Dear Mexico, I really don’t want to go back to LA, not quite yet.
We took a trip to Mexico for Raffael’s birthday and I got to say, it was a great last minute decision. I wanted a peaceful place after staying in the city for a while so we stayed in beautiful Tulum. The city is so beautiful and there is much to see and do so everyday we would plan a trip to see Cenotes, beaches, Tulum Mayan temple and eat at some of the great restaurants in the area. Mostly importantly, a relax day by the beach and walking up to birds and see the sunlights through our windows.

Everything was going to prefect till one morning I woke up and I couldn’t open my eyes! My eyes was so sensitive to lights and it was one of the most peaceful moments in my life. I thought the pain would go alway so I decided to go get breakfast and that’s when I realized that it was very serious and I had to be taken to the hospital. The funny but sad part was, there was no optometrist in Tulum so Raffael drove me to Playa Del Carmen which is an hour away while I was in so much pain. I thought I was going to loss my eye. We got to Playa del Carmen and went to two other hospitals but no optometrist as well. We finally found a doctor after three hospitals.
The Doctor told me my eye was infected and I had a lot of scratches in both eyes but my right eye was the worse one and had to be covered and kept away from anything bright( like the daylights, phones etc) . So for the rest of the trip I looked like I got beat up or from pirate of the Caribbean hahaha. It was so weird seeing with one eyes and bumping into stuff haha. I was very comfortable, It’s hard to explain but I felt so different as if I wasn’t expected around people. It must be really hard to be handicapped. We need to appreciate all that we have now because you never know, things might change and it’s all gone. I was so grateful that my eyes will be ok and I’m still recovering at the moment. But I didn’t not let that stop me from having fun. The next day, we went to the beach and I carefully went in the water without hurting it more. I plan on take more care of myself with out beating myself up or caring about what people say about me and my looks.
