I have pink eye. "But isn't that something gross that four year-olds get?", you ask. Yes, it is, and apparently me. I also have a truly attractive head cold to match it. This after a 24 hour stomach bug. All this three days after I finally conquered bronchitis and a severe sinus infection. It's sort of like the lemon juice in my eye, salt on my wound, gravel in my knees of this pregnancy. My lips are cracked because I can't breathe with my nose and my hands are cracked because I wash them every five seconds. I don't want to be responsible for "that Christmas when we all had pink eye "(as heads turn toward me).

Thankfully after seeing the doctor visibly cringe when he looked at me, I got some eye drops that seem to be working. I've been in bed all day and am feeling a little better. I can't wait to see what I wake up with tomorrow! Chicken pox? Possibly. The mumps? Even better!


  1. Oh dear, Autumn. That sounds absolutely miserable! I hope you get better soon, and stay well for a long long time!

  2. What?! That does sound terrible! I sure hope you feel better soon and that that day in bed was the magical elixer of health. I'll be sending you good health vibes along with your Merry Christmas wishes.

  3. What a bummer! I hope you are feeling better!


  4. I had pink eye when I was on a recruiting trip at the University of Michigan!! I found out at Pearl Vision in the mall in Ann Arbor. It wasn't fun telling all the eager law students I couldn't shake their hands because I didn't want to give them pink eye!!!
