Nervous Much?

Tomorrow. Tomorrow at this time I will know if there's a breach in the perimeter. If the enemy has advanced.

The dreaded annual retinal exam. It's tomorrow.

You might wonder why I'd worry, someone with apparently good numbers who's never had a speck of trouble. You might even consider my anxiety a little self-indulgent.

But I still do. I worry about the 'what-if' part. Every. single. time.

Tomorrow at this time, I will be grateful, I hope. And able to breathe easy for another year.

I hope.

Hope all goes well tomorrow. I don't think it's self indulgent...just honest. Speaking of which, I need to make "that" appointment too.

I think we all go through that with every test/exam. I hate the "what ifs." Good luck!

Oh how I know that fear. I've been moved up to "every six months" because of the first speck in about a year and a half ago. Here's hoping they don't find anything. And if they do, it will be fine because you go regularly and they will have caught it early.
