If I Can Read This, I'm Too Close.

Not at all to my surprise, I find I'm having considerable difficulty properly applying my eye goop. I have not always succeeded on the first try at getting the stuff into my eye instead of onto my face, it always seems to come out in big old globs instead of in a nice uniform ribbon the way it's supposed to. And I've already managed to poke myself in the eye with the tube twice, which cannot possibly be conducive to healing.

I've figured out what a large portion of the problem is, though. If I get close enough to the mirror that I can clearly see what I'm doing, I'm too close to have hardly any room to maneuver between the mirror and my eye. You know, I don't usually think about it much, because I've had it since I was six, but extreme myopia really kind of sucks.

  1. Ah... eye ointment. Just went through that horror for an infection. What are you using. I don't have my tube with me but it was said to have "rare" side effects that included easy bruising and bleeding and I showed signs of both.. Yup, bleeding around the finger nails and easy bruising. Had a big black bruise on my palm between my thumb and wrist. For the record, I rarely bruise and show signs.

  2. Eep! No, mine's just lubricant. No medicine, so no side effects, other than the fact that for a few seconds after using it, it kind of looks like I'm gazing at the world through a layer of vaseline. Mainly because I am.

  3. And everyone looks like a female love interest from Star Trek:TOS for just a few seconds as well?
