Interestingly, on the day I went for my first session of testing (early December, 2004), my eyes broke. That’s the only way I know to describe it. The first test was a general screening test, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). I had to do it at a computer, and it took well over an hour to complete. (Personally, I think that is a very stupid test! Guess that says something about my personality!)
I knew I was in trouble just a couple minutes into the test. I began to struggle to focus long enough to read the questions. The questions were multiple choice, so I had to read the answers too. It was all I could do to get through it. I couldn’t read it all, so I guessed at much of what it said. I never went back to find the results or do more testing. I already knew what my problem was.
That was on Friday, and the following Tuesday I saw my Ophthalmologist. After testing my eyes, he agreed that surgery was the only solution. He only does the surgery on children, so he sent me out of town to see a specialist who does the surgery on adults.
