I'm nervous about the retrieval. I've always been weirded out about being put under. When I was 12, and the dentist told be I'd need to have my wisdom teeth pulled someday, I freaked out. I was worried that, like people in sitcoms, I'd start talking and divulging secrets while under anesthesia. At 12, my biggest fear was that I would somehow reveal that I was gay. As if the moment my eyes closed, I'd scream "I love titties!" So while I'm no longer a closeted kid worried about coming out while drugged, I'm still a control freak. And the idea of being knocked out still makes me a bit uncomfortable. It's like being drunk in front of a group of sober people.
