Like many of you here I have had a great and productive life up until this point. I am soon to have surgery and hope it will improve my life and I accept it must be done and I believe I have a great NS. I have never had to have treatment because I had a medical problem.
I feel so anxious when I think of the mechanics of getting through this. I am thinking about that last car ride to the hospital. The nurse putting in the IV. The mask going over my face. I want to freak out and run.
I really though I was more mature than this (Geesh!)
Does anyone have any strategies for being brave and not freaking out?
