Today, I am 'preparing' for the colonoscopy/endo I am having tomorrow. I cannot eat any food----strictly clear liquids ALL DAY! Then, tonight....I get to 'clean myself out' with a healthy dose of laxatives----OY! Of course, I am nervous---and scared about
this whole thing!
I keep telling myself that I am my health advocate, I have been waiting for this test for a while now----and everything will be alright! I also tell myself that I HAVE to do these tests b/c my father died of colon cancer, and we are lucky we live in a time that they have tests to catch these things early!
Then, I think the "what ifs....." What if they do find something wrong with me? What if it's serious? What if they find nothing---but, I am still experiencing the pains in my upper right quadrant (and have been for 6 months now).....then what? SIGH!?
Health Anxiety sucks (hope that's OK to say here)!
I also have a lot of running around to do-----
So, today, you may see me 'whining' alot on the MB! Sorry in advance!
