I know just by reading so many posts over the years and having to deal with my own medical condition, that fear is a one that strikes a chord many times.
You know by reading my posts, that I believe very strongly in how much a positive attitude and approach can help you.
Put that aside, What are your Fears?
I know over the years I have had many
1 - Would I be worse after surgery?
2 - Just what would I need to give up after surgery?
3 - Will I make it out of surgery?
4 - Can I resume a normal life?
5 - Will my loved ones support me?
6 - Just how will I be 10, 20 years from now?
7 - No doctor believes me
8 - I dont want surgery, what can I do?
9 - Can I return to my old job duties?
10 - ??? What are yours?
