I've discovered lately it's easy for your mind to get carried away; fictionalize REALITY as you worry needlessly over this or that. For instance...yesterday I had to renew my DRIVER'S LICENSE. No problem you say except that a year or so ago my opthomologist who couldn't be accused of optimism told me I had cataracts forming.
That was enough to put me in SEVERE STRESS, so at his suggestion I was to make an appointment. WITHIN the next year when I had problems seeing to have laser SURGERY. Try that worry on for size. He assured me that I would NEED this type of treatment WHEN I had vision problems. So I, waited then made an appointment with an eye specialist; and started worrying.
Finally the day for the exam with a locally noted eye doctor occurred. The NEW specialist told me I DIDN'T need immediate surgery-it was my decision when I was bothered by my eyes ENOUGH. Somehow I expected this new doctor to make that decision for me, but NO he didn't.
The only problem I have is with reading up close and he gave me new glasses with a STRONGER prescription. So it's been a year now. Enter the villain-the eye exam to have my driver's license renewed. Add the scenario if I don't get my renewal, I'll have to have hubby driveme everywhere and will become totally DEPENDENT on him.
I can almost think up a catchy title for this fictional story BUT it didn't happen-only in my MIND which was very creatively going BESERK! I went to the drivers license office, passed the exam with flying colors, got my renewal and still am in limbo about my EYE PROBLEMS???Worry is such a constant in all of our lives-it should be given a better name.
