I'm Taking The Red Eye


Sorry peeps, I'm not talking about overnight airline flights here. The red eye I'm talking about involves my actual seeing organ. I've got some weird bursting blood vessel syndrome going on in my eyeballs. See exhibits A and B.

It all started about six months ago. Every few days I'll feel a pressure behind my eye and then it turns blood red. It's never both eyes at once. One day it'll be the left, then it'll clear for a while before the right eye starts its course. For the most part, it's just slightly uncomfortable. Except right before it happens, and that's because the pressure behind my eye causes a headache.

I haven't yet been to the doctor to see what's up. It's not because I'm scared of the work doctors do. It's because I'm scared of the financial drain it takes on my wallet. Someday I'll quit being stubborn and have it checked out. Until then, I'll just walk around looking like I'm half stoned.
