oh, don't look at me now
Everyone has em.
Some are allergic to seafood, nuts, milk...
and the list goes on and on. Yet, I know there are some people out there who think they are not allergic to anything...But let me tell you...genetics can be a absolute, pain in the ass, mother****ing BITCH !
All the rage now because as I am typing this, I am in so much pain because of my allergies!! ...which I ONCE though I did not have a problem with. The allergies, among all places it could choose to strike, among ALLLL, it had to be the place where people look at the most....The eyes! Oh tell me Lord WHYYYY???
It started little by little at first. My ears and neck got sensitive to accessories. I was so broken hearted when i had to say goodbye to my collection of necklaces and earrings...Then I had a problem with the heat. I would erupt in rashes if my body got all hot. THANK GOD the rashes do not itch!!!
And now the latest allergy which "mutated" from this had to effect my eyelids!!! and this time it itches like crazy! Little mosquito bites would appear and if aggravated, it would swell and make me look like I just had an eye surgery gone wrong.
But OK, I sucked it up...beared with it... I got smarter on how to deal with it. But nothing would have prepared me for what happened today. I was not feeling well so I took a painkiller and went to sleep. I woke up with a horrible itch on both my eyes... My brains kicked in, and i dashed to the mirror... To my horror, I was not staring at myself, but at face which looked like the hunchback of NotreDame! Gahhhh!!!
I piled cold packs on my eyes, and it stopped the insane itch but not the swelling... As I am typing this I feel like I have the asian-ness of asian, chinese eyes. (as if my eyes were not small enough already) The bridge of my nose even disappeared!!! I went to the doctor looking like Lady Gaga with super black tinted sunglasses on..at night, YES, on a busy Monday night.
The clinic was packed. I unfortunately had to make a run to the toilet which was at the far end of the clinic. That few seconds walk to the toilet was like a runway with hungrily, bored audience and I became the centre of attention immediately. You could see the transformation of their looks, all bored waiting to see the doctor and as I walked in.. the raised heads.. the children with confusion in their eyes making way for me.... ARHHHH!!
Like I said when I just wrote this post, I.Am.In.So.Much.Pain. so I better get some sleep now. To the readers out there, be careful of what you say or think you know. Especially things related to your body. You can never be too sure when your body starts to change. Whatever it is, suck it in, stop sulking, and adapt to it!
