Why is my eye swollen shut?

So over the weekend I woke up with some discomfort on my eye. I didn’t think much of it as I’m always getting banged up, but my research indicated that if there is no improvement within 48 hours, it should be looked at.

I’ve made an appointment with a doctor I found on Zocdoc in the general area. Hopefully this is nothing serious and can be treated with some antibiotics, rest, or eye drops. We shall see how it goes, the appointment is for later today.

Its funny how one day you are just fine, then you wake up the next day and something is off with your body. I understand that we are fragile organisms that are prone to injury, illness, etc. But wouldn’t it be nice to be like Wolverine and never get injured?
