I woke up on Thursday, attempted to open my eyes and felt a stabbing pain in my eye. I knew straight the way I had scratched my cornea (it's happened before, the downfall of vainly wearing contact lenses). I tried to open the unaffected eye, but for some reason this hurt my right eye as well. So I had no option but to not open either. I lay in bed for 2 days. Doing nothing. Hell. Pure hell. I HATE doing nothing. I hate relying on others to help me move downstairs, or get changed, or eat.

But I learnt a lot, I feel like I have a better understanding of how frustrating it must be to be blind. I am so grateful for sight. Today my eye feel a little sore but I can open it. Massive relief.

On better news I GOT INTO THE UNIVERSITY I WANTED TO! WOO *runs around the room screaming*. AND they gave me a low condition to get in, which is a huge surprise since it's in the top 3 universities for the course I want to do.

My weight has stayed the same, which I'm surprised about since I have done absolutely nothing for 2 days.

Lots of love to you all! xxx

WOOHOO for school! :D Ha, I'm such a hypocrite. I complain nonstop about school, almost as much as I obsess over the scale, but in reality I know I need it, and that I'm so very fortunate for the opportunity I have to improve myself (and put myself into unending debt). And OUCH!! I scratched my cornea once and freaked out that I couldn't open my eye for all the pain it caused...went to the optometrist where they told me I had two tiny ulcers on my cornea (sounded freakin' serious) and that it was a good thing I came in or it could have gotten a ton worse and eventually caused my entire eyeball to rupture inside there or something ridiculous like that...God, it sucked. Glad to hear you're doing a little better! <3

Hey hun, congrats on getting into the uni you want to go to. You must be so happy about that. I'm sorry to hear about your eye and I hope it's feeling a little better now.
