As for me, I thought I was responding to the stress by having a recurrence of my herpetic eye disease. I was wrong. What I actually had was some little piece of schmutz in my eye, which had to be flushed out in the e.r., and which left me with a scratched cornea. Consequently, I've been pretty fucking blind, and have missed the last two days of work (I tried to work yesterday, but was simply too photo sensitive -- even wearing my sunglasses, the light was still unbearably painful). I sent unixd0rk out to buy me an eyepatch yesterday (anarqueso: maybe I'll have to join pro_scurvy now), and he came over last night and just generally cheered me up -- we ate Vegan Crack, we listened to my Gilda Radner record, and it just all made me feel so much less tense.
So now today I can see a bit better (obviously, as I'm able to look at a computer screen -- couldn't do that yesterday). I have another eye doctors' appointment at noon, and then back to The Co-op at two. They've been incredibly cool as far as allowing me the space to deal with all of the disasters I've been dealing with over these last few days. Yar.
madamjolie: I saw you tagged me for that thing and I will get to it, I just need shit to calm down a bit more first.
