I'm in Las Vegas, and I am suffering from ALLERGIES. Yes, allergies. I know you all are thinking, how do you have allergies when NOTHING grows in Las Vegas? Good question. I have been asking that same questions myself for the past couple weeks as I wake up every morning with red, dry, puffy eyes.
I lived inVirginia my whole life and never had problems with allergies. If you haven't been to VA, it is overwhelmingly green and filled with plants, flowers and all sorts of nightmares for allergy-prone humans. Vegas on the other hand has very few plants, flowers and trees and even sets restrictions for the amount of grass you are allowed to have in your yard (%40 in back yard, none in front and sides).
So, you can see why I have been so surprised to find my eyes all red and swollen for the past 2 weeks. I even had a kind co worker tell me,
"What's wrong with your eyes...it lookes like you are high."
To which I relplied,
"Shouldn't you be saying, 'Angela, what a beautiful outfit. You looks so cute today!"
haha. Oh well. If any of you have contacts and have suffered from allergies, you KNOW what I'm talk about. My dry eyes make it so my contacts dry out, which in turn causes them to fog up when I don't blink every 2 seconds. I then sit there and ajust my contacts and roll my eyes around to get the moisture, but then I get a headache from all the eye movement.
I am seriously considering laser eye surgery!
