Maybe The Phone DOES Have A Cure For Medical Anxiety. I Wouldn't Be Surprised

Good morning. I have a doctor's appointment in two hours and although my doctor is the least scary doctor I've ever met and also very, very sweet and not bad looking and young enough to be my child, I am as anxious as I can be.
Of course.
BUT, in perusing FB this morning, I learned something about my phone which I feel I must share because it's the next best thing to a magical cure for medical anxiety I've ever seen and as far as I know there is no known cure for medical anxiety, magical or otherwise.

Do you have an iPhone? Are you over forty?
Okay. If so, proceed. Actually, you don't have to be over forty. This will come in handy anyway.

Go to Settings.
Go to "General" under settings.
Find "Accessibility". Open.
See "Magnifier"? Turn it on.
Close settings.
Hold your phone over something with small print. Click the home button three times rapidly.

WHOA!!!!
What did I tell you?

I'll report in later if I don't have a stroke in the doctor's office.

Love...Ms. Moon

    1. It's so awesome. I don't have to wait for Owen to really learn to read so I know what the fine print says.

    1. He's mighty sweet but I don't think any doctor in the world is that sweet.

  3. My iPod is too old. I will just have to keep squinting and moving the paper an arms length away to read.
    Don't have a stroke.

  4. That magnifier is pretty cool. But I'm not sure what I'd like to make larger. Flower petals maybe? And of course, yes, small print.
    Hope all goes well at the dr.

    1. Anything! But especially fine print.

  5. Wish it worked for Android. Sometimes I take a pic and enlarge to see the small print. These old lady eyes can't see shit anymore.

    1. I've done that too, Barbara, before I learned about this little trick.
