There's something in my eye.
2 days ago i was absent-mindedly rubbing my left eye when i felt a small little lump on the corner of my eyelid. I didn't give it much thought thinking that it could be just a zit. However later on at night when i mentioned it to my sister, she proceeded to examine it and when she suddenly exclaimed at that apparently visible lump, i knew it was time to go "uh-oh".
We spent some ten minutes speculating about it and now that i looked back, it was all so comical. My sister even offered to accompany me to the hospital, in case it is something serious. deadly. I freaked out a little and called rudy, whining, "what if it's some tumour??", while in my mind i was thinking, "would i go blind??", "I want to live til 70!", "I want to get married and have children!", "I want to kiss my boyfriend with my eyes open!".
so yesterday i went to YIH to uncover the suspense. So after waiting for 45 minutes together with some 101 other freshies waiting to get their medical checkups, making the whole clinic so darn congested, I was told ... that it was just a cyst. yayness! And the fact that it had a medical term which sounds like one of the seven wonders of the world in Rome, actually made it sound rather cool, when in fact it is just due to a blocked gland of some sorts.
Got some antibiotic eyedrop and cream and i should be sorted out in no time, eventhough the doctor said it may get a little larger before subsiding.
Today i spoke to kko abt it and she said she got it before too, only that hers involved the need for the doctor to flip her eyelid open and yank the cyst out with a scalpel after injecting her eyelid with anaesthetic.
should i like panic now?????
