Your eyes won't get too much worse. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. People call you at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you???? " You can get into a heated argument about pension plans. You can eat dinner at 4:00 in the afternoon. In a hostage situation you are the most likely to be released first. No one expects you to run -- anywhere. You are no longer viewed as a hypochondriac.
