A. Surprise surprise ;-)
