It Can Only Get Better From Here

The year 2012 ended and the year 2013 began on a really down note. 

I came home from FL on the 23rd feeling a little run down.  I only sat down to eat lunch on the 24th and by the afternoon of the 25th, I had a full on head cold.  But I had zero time to do anything about it until about 9PM.  So basically I ran my body into the ground.  Also on the 23rd, bestie Florida sent a text to say that Godson had pink eye.  As in, an hour after Florida and Godson dropped me off at the airport.

You see where this is going, right?

So the 26th I have zero plans.  And I give myself the entire day to just be still and quiet in bed. 

But instead of feeling better, I was feeling worse.  I think I let my cold go too long without doing anything (I mean, no sitting, no hot tea, no Advil, nothing).  A little something was becoming a bigger something.

And then my right eye hurt.  Really really badly. 

And then it turned magenta.

And then I was just in pain all over.

Dad had to drive me to the doctor.  Where the nurse wanted to give me an eye test.  So I have no glasses on.  I am pretty blind out of my right eye as it is wretched with magenta pink eye.  I can't see more than a few feet out of either eye without my dang glasses.  And nurse I-insist-you-attempt-to-do-this-eye-test-for-like-10-minutes-and-act-rude-when-you-fail-it-because-hello-you-are-flippin-blind-at-the-moment just cannot get over the fact that I am unable to see. 

Anyway, I acquired drugs.  I never go get drugs so you know this was BAD.

I was told I was going to be better shortly and no longer contagious in 24 hours.

In 24 hours I was worse.

In 48 hours, I was having a full on panic attack (on the floor in a ball crying because I was in so much pain and blind and coughing and dying...I knew I had the plague and death was around the corner) because the right eye was still miserable and the left eye was also now magenta and in so much pain. 

I went back for more meds.  New drugs because the first batch did nothing.  The doctor was pretty in awe of how bad it was.  How special to wow your doctor with the depth of your misery!

It took about two weeks to completely get rid of the cold and pink eyes. 

So that's how I ended and started my years.  Boo!

But the great news is that 2013 can really only get better!  Even though I had a rough start and feel a little behind the curve, I am getting back on track.  And I am going to do some fun things this year.  None of which include colored eyeballs!

And that is the recap on why I have been rather scarce around Blogville.

Oh Dear!!! That sounds simply horrible! I am so sorry. I am trying to take vitamin d3 and elderberry as so much is going around and we did not get flu shots. I hope 2013 is a GREAT year for you!

What a terrible way to end 2012 and to begin 2013. The sickest I've ever been was a cold / pink eye mix. Blah! I hope you have a great weekend now that you are feeling bette.
