poor me...

I got some sort of insect bite on my upper eyelid while I was grooming my horse. Now its so swollen than I can only open my eye halfway and I look terrible. I can't see properly because it distorts my vision. I have to take some Phenergan but it will make me sleepy so I have to go to bed now so I don't fall asleep at my desk. My brother and Dad laughed at me :( not in a mean way but still... aarrgghhh!!!

sorry bout this rant everyone! Help yourself to some of my chocolate for reading this!

GIVE ME THE CHOCOLATE~!

I hate when stuff like that happens. How many times have you looked in the mirror today? I always go back about every five minutes to see if it looks better yet when stuff like that happens to me...

Get better Lauren!!! Don't think about your dad & bro too much, men are genetically bound to laugh at things like this!

Make yourself a cup of camomile tea and put the cooled tea bag on your eye. No kidding!

Thanks everyone! Its less swollen today but I still can't see properly. My eye is watering a bit and that makes everything blurry Ah well, there's always tomorrow.... I hope its better then because I have some appointments tomorrow and I will look a sight! lol

yeah its way better now - you can't notice it at all unless you look extremely closely. Its just a little itchy in the corner where the insect bite was... I wanna go out and groom my mare again but lol I'm worried it will happen again! This is the second time its happened! Only last time it didn't swell up even half as much.
