The pinkeye.

I took my daughter to the doctor last week because she was very congested.  Because the whites of her eyes were very white, I was in denial of any conjunctivitis.  The pediatrician said, "Yeah, she's got it.  And she's highly contagious.  So should you get it..."  Oh, I won't get that.  It's been a week and nothing.  
Yesterday, my eyes began to ache.  It must be allergies.  Denial continues.  I took a nap in the afternoon to awake with my eyes swollen shut.  I could not open them.  I flailed around to get to the bathroom for a warm washcloth.  I looked in the mirror.  It was worse than I thought.
