I have been working since the end of 2011 to reel in my panic/anxiety/freak-out over my health. I felt as if I were living in six month increments. After the results of each clean scan with no evidence of any new disease, I would sigh, then worry the next six months. In my anxious mind, every little pain, or odd feeling had to be an obvious sign of cancer. I’m so glad I have a patient Primary Torturer.
It feels really good to have conquered that type of anxiety. It took a lot of determination, practice, talking to my therapist, and coping techniques, but I did it!
The only problem, since this is a scan with contrast dye, I have to abstain from any life source entering my body until afterward.
Therefore, I’m re-posting a photo while thinking of the smell. I can’t wait to get back home…actually, there is a Dunkin’ Donuts on the way home. I may have to stop in there.
