This Could Get Interesting...

So, yesterday, I survived the first Class Party. Great. I go home, and suddenly, my left eye feels "weird.". So I look in the mirror, and it is sort of red. Yuck. I take out my contacts, put my antihistamine drops in, and hold a cold, wet washcloth to my eye for 15 minutes. Guess what?

Nothing. It didn't get better.

I'd taken my Claritin D 24-hour pills that morning--what was going on? By the time Hubby came home from the airport, my eye was REALLY red. And this morning, BOTH my eyes are now red, and I have sinus pressure. It's not painful, but it's there.

But I have faithfully been taking my allergy medicine!

I guess it's time to see an allergist. I think I might be allergic to a bunch of things. And I suspect one of them might be down. We have a down comforter and pillows, and it seems when I get close to them I get the red eyes. Which, frankly, doesn't make sense because we've had a down comforter for about seven years. I know, huh?
I am taking the comforter to the dry cleaners this weekend and using different pillows, so we won't have any down on our bed for a few days. I am going to see if things clear up. In the meantime, I look like I either A) am a ravenous vampire or B) have a raging case of pinkeye or C) haven't slept in 40 days and 40 nights. Outstanding.

I can't wear my contacts, so it's glasses today. I think I scared Thing Four because when he woke up he looked at me and recoiled, and said "Mom, your eyes are scary!"

*sigh*

Why me?

Have you been outside alot? Mold from the decaying leaves and the rain this week is an allergy KILLER. Don't toss the down pillows yet.
