(Irritated) Eye Of The Tiger - Update

I've successfully avoided going to the doctor over my case of pink eye.  I've avoided it because I can't afford it.  I pay $200 in monthly insurance premiums and have a $5,000 deductible.  I use the doctor so little that I have never reached a deductible in my entire life.  So I pay for most of my doctor visits in full or nearly full.  The medical insurance is a total waste but I'm told all the time I should have it so I get it.  Saying all of that, the couple hundred dollars I'd have to spend to get a five dollar bottle of eye drops is approximately $199 dollars more than my budget allows.

I'm done with my rant.

Anyway, I have had a case of pink eye and managed... thanks to some help from Anthony... to locate some eye drops to get them taken care of.  My eye still stings but a day of using the drops has my eye on the mend.

I still don't know where I got it from.  A few people have suggested Lucky the dog but he doesn't have pink eye so I'm going to chalk it up to some random unknown co-worker.

Darn you random unknown co-worker!
