Scary, yet entertaining, eyeball experience!

This morning, I had my 1st scary experience with my contacts. I've only been wearing contacts for 5 years, (which is a good while, but not as long as most people have been wearing them).

Now, first let me start out and say that the day before yesterday, I was wearing them, as usual and the left one was kinda irritating my eye and I thought I had something in it like a piece of dirt or an eyelash, so I kept moving it around thinking I could get it out, and to no avail. All damn day, it was irritating the hell outta me.

At the end of the day, when I was taking them out I realized that the contact was ripped, so by me moving it around my eyeball ALL day long, I was actually doing more damage.

So, the next day, (are you guys keeping up here?) I wasn't even able to put in my contacts, my eyes were closing when I was trying, like they were yelling at me, "Hell no bitch, we aren't letting you do that to us again!"
So I had to wear my glasses to work, which I HATE wearing. I only wear them when my eyes hurt, I'm sick or I'm out of contacts. People always compliment on them and tell me how "distinguished" I look and all that mess, but whatever. I hate it. I think I look like a big, stupid dork.

Anyway!

Today, I think, "Okay I gave my eyes a day off, that's long enough, they can suck it up, today they are wearing a new pair of contacts."
I get out a new pair, and I always put in the right one in first (because everyone knows that the right side is first no matter what it is, it's an OCD thing ;)) and it's irritating me, ugh. So I take it out, wash it with some solution and try again.

Uh oh! I couldn't get it out of my eyeball. I could feel it; I could tell something was there, but I couldn't get it out.

I may or may not have turned into a bit of a psycho drama queen at this point. I almost started crying, but realized that would've made it way worse, so I had to force myself to calm down, which is a tough feat for me because I'm an uppity person as it is.

So, here I am, I had just stepped outta the shower, sitting naked on the sink in the bathroom, freaking the hell out. I was devising my plan to call into work because I am going to have to make an emergency appointment to go in to see an optometrist.

Once I'm calmed down enough, I decide to lift my eyelid, and THERE IT IS! My contact has gone up above my actual eyeball. I had to literally fish my contact out of my eye because it was starting to go behind my eyeball.

It was terrifying.

I'm SUCH a paranoid person, I've had a mirror out all day long making sure that my contacts are still intact.

I don't know about you, but to me, this is a sign that I'm a candidate for lasik, am I right?!

I hate when stuff like that happens. Sometimes if you look up or whichever direction the contact is, the colored part of your eye will actually help pick up the contact and move it back... sometimes unfortunately you just have to dig it out which freaks me out too :)
