Life Update

I haven't been blogging much lately.  Forgive me readers.  So I guess I'll update you guys a little bit.


I've been sick a lot.  I had food poisoning one day because I made some nachos at home with some questionable cheese and sour cream (that tasted fine at first...).  Then a couple days ago I had an eye injury at the gym.  I was using a resistance elastic band doing a leg work out for toning, then all of the sudden, it snapped.  One end came up and smoked me in the right eye.  My friends came to my aid really quick and drove me to the ER.  After a very long wait, I found out I have a hemorrhage behind my pupil. The next day I went to see an Opthamologist and he couldn't see through my eyes well enough to determine the damage because there's too much blood.  Basically I have to have bed rest for 5 days - 1 week so the blood can clear and he can look through my eyes.


I'm so mad that I'm missing work.  I can't do anything that requires a lot of walking, bending over and lifting because that will make my hemorrhage bleed again.  They gave me an eye patch to wear.  It's clear and it's not one of those black ones - Boo, I wanted to be a pirate.  Now I have to take stupid transit to see my doctor since I can't drive.  Being able to not drive is horrible.  I feel like the modern day handicap.


Hmm.. so my dating life has been.. colourful.  I've yet to find out what I want.  But I know they don't want a girl with one eye! Haha... but apparently this one guy still wants to hang out regardless.


See ya around readers.  I'll try to blog a bit more.  I thought I could catch up on my tv shows during this down time but most of the times, my eyes just want to close.

  1. Oh no! I hope you get better soon Kerri. But it's a good thing that the elastic didn't do anything worse to your eye. That bit about looking like a pirate made me laugh :)

    I was actually scared of driving for the longest time and now I'm just learning (going for my test in July!) and wow, transitting kinda sucks once you've driven! Haha

    Again, all the best in your recovery!

    1. thanks for the warm wishes! aww driving isn't so scary anymore once u get lots of practice.. i say go short distances first and just be super aware. who cares if ppl honk at you if you want to be a safe driver.

      i didn't mean to complain about public transit that much.. i guess it just sucks bouncing up and down on the bus and the sudden jerks the buses do sometimes...i guess it doesn't feel good for my eyeball lol. but i made it home safe and sound. and off to brunch with friends.

    1. yeah i got PRK recently as well! march was my 6 months date prior to surgery and i was at 20/20. i hope my eye isn't affected. i guess i'll find out in about a week once the blood clears. also be careful using those resistance elastic bands since i know you work out...

  3. I hope you get better soon! It's a good thing the injury wasn't too extreme though. I'm the same as Maddy, I'm terrified of driving and I only recently started thinking of taking lessons. Taking transit is a pain sometimes though (especially when it's raining or too hot).

    Get well soon!

  7. Omg that's insane! I've always been scared of those resistance bands snapping and breaking. Now I'm never using it again! Get well!
