Ok guys -----
I decided to do it.
Yes, I am getting Lasik. Tomorrow.
Please think of me as I am getting my eye sliced open by a laser and then having my cornea reshaped. NBD.
Here are my instructions:
No makeup - ok
No lotion - not ok, in the winter? Come on.
No perfume - ok
No deodorant - uhhhh, not ok
No hair gels or hairspray - well, that's just not gonig to work. I have enormous hair.
Fine, fine.....what next?
They are going to give me a Valium (ok, good) to relax. This is good for the staff at Reed Vision because otherwise I would be asking a million questions. "What's that do, what's that called, what's your name? hahahah! Sorry! Have you seen the Hobbit?" I speed talk if I'm nervous.
Next, I go home and sleep. They are going to give me an ambien. I am not sure if you know this but I have been officially diagnosed with "excessive daytime sleepiness" by a real doctor. This explains why sometimes I fall asleep during movies, meetings, at my desk, at concerts, and my best one - at a UT football game - outside. I am not sure that an ambien is necessary and I am nervous it will make me do weird things - like eat all the chocolate and cheese in our house. Note to self - get rid of all chocolate and cheese in house.
So, again, please send me your good thoughts and next time I see you, it will be with new eyes.
