The Sties That Blind

This morning my eyes started to get irritated and by 8:00am the right one was red, inflamed, itchy, watering. I pulled out my contacts, but that didn't help. I thought I had come into contact with something that I was allergic to. I repeatedly rinsed my eye throughout the day until I got home. I noticed a white bump on the lid in the corner of my eye. After a call to Mom and a search on the Internet, I realized it is a stye. Warm compresses, saline rinses, and glasses for me the next couple of days. Oh the drama, the trauma, the burning!
