Okay yesterday my one eye felt like it had an eyelash or something in it and I kept pulling the lid down trying to see what was in my eye. It was really bothering me and to make matters worse I had an ear ache, sinus infection and headache to boot. I thought I might just be tired because I've been traveling on the road for about a month on and off. I woke up today and both of my eyes were glued shut! I've never had an eye infection of any sort that I can recall so this freaked me out. I went to the doc, he took my temperature and asked me if I was feeling real bad, I said no, just my eyes and my sinus's are bothering me. He said you have a temp of 102. I had no idea! Then he said I have conjunctivitis (pink eye) and that I'm highly contagious and that I could not go to work tonight or the night or so after. He said that usually a sinus or another virus infection go hand in hand with pink eye and put me on meds for both things. I can't touch my eyes or my face, have to wash my hands before and after I put the eye drops in my eyes and I think I'm going insane due to the fact that one of my pet peeves is having the feeling that something is in my eyes and not being able to do anything about it. How did I get this? I've not been in contact with anyone who has pink eye that I'm aware of. Doc said I could have had it 2 days before physical signs showed up and to throw away all my eye makeup as it is most likely contaminated. my eye makeup cost a small fortune so I'm really bummed about that. Has anyone else had pink eye before? Any tips to help me try to stop focusing on my eyes and to keep my mind occupied on something else? I feel bad because my husband has most likely been exposed and now he has to take the meds too. I'm in the process of trying to disinfect things in the house and I'm spraying lysol like mad. Changed the pillow cases and bed linens because they said I could reinfect myself if I don't do that on a daily basis. Could I have gotten this while out on my travels at a restaurant or rest area? I feel so ick. I went to drop off my doctors statement at my place of business and my boss put up his hands in a skull and crossbones manner and said he didn't need to see the note and to get out and come back when I'm better. (My hands were clean I'm carrying this liquid hand sanitizer with me in my purse) I feel like I've got some deadly disease with the way people are avoiding me like the plague. Should I move to a lepar colony?
