Not Life Threatening...
I have been cursed with getting frequent styes (which prevents me from availing of modern vanity accessories such as contact lenses) and for the past few days, it's been hampering my reading. The stye is now larger than my eye and there's still no opening from which the pus can come out.
Meanwhile, back in the office, the stye has been scaring my coworkers (well, it sneaks up on them as it's astounding how many people don't look at you in the eye when talking to you).
Edit: Styes or kuliti as they're called here have an urban legend surrounding them. It is said that you get styes if you're a peeping tom. Now if I saw a nubile naked woman every time I got a stye, I wouldn't mind it as much but alas, that is not the case.
