No Writing Today

Went to the doctor instead. My eye infection grew far too unbearable. I've been loosing sleep and getting headaches. It's no wonder I've hated every word I've typed since the beginning of the week. But I finally caved in, paid my $75 to see a doctor and get a prescription; paid $72.99 for a tiny bottle of prescription eye drops--you never realize how expensive this shit is until you don't have insurance. But it's done, and my eye will soon be better. It already feels a bit better since putting the first couple drops in. The plan is to make up my writing time tomorrow when I usually take Saturdays off. But only after I've slept in...of course.
