Why do people assume the worst (or is it just me)?
I needed to order contact lenses, but I hadn’t been to the eye doctor in 3 years. They wanted to see me before ordering new contacts. After the doctor was done, he sat silently writing for a couple awkward minutes. While waiting, I was thinking “why is he so quiet? Why is he writing so much? What is he consulting as he flips back and forth through my previous visits? Am I going blind? Is he trying to find a way to tell me I’m going blind? You’d think he’d have done this before. Should I ask him if I should insure my sight? Can you even do that? If I walk out now and call my insurance company to insure my sight, will they find out I knew I was going blind and cancel my policy? I have a lot of books I want to read. I wonder how long I have to finish my pile of unread books…”
Then he said something about seeing how far into the new year he could get without writing the old year.
My eyes are fine; no significant changes.
