@ opnwhl4, thanks.
I know that, and know that I get continually stuck up on this issue of Barret's progressing more than most people do. But I have read it is a risk of .5% per year. If I were 50 I think I'd take it in stride a bit more, thinking that I may have another 30 years, so the total risk is 15%. And if I die at 50 it'll suck, but it isn't like I died at 20. But I am 28 now, and would be so worried of having Barret's and living with the constant stress of it maybe progressing. I know the odds are in my favor, but still...its my life on the line and I would be really worried that within a few years it would progress simply due to bad luck (for some it never progresses, for others it does, and for some it does early). It is just extremely uncomfortable for me to think about...but I know I think about it way more than most (maybe even more than those who already have confirmed Barretts :)
