Don't do that to yourself! "What if's" will get you every time!! Believe me, there is nothing , absolutely nothing!!!, you can do about them! So please don't waste your time and energy worrying and pondering the "What If's?" It doesn't help your pain and suffering today, and most probably makes it worse! Tomorrow will come and you will have all your answers, or at least some of them!
I hope today gets better for you! and Good Luck tomorrow!
