Conjunctivitis is the nastiest infection ever.  I have never had it, nor want to, but I know some people who have fallen victim to the nasty.  My cousin and Steven Dyer have had it.  I remember hearing my cousin woke up and there was so much crap on her eyes that she couldn't open them.  She was real young so she freaked out.  Imagine being like four or five and not being able to open your eyes because it's covered with this crusty goo?  I would freak, I also would be disgusted with myself, knowing my body did this.  Imagine seeing someone with their eyes stuck closed due to eye boogers?  I picture it like the beginning of McGyver when Mac was blind and had those bandages over his eyes, but instead of bandages it was mucus, or whatever that stuff is.  Man, conjunctivitis is gross.
