Baking had to take a back seat yesterday. I have gotten used to Fridays as my baking day, but the discomfort on my left eye was so bothersome that I decided to put it off. This is the second time in a span of almost two weeks that I’m experiencing that gritty feeling on my left eye. This time around, the good old reliable Visine eye drop is not the solution thus, I decided to finally book an appointment with my Ophthalmologist. Luckily, I got an afternoon appointment today, which means, this Saturday’s trek around town will be postponed.
As you know, appointments with Doctors are not really reliable. I don’t understand why they even bother to set out a time, when in reality, the time that is set is not really followed. Having been a patient of the same Ophthalmologist for years, I’m very much aware of the ‘beat’ in that office. Since, I don’t think I can make use of my eyes and read a good book while waiting, I guess, having my husband to chat with, will be the next best option to keep me from getting too bored while waiting.
Honestly, I’m a little bit nervous. I really don’t know what and how this gritty feeling on my left eye came about. I only have one pair of eyes, and if there is any part of my body that I’m afraid of getting messed up – – that’s got to be my eyes.
