Let's be honest...I am not going to win any beauty contests, but maybe my baby girl will!? She better be damn cute for all that she is taking out of me!! Kidding, this eye disease isn't all her fault. But until she is out, there is nothing we can do about it. Either way it has to run its course. I just hope it doesn't take over my left eye too...I would like to SEE my baby when she is born!

Just my luck...of course it's still getting worse! For the past 2 weeks my left eye has been sore now too. It doesn't feel swollen (yet), compared to my right eye, but it definitely hurts to touch...only noticeable when I have to touch to wash my face morning and night. So at this point, both eyes are painful. I can no longer take the steroid eye drops so I am just taking Tylenol every 4hrs. It's hard to close them all the way so I have to tape my eye shut at night. I have to lube it up so it doesn't dry out. It's not necessity uncomfortable to sleep with the tape on, but it does hurt to rip it off in the morning. I have fogged out the right side of my glasses lens, so that I don't have to see double all day long. It's been really helpful for driving, sitting on my computer at work all day, and watching TV at night. I sometimes forget how bad my vision really is until I take my glasses off to go to bed. I am sick of wearing them though, because it draws more attention to the fact that my eye has issues...so everyone stares, not people at work anymore, but when I am out running errands, etc. I try to hide out at home as much as possible.
