Ugh. That's what I have. I've been trying something new for my itchy allergic eyes - Patanol (tm) eye drops. They worked great for about three weeks and stopped the annoying itching that I get due to seasonal allergies. Now I think I'm starting to have a reaction to the eye drops. Underneath my eyes is puffy and sore and red, and it's gotten much worse just the last couple of days. It looks awful. I thought at first I was just having some puffiness due to too much salt for a day or two, but it's persisted. I'm going to have to ditch the eyedrops and just wait for winter for the allergies to subside.
Fortunately my allergies are minor compared to Commodore's wife, but still....
I hope they don't look at me too closely at the health club this morning and keep me out of the pool. I want to take my new, unscratched goggles and "aquatic fitness" swimsuit that I got last week on sale for a test drive.
NO, I am not posting photos.
Update: Yes, I finally did that swim workout I've been putting off! 2050 meters in the pool, including some kickboard work, with the crazy lady doing water aerobics sharing my lane. At the same time the water aerobics were going on in the next two lanes, but I guess she didn't think she fit in there.
I don't think I like the new suit very much. It's that newer polyester fabric that is supposed to stand up better in chlorine, but the fabric is stiff and scratchy. Plus the square neckline acts like a water scoop. I'll wear it for workouts, but it's not going to be a big favorite.
