I called the doctor yesterday and they made me an appointment for the afternoon. I proceeded to explain my symptoms and I was interrupted with.
Nurse: Darlin', you don't need to come in, we will call a prescription in for you. You have pink eye and you are highly contagious.
Me: I have to go to work.
Nurse: Sugar, you ARE NOT going to work.
Me: When will I be able to return to work.
Nurse: Once ALL the symptoms are gone.
Well, I would hardly call this a vacation. I was off Monday and Tuesday anyway, but I may not be able to go in Wednesday either. I work directly with patients and I rely on my eyes for my job. So I am quarantined. I am trying to be extra careful so I don't infect everyone else. Every time I touch my face I must wash my hands. Do you realize how much you actually touch your face? Not only that but I have been walking around cleaning everything I touch, (Here is a shameless product plug.), by using Clorox Greenworks Natural Biodegradable Cleaning Wipes.
I was given these eye drops that burn and put a constant bad taste in my mouth which makes my food taste funny. I couldn't even enjoy my Cheetos! Chad is constantly making fun of me. Singing stupid songs..."In your eyes, the whites are red, your eyes..." (Peter Gabriel), texting me "Your eyes look like shit!", making remarks "How do I adjust the red eye?"and not looking me in the eyes because "it hurts his eyes". The bright side is, I get the bed all to myself!
Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to go motorboat Chad's pillow!
