You know how the stereotype is that everyone's afraid of the dentist? Well for me it's the optometrist.
Every single time I've ever been, I've gotten violently ill afterwards. I'm not a sickly person by any means.
The machine on my face gives me the same feeling as some people with needles.
I've avoided going for 6 years now, but my vision has gotten worse over that time and now I have astigmatism induced migraines… yay.
