Of bulbous eye and woozy head

Was not that well over the weekend.. in fact, I was on MC yesterday :-(
My eye had an allergy reaction to some facial wipes I was using and the next day, I could not open my left eye properly and it was tearing uncontrollably.
I had a look at myself and my goodness! I sure gave myself a shocker!
My left eye was swollen, the white of my eye was yellow, jellied looking, swelling out from my sockets, whilst my iris, which was spared from the swelling, looked as though it had sunken into my socket..The combination? Freaking scary s**t! I've seen some eye infection pictures before but I must say, mine seems to be the scariest of the lot! eeewwwww
I was soon grasped with fear of losing my eye sight (yeah, when i panic i tend to think incoherently) and rushed to see a doctor. Most unfortunately, it was a Sunday, most of the clinics were not open. Finally, I found one clinic which was open and since it was still early in the morning, I was the only patient. The doctor took a look and proclaimed that my eye had an allergy reaction. It was quite a bad allergy actually, but doc was certain that it will be good by end of the day.
So was back home soon after, had brunch and took my medication. I didn't know that my med causes drowsiness too. Hence, with my left eye swollen, half of my face numb and puffy, and now with a woozy head..I drifted to sleep hoping that I'll be out of this nightmare soon..
