Having pink eye doesn't mean you're looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. It's actually a really grosseye infection that you need to know about. Get the 411 right here.
Pink Eye - What Is It?
Pink eye is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the clear membrane that covers the sclera (the white part of the eye) and lines the inside of the eyelids. The correct name for this eye infection is conjunctivitis, but people call it pink eye because your eye turns pink or red. Though it can be pretty uncomfortable, pink eye won't affect your vision!
Pink Eye - What Causes It?
Pink eye is usually triggered by an allergic reaction, or when you come into contact with a virus or bacteria.
Pink eye can clear up on its own, but it's best to see a doctor and get a prescription for antibiotic eye drops. You should see an improvement after a couple of days of treatment, even though it can take up to two weeks to clear up completely.
Pink Eye - How Can I Prevent It?
Viral and bacterial conjunctivitis are contagious, which means you can get it when you come into direct contact with someone who has pink eye or with something that person has touched, like a towel or tissue. To prevent pink eye and other eye infections, wash your hands frequently, don't touch or rub your eyes, and don't share make-up, eye drops, towels and washcloths.
Pink Eye - Did U Know?
Pink eye is one of the top reasons why kids miss school.
I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.
I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.
I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't define you -unless, of course you let it... She probably wants you to feel "more grown up," or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons. If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
