When they don't listen to you, what do you do?

Oh my fucking god I want to kill my girlfriend right now.

What do you think of when you hear these symptoms: eye pain, blurry peripheral vision (some of you have already figured it out), nausea, redness of the eye, and the big one: halos around lights?

These are all symptoms my girlfriend is experiencing right now. If you're thinking glaucoma right now, thank you. You have proven my point.

I know, she probably just needs a new prescription for the lenses she doesn't wear on a usual basis. But according to the pathophysiology class I'm forced to attend to learn about the causes of disease rather than the treatment of them (but that's a different post), all of those symptoms are completely classic for glaucoma.

If your girlfriend showed these signs and you didn't say anything, didn't make her go to the doctor, didn't try to help, and she wound up blind, how would you feel?

Now if you did show your concerns, showed her the evidence, showed her every possible thing you could to get her to go to the doctor, and she still didn't listen to you?

Exactly how would you feel?

Because I'm frustrated.


  1. How would I feel? I'd dump the bitch!

    By the way, why the hell is your girlfriend not on birth control? I can read through the lines of your previous post.

  2. I like your blog. I am making progress to get into Midwestern University within the next two years and start my own PharmD program. I am excited, and nervous about the adventure. I see that it can be very rewarding and also stressful. I would love to follow you along your journey as I continue to start mine. :) Good Luck on all your studies.
