I’m sitting here right now.
A big, silly ball of nerves.
All I can think about is that I’m finally going through with getting lasik surgery.
There’s something about surgery on the eyes, elective surgery no less, that makes me feel like I’m signing up for the possibilty of going blind.
I know that I’ve found a great doctor.
After all, who doesn’t want a doctor that voluntarily does the Gangnam dance for his patients?
But in all seriousness, I think my nerves are getting the better of me.
I’ve been in contacts since I was 14 years old. Long enough for them to become a staple part of my life.
Long enough for me to learn to rely on them.
Now I wonder what it’ll be like not to have that part of my daily routine anymore.
I’ve been wanting to do this surgery for sometime; timing just never seemed right.
I mean, I have to plan it around meetings, traveling, weddings…
Did you know you have to wear glasses for 2 days leading up the surgery and no make up for 7 days after?!
Girls you know that this is no easy feat when you’re needing to look your best for preschool pick up, meetings, play dates….
Heaven forbid someone see me as I really am? You know, no make up, pj’s, glasses
Oh wait! That’s exactly what I look like in the picture I just shared.
Talk about putting it all out there.
Since I’m so nervous about this surgery and have been putting it off for quite a few years, I thought I would share this journey with you.
Are you on Instagram? If you are you can follow me here and we’ll be taking pictures of the whole process. eek!
I’m baring my soul people…
You can also follow along on twitter, I’ll be using the hashtag #AlissagetsLasik
My surgery is 1pm today, any suggestions for staying sane till then? Have you had LASIK? How was your recovery time?
