Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its Trouble it empties today of its Strength!

I should have that saying tattooed on my forehead. Yesterday I had a punctoplasty. It is a 10 minute out-patient thing where the surgeon dilates the opening in your eye that leads to your tear duct and snips a little bit to allow the opening to stretch. The worst part about it was that the local anesthetic, lidocaine, stings when it gets into your eye. It didn't even hurt when the local wore off.
But the anxiety that the anticipation caused me had me stressing so much.I couldn't sleep the whole night before the procedure. I couldn't sit still, ate cookies out of a bag (about 15 of them) and generally made my husband's life miserable.
Why do I worry so much about things before they happen? I don't know. But I'm really glad this thing is over and it seems to have been successful.
