ILiveInFlipFlops Posted October 9, 2012 Share Posted October 9, 2012 ..before a traumatic event? I'm having a surgical procedure (the first of three) on Thursday morning. It will be my first-ever invasive/surgical procedure, my first general anesthesia, it involves the general invasion of my girly bits, and it will mean discomfort for a few weeks. I'm a total wreck. I can't seem to calm myself, and I'm afraid I might have a full-blown panic attack or something. I can't even envision myself being functional in the hospital on Thursday morning. Obviously I need to have this thing done, and it's not even that major a procedure. It's really kind of ridiculous! I know that. But I feel like I'm walking toward my doom. So when you're this afraid of something that simply has to happen, how do you settle yourself enough to make it all work? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
