And by they I mean the little germ infested little children I work with. haha. I woke up several times Sunday night with an itchy crusted-shut right eye (pleasant, huh?). It was a bit better after I had showered, but I was pretty sure I knew what was going on….the dreaded PINK EYE!!
I decided to go into work so I could check with the nurse and see where I should go – I don’t have a Doctor out here yet. Of course my co-teacher screamed at me to get out of there and not touch anything. I headed to an urgent care where they determined it was indeed conjunctivitis and prescribed some antibiotic eye drops. They also told me that I would continue to be highly contagious for another day and I couldn’t return to work until Wednesday 😦
I HATE taking sick days when I am not actually sick!! Oh well, I decided to make the best of it. I went for a 6 mile run (with sunglasses so nobody would see my junky eye- haha), and I even managed to do a bit of arm, leg, and ab work. I also did some major cleaning and disinfecting of my apartment and treated myself to some frozen yogurt 🙂
Have you ever had pink eye?
