It Ain't Pretty


If you are squeamish about eyeballs and blood then this post is not for you!!

Don't scroll down and don't look.

Cuz I guarantee it's not pretty.

Not to worry though, I'm ok.  
It's just a bursted blood vessel, no harm, no foul.

It doesn't hurt now, but was a tiny bit painful the first two days.  
It is scary looking though and it kinda freaks me out when I happen by a mirror.  And....people do look at me weird too.  

I went to the doctor, just to be sure I didn't have a problem with my blood pressure.  It was a little high but not enough to cause this.  Instead it is likely stress and eyestrain due to the fact that I was on the computer Sunday for five hours straight handling things that an Interim Rescue Chair has to handle.
At least I am decorated in Red for the Holiday season!!!


  1. Oh dear! I hope your eye heals up really soon. How scary. And to think this happened while you were doing such good work!

  2. Oh Karen, I hope that your eye will be OK very soon. No pun intended but it almost looks like the eye of a blood hound. That's scary. I had no idea that being on the computer for 5 hours straight would do this to your eye. Take care of yourself. Hugs. JB

  3. Aacck, ewwww, etc. Hope it feels better than it looks!

    I, too, hope it feels better than it looks because it looks god awful! I hope it clears up soon.
    Hugs :)

  5. Oh Karen,
    You are ready for Christmas with the red eye and looks like you have green eyes! LoL! My Mom had that happen several times and it really does look bad. She is on blood thinner medication which always made it look worse. Hope it clears up soon!
    Take it easy on the computer if you can...... too much at a time gives me headaches.

  6. It's gross isn't it!!! Doc said it would clear up in about 10 days :-(

  7. That had to be super scary for you. I'm glad it looks worse than it feels though. Too bad it didn't happen around halloween, you could have used it as a costume prop!

  8. Good heavens, I'd have freaked out too and headed straight for the doctor's office like you did. Hope it heals fast for you.


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
