Your Father's Hip, He knows What Cooks

For years my family and friends have joked that I'm the bionic woman. I'm not allergic to anything, I have perfect 20/20 vision, I never get seriously sick--I've never had a flu vaccination in my life, I have a very high tolerance for pain--I didn't even figure out that my arm was broken until I attempted to use it and I couldn't figure out why my hand wasn't quite working. I've never had a cavity in my life, and I'm always forgetting to floss and brush my teeth in the morning.

So it scares me very much these days that my vision, all of a sudden, seems to be going. I've gotten so used to being the only one who doesn't need glasses or help or anything--to being the one that every jokes there is nothing wrong with.
