Catbag's Eye Infection- Update

[Post New]by catbag8717 on Sep 17, 14 12:38 AM
Mods, I request that you do not delete this, as people have been asking about my eye infection, so here's an update for you all.

I developed conjunctivitis in my right eye on Sunday. On Monday it became so bad that my eye was stuck shut, I since received drops for it, and have been taking those, which means the right eye is improving.

However, today, my left eye became infected, producing similar results to the right eye. My left eye was stuck shut this morning, and was quite bad.
I am still taking the drops, but there's no telling when the infection will clear up, so could Daxadillion please continue his/her takeover for me?

Until I do return, happy gaming.

Catbag

Hi Catbag

I'm so sorry to hear that your conjunctivitis is getting worse rather than better.

Of course I will continue to make the posts on your behalf.

Take care

Dax (aka Susie)

Hoping you feel better soon, Catbag. Your absence from the forums is missed. Doesn't seem the same without you.

I'm so sorry to hear about your eye infection. I hope you go to a Eye Specialist soon! Please! I have seen common eye infection become very serious...very fast.

Please know you are missed! And we look forward to your speedy recovery and return. It's just not the same with out you!

Take care and I look forward to your return! Blessing with a fast healing!

Catbag.....
how very worrying.....usually conjunctivitis clears up quickly and does not travel to the other eye.
Check around for something new that might be getting used in your household....
a new laundry agent perhaps.

Wash your hands often.
Don't rub your eyes...
and see your doctor!

We will miss you and look forward to your getting well again....soon.

Oh, dear, sweet catbag.

I have suffered conjunctivitis myself. So have my children and it's horrible and frightening. Now that it's traveled to the other eye, please see your doctor again. You may need a specialist. FYI: Same thing happened to my son in boot camp and it lasted about 10 days he said.

Please, please, please feel better soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you daily.

Listen to you doctor and get better soon.

Sorry to hear about your infection catbag, hope you recover soon. Eyes are too important to fool around with, see a specialist asap. Another good place to stay in touch with other gamers is pondfriends, lots of former fishies hang out there. Take care of yourself! And a big thank you to the mods for allowing this thread to survive.

What a sweetie to be going through all that and think of us (I don't post much, but I appreciate your threads). I once had conjunctivitis and it's not fun, even when it's only in one eye! Hope you're all better soon!

All I can think of is Bob Costa's eyes during the Sochi Olympics and how bad they looked so I feel for you. Please take care.

Get to an eye specialist as soon as possible. I know from experience that you don't mess around with anything to do with your eye sight. I was blinded by a cataract surgeon getting bacteria into my eye during cataract surgery. There was absolutely nothing in this world to prepare you for all of a sudden being blind in one eye. I'll be blind in my right eye for the rest of my life! Make sure you let your Dr. know it's an emergency and don't depend on an ER, they don't have the specialist you need.

Catbag,

Here are a dozen flowers to cheer you up and to remind you that we're thinking of you. I also sent up a prayer for you.

Get better SOON and hurry back to us.

Hey catbag8717

I'm really sorry to hear you're dealing with this! We do hope you get better soon so you can return to the forums

I do need to leave a reminder here, though, to please try to keep this thread related to the game, as stated in the Forum Rules, specifically:

Make sure your posts are constructive and add to the conversation on the forums. Posting just to "level up" or "bump" discussions is considered SPAM. Posts that are not game related will be removed.

It's great to see a lot of support and concern expressed from our forum members, but please keep within the primary focus of the forums as much as possible.

Hey Catbag,

Hope you feel better and are back with us soon. I've never had conjunctivitis but "suffered" through it with both of my kids when they were in high school, so I know how uncomfortable it can be.

Know that your friends are thinking of you and sending you all sorts of positive thoughts to help you get better quickly. You are missed when you don't show up!!
