How do I start this...

In case some of you saw zilch of me the past week, I am currently recovering from a damaged eye from (wait for it): a defective pack of super glue. Now before you guys laugh at the deja vu of a holy bukkake, this is actually quite serious. The super glue exploded to more than just my eye, it affected my eye lid, and has caused me to lose 1/3rd of my eyebrow, half my eye lashes, and 1/3rd of the left side of my mustache. While I can simply grow back my facial hair, my biggest concern is my left eye, my superior eye, which is currently reduced to a blurry mess. A real blurry mess. As you can imagine done things with one eye is extremely difficult, and you can tell right now I am having a very tough time enjoying anything right now, and considering my two most enjoyable forms of entertainment (manga and anime) involves the use of ones eyes, well, it isn't fun anymore.

And I've tried too. I tried the latest ep of Aquarion with only one eye, and I don't know if it's because of Kagura or the fact my Mixy got manhandled by that doggy, but it was a painful viewing experience. So I thought maybe it was too much action, maybe some manga would help. I tried to use both of my eyes and have my right eye compensate heavily for my left eyes blurryness, and it was actually hilarious. What looks like a Quadruple Accel to normal readers looked like a Hexccel to me, and I saw a lot more Charles-chan than I think there was. Speaking of that, I didn't know "Charles" can be a girls name too...

Anyways, that's what it is right now. I have no idea when this will heal, if it will ever go back to normal, or if I can actually post properly anywhere. This blog post was filled with typos, I had to rely on the red lines I see to correct whatever I did wrong. I'm still not sure of that, but as it stands, I won't be touching Photoshop anytime soon, but I won't give up anime and manga and I will be using the rest of my strength to enjoy those two like I have been. It's painful yes, I never knew my eye could burn so much without a single flame in sight, but the thought of dropping those two horrifies me more than the current eyepatch that I have to keep handy in case my eye tells me it's too much. I am not giving up. Do I regret not wearing my glasses the moment that super glue burned my eye? Yes, I regret it heavily. But I know I would regret it even more if I let this current season of anime pass me by all because of a silly mistake I did.


  1. I am guessing you already went to the eye doctor and so on, but just a patch? they didnt give u anything..cause when my eye got hurt from a stupid thing i did. . start pushing white stuff which was a sign of infection so they gave me treatment for that and treatment for my eye as well. it toke time but my eye sight came back. just go easy on your self. and check with your doctor if anything ever comes up

  2. The general warnings on glue are "in case of eye contact, flush eyes with water immediately", which I did, but this being super glue, I had to use the patch to cover my eye and let the rest of the glue come out on its own.

    So far, the only thing now is that its slightly blurry, which I belive is something like nerve trauma. Maybe I need to see the doc about that, but I have my reasons for avoiding doctors since my last visit with one 6 years ago. Of course, if it persists, and anything goes horribly wrong, I have no choice but to go.
