Bacterial conjunctivitis tends to occur in one eye and may accompany an ear infection.
I am definitely tired of being ill.
The world does look different when seen through a red eye. Both literally and figuratively. Not only does it feel like something is embedded in my eye, but I am sensitive to bright light, and my daughter is afraid to look at my eye. I am apparently a type of vampire who doesn’t sparkle.
I have to rely on my immune system to take care of it. I am too cash-strapped to go to the doctor and get medication that may not work anyway.
And my health insurance only covers things that won’t actually kill me and there is no chance that I will get.
So for now, I live with one evil eye and one eye that is almost good.
