RE: Doctors

My case of “Vampire Eye” was not getting any better, in fact it seemed to be getting actually worse, so yesterday I decided to get myself a check-up appointment at the Doctors. I was in luck and managed to get myself a 9am appointment.  So not long to wait to get some answers…..right?


Vampire Eye

I am suffering from the medical condition “Vampire Eyes” again. “What is Vampire Eye?“you ask, Well you should read some of the earlier blog posts where its mentioned in detail.  OK! I’m nice, I’ll  give a quick re-cap for the newer readers.


A weird eye infection that causes the eye infected to glow red, be extremely sensitive to sunlight, spend all day trying to close, and all night trying to open.

So if you’re wondering where I have been recently, I’m hiding in the dark avoiding all sources of light, like for example monitors.

Vampiric Eye.


Beware The Vampires Eye

Once again this year I have been struck down by the curse of the “Red Eye” or Allergic Conjunctivitis as some may call it.

This is the sixth or seventh time this has happened to me this year, and all but one of the times in my left eye.  By a similar coincidence they always come about after a warm day when we have the windows, or doors in the office open. I must be allergic to something new about, I must look into that.

Or! and this is a new theory I have come up with, My eye is slowly turning Vampiric. Well I’ve always had the natural fangs, and a slight loathing of bright sunlight. Now I have an eye that refuses to stay open during the day, and almost causes me to fall to my knees in pain if I go out into sunlight, Yet as soon as the sun sets and darkness falls it will not let me close it. Any attempt to close my eye for lets say “sleep” causes my eye to start watering until it swells in its socket causing pain against its eyelids, and water to pour from it none stop like from a tap.

Its very weird I tell you…. I am turning into a vampire….

Watch this space….

Chaos Seems To Follow Me.

I finally gave in to peer pressure and went to see the doctor about my eye.  So a quick in/out to get it confirmed I have conjunctivitis and need drops, get a prescription, and sorted, all under 10 minutes.

So I’m standing outside the door to the doctors, prescription in hand with a decision to make.

  1. Go to my normal Chemists (When I say normal, I’d not been there in 20 odd years)  Which means a drive to the local village, park wherever I can, walk to Chemists and collect my drops.
  2. Walk the 3 paces from my doctors door to the Chemists next door.

So I settle on the next door  Chemists, Wander in and hand over my prescription.  The chemist wandered off to her terminal

<tappity> <tappity> <tappity>

Chemist 1: “You’ve never been here before!

Me: “I never been ill before

So she starts to enter my details into the computer

<tappity> <tappity> <tappity>

Chemist 1: “How do you get to the next bit of the address, its wont go there?

Chemist 2: “err you hit that button, then type there

<tappity> <tappity> <tappity>

Chemist 3: “you just  move the mouse over there!

Chemist 1: “oh the mouse!

So they finally get my details entered into the computer, print off the labels, and come to give me my drops.

Chemist 1: “Here you go, sorry but your address printed out wrong, and you cant really read it”

Me: “err, its ok, I know where i live!

so. Doctors = 10 minutes, Chemists = 30minutes

Is it just me? Or does everyone else have these same problems?

Red Eye

I have spent the last few weeks suffering for Conjunctivitis.

A couple of weeks?” I hear you ask.

Well, The first week as it started getting worse I was convinced i’d just scratched my eye, making it inflamed. I was wrong, as my doctor told me withing 5 minutes of me finally going to get medical help.

Its an interesting experiance, If i close my good eye, its like I’m wandering about in my own fog of blurryness making everything look fluffier, Ok Driving has become a much more extreame sport, but you have to take the good with the bad.

The only thing left is to wait for the results of my co-workers poll, who are trying to work out if i now look more like the terminator, or an infected zombie with my one bright red eye.

I cant let you see that Dave.
