embarrassing story time.
while we're home here in Rochester, my mom decided that I should have about a million doctors appointments just to make sure that i'm all ship-shape.
yeah yeah yeah.
today happened to be a double whammy of doctors appointments,
beginning with the eye doctor.
holy hannah, the eye doctor is the scariest doctor i have ever been to.
poke my gums at the dentist, test my reflexes at the pediatrician, but get me AWAY from that eye doctor.
the appointment went something like this.
apparently you're supposed to go to the eye doctor every year and a half.
i literally have not been in 10 years.
who's with me?
the nurse then proceeded to "numb my eyes." that was just not okay with me.
numb my eyes? so i couldn't feel her poking them and dabbing them with all these drops? was i going to go blind? can we even feel our eyes anyways? what does this even mean?!
the doctor then dilated my pupils, which in turn made me look like a frightened deer,
and i realized i forgot sunglasses.
hello paper sunglasses, thanks for making look like an IDIOT the rest of the day.
i proceeded to drive around like this for another three hours as i headed to more appointments and the gym:
overall: my experience scarred me for life. now i know why i waited ten years to go back to the opthamologist.
now that i'm writing this i'm realizing how dramatic this sounds, but at the time it was traumatizing.
you can call me Ray Charles.
