This afternoon, I have to go back for the repeat pap test... yes, the day is finally here, the appointment that I booked weeks ago.
 
So... I came to work this morning and two coworkers have called in sick, the person who was supposed to cover for me while I'm gone has to cover for the others, and my supervisor is working it all out.  I'm going to go to the appointment. BUT... I had a very bad Crohn's upset yesterday that I won't detail here because I'm nervous about the appointment, I slept 3 hours last night, and guess what... I almost called in sick myself just because of the exhaustion.
 
But I'm here now.  I'm at my desk and so far I'm okay, eating very plain food today so I can get through this.  Please tell me it's going to be okay.  I am grateful at the very least that my supervisor is kind and will make sure that I get out of here on time this afternoon.  She is good about that.  But I hate gyn exams and I am nervous.  Your good thoughts and best advice are much appreciated, and I hope you all have a good Monday and that we all end up looking back on days like this and laughing some time in the future.
 
Take care, and help me keep the faith,

Dear Betsy

Many loving Hugs to you and remember my dinner time this evening this will all be history...........you will be home safe and sound and I know you have what it takes to go to the appointment and just stay in the moment.

I will be praying for you to keep that anxiety in the green zone.

Hugs

Kitt

Well, it just got more exciting... doc's office called and moved the appt up 2 hrs b/c she has to leave early! So now it's 1:30 instead of 3:30. My supervisor is a saint, she really is... she said we'll work it out, not to worry.

I should probably mention that this is the second time in as many visits that this doctor has had scheduling issues on the day of the appointment. I'm getting suspicious.

Thanks for your good thoughts.

Sending love and healing thoughts your way today. Will keep you in prayers that the pap test comes out well.

Hugs,
Gail *Nanners*

P.S. Can you drink a "little" caffienated soda, maybe that may help to perk you up some. I can only drink a little myself, so thats why I was asking.

Hi Gail, a little soda probably wouldn't hurt. You know as I do that having an inflamed gut and being nervous is not a fun combination!! I am hopeful that the test will come out well, but whichever way it goes, I'm going to change doctors. This person isn't the best doctor I've ever had, and since she left her partnership and went out on her own, her schedule is unreliable and there's not a back-up doctor on hand, which adds to the anxiety.

Thank you for your prayers and hugs! Sending some to you!

Betsy, what exactly is a repeat pap test? I've never heard of that.

You need to be proud of yourself for showing up to work today. Try to relax and continue to watch what you eat. I sure hope you feel better!

Well, the test is over and now I can relax and hopefully be awaiting good results. The nurse and doctor were very positive about it all and I hope they're right that it will be okay.

Going to put my feet up now and kick back. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers, I really felt them.
