I have %&*#*#% Pink Eye! As freaking if, I haven't had it for like 20 years since I was little. Woke up and thought I was blind lol. Sucks bum, I can't work cuz my work wants me out of here, it's highly contagious.

Doc couldn't even tell me WHY this would happen. I don't remember how I got it when I was little.

That sucks. I got it back 2005 before I was married with child. Who knows where I had picked it up. I had worked with some ladies the night before at a parttime job and called each of them to let them know cause they all had kids.

Pink eye is essentially getting fecal matter in your eye, from what I've read/heard. I HATE it. My kids and DH have had it. I haven't had it in years. It SUCKS. I hope it gets better for you quickly.

Blondie, that's true, but it's not the only way. Apparently it can be bacterial, viral, chemical or even an allergic reaction. My doc told me people get it sometimes after a respiratory infection, cold sore throat/etc. and I just got over bronchitis and a sinus infection.

Uh, it seems better now, thanks ladies, it's just really itchy now.

Yep, I got 2 pink eyes at the same time the first time I was working at the daycare center. I had a sinus infection and was trying to wait it out before running for the antibiotics, and I was so clogged up my eyes got the mess too. So then I ended up with antibiotics for sinusitis AND gooey antibiotics to put into my eyes. And I was pregnant. lmao Ah, fun times.
Moral of the story is, just get the dang antibiotics when ya need them.

Glad you're feeling better though. Pink eye is torture.
