One mosquito bit on the eyelid + an allergy to mosquito bites = no ability to open my eye for three hours!

Basically I woke up at 6am because my eye was throbbing and itching like crazy. Took 3 allergy pills at the same time (I know, I know, maybe not a great thing to overdose on them, but really, I had to do something!) and waited. Three hours later and many attempts to bathe my eye and I finally managed to open it.

The bonus of the whole experience? I was absolutely covered in itchy bites, they are just everywhere, and now none of them itch or are swollen. I guess that's what 3 pills worth of antihistamines will do for you. Yay for pharmacology.
