Swollen Eyes...

I wasn't able to go to work last Monday of this week because my eyes became swollen after, I guess, they were bitten by a minute insect. I thought it was just one eye that's going to swell, but then in few minutes, after scratching (again) lightly the side of my other eye, it also got infected. I put hot compress on both eyes expecting they will just go back to normal but to no avail. It was funny because I looked like I came from a boxing match and got punched in the eyes! LOL! I ended up staying at home and not been able to report to work.

I felt even more frustrated because when I woke up yesterday and took a look at my face in the mirror, the swelling still hasn't subsided. I felt like I was looking at someone else's face. My problem was, I couldn't go out because I was scared that people will wonder what happened to my face. Thank God it was a sunny Tuesday morning that I was able to wear my Bolle sunglasses to cover up my bulging eyes. I was supposed to see a doctor but I got lazy and decided to just take a rest. I was having a headache at the same time that's why I preferred to stay at home.

I finally went to work last night even though the swelling on my eyes hasn't completely subsided. My boss told me I should not have gone to work and was a bit worried about me. Well, I didn't want to have another day of unpaid leave since I'm not yet a regular employee at work. I guess I didn't have a choice but to be there. Besides, work really isn't stressful so I decided to be productive despite my situation.

Right now, I'm happy that the swelling finally healed. I placed hot compress on my eyes while I was at work and somehow had a few quick naps during my breaks. My eyes are now back to normal and my head doesn't hurt anymore. I'm glad I won't have to go to the doctor today!

I hope it was just an insect bite that caused the swelling. I didn't want it to be some kind of a food allergy because I don't want the ugly swelling to ever happen again. Besides, I don't want the allergies prevent me from eating the food that I love to eat! :P
