Are you from Marrakesh in Morocco? (judging by your username)
Yes it was Glaucoma and no I am not from Morocco, I am from the Netherlands.

Worst: having a debilitating ovary related health issue that cost me many hours of my life due to pain and the misery of it. At some point I was almost put in disability because it made it nearly impossible living normally. Thankfully it seems under control at the moment.

Best: my husband, hands down. The kids are great too but I chose to be with him and he's my favourite person in the whole wide world.

Worst: leaving school at 16, returning but spending too much time smoking weed, and failed my first leaving cert

Best: falling in love for the first time with such a kind caring person, still together four years later, and also, passing my leaving cert and getting to choose whatever I want to do with my life.

And of course, being lucky to have been born into an amazing, hard working caring family. <3

When I was in college I was at the point of making a decision about which stream of my degree to specialise in. My grandad told me not to make the decision without him (as it was in his line of work), I told him I wouldn't as I left his house. That was the last time I saw him. I think about that moment a lot, mainly because I was a little short on patience with him during that visit for various reasons. I regret that immensely.

Too hard to choose a best and a worst really as when thinking back there are multiple choices for both.
But I'll give it a go.
Worst. The fall out from a friends suicide . It was only a drunken comment but it completely changed me for the worst.
The best. The exhilaration I felt after escaping a life threatening situation . The pure rush of whatever runs through your body after something like that was something I had never experienced before ,or thankfully , have since , but it was an unbelievable drug like rush of both euphoria and pride ( I can't think of the word to describe it ) .It stayed with me and expelled alot of demons. So in a odd way nearly getting shot was a good thing ?

Worst - Being promoted into a position I was ultimately ineffective in, along with the subsequent humiliating fallout. It happened over a year ago now and I'm still reeling / figuring out what went wrong.

Best - Anytime I get to make people laugh.

Worst - when my husband of 13 years finally admitted hed been 'seeing someone' for almost 2 years. And they'd had a child together the previous year.

Best - the circle of loving, supportive family and friends that surrounded me and minded me and hugged me through the horrendous year that followed.
