It's 8am and I'm having needles stuck into my eyes. And it's not even for something like botox. Or collagen. Or lasik. Would it hurt? Would I cringe? Would I panic? "The worst part will be the numbing injection," the doctor says. He makes a crinkly face and says through clenched teeth "it will feel like a pretty bad bee sting. In your eyes."
Doesn't this sound enticing? Exciting? Invigorating? It's how I began my day. It's no big deal. And I'm not going into detail except to say it's done and over, and I'm okay. I wish I could say I look 10 years younger, but alas, I do not. My eyes are puffy, I have a little bruising, and a little while ago they started to sting a lot. But they are smooth and lesion free, which is always a wonderful thing. Needles in the eye? Not a wonderful thing. But it's done, and I'm grateful I have such good insurance to cover things like this.
Hope your day is going better than needles in the eyes!
