Just do what you have done for weeks and years. Stop worrying about anything. Life is what it is.
Indeed Mike, I should be positive, but your right, I am not right now. I am not handling the issue with my eyes very well. Mrs Squatter is also very concerned, as is my whole family. I am trying to adapt the attitude "why ruin today over what may happen tomorrow"

I also think that some much needed rest will have me feeling better for the meet.

Your advice is golden as well. Thanks for that!!

Strong Benching and DL ... Give your 100% and you will do wonders at meet ... stay healthy ...
Thanks Ravi. At the time, I thought it was plenty deep, and then I watch the vid and notice I leaned and barely made depth. At this point, I would be really happy to repeat my 405 that I got at my first meet in Vegas.

Bench and deads went quite well last night tho.
