Pitiful Site of the Day

Aug 10, 2005

Scott putting eyedrops in his eyes.

I really have no idea why, but I’d almost rather walk on hot coals than have to put eyedrops in my eyes.  All day my eyes have been burning, so I finally decided to try drops.  It’s really a pitiful site.  The minute the drop hits my eyeball I jump half way out of my chair like I’ve just poked a 12" needle into my retina. 

Is there counseling for this?

    That was a funny visual. Thank goodness you will never have to go to a Gynecologist!

    I was going to say that after reading that, my eyes feel like they are burning, but I really can’t top the last comment! ha

    I used to be like that when I was little. The therepy that my parents used was to have both of them sit on me and hold me down while one of them kept my eye open and put the drops in. It was very traumatic but I can do it myself now! I guess it is kind of like shock therepy.

    When I saw the title of your post in Bloglines, I thought you were going to tell us about (cite) a really pathethic web site. But, apparently, it’s the sight of you putting in eye drops that is so pitiful.
    Here’s what I try with my kids (you’ll have to get your wife to help you): lie down flat and have your wife put the eye drop in the inside corner of your eye. Then just turn your head slightly so the drop runs towards the middle of your eye.
    I bet your wife laughs at you when you jump, so she might have a hard time getting the drop in the right place. [grin]
