Well, I have an update on my corneal erosion eye problem. I saw the doctor this morning and he says my eye is improving but I will have to continue treatment for at least three more months. And I may have to get glasses again after only two years of laser eye correction. Sigh.
My husband accompanied me to the doctor this morning. My inner feminist quakes at telling you this but I needed him there because I feel a little intimidated by my doctor. And the funny thing is that I'm usually a strong person who isn't intimidated by anyone. My mother and grandmother were both strong, independent Texas women so some of it had to rub off. But, when it comes to male doctors, I have issues. I don't ask enough questions and I don't tend to stand up for myself. Maybe it's because I feel vulnerable. And maybe it's because I had to see so many doctors as a child. But I knew having my husband there would help me. Plus, it's good to have someone there to help you think of things to ask and to remember what the doctor said.
Maybe I'll just think of it as bringing my "wing man" rather than "Hey, Mr. Doctor Man! You better be nice or my husband's gonna beat you up!"
