Tomorrow I will be having a Tonsillectomy, a surgery to have my tonsils removed. I have never had surgery or general anesthesia before.
I am, quite honestly, SO very afraid, scared, fearful.
However, I do not want to let the fear engulf me. I do not want to let the fear become endless worry. Both fear and worry aren’t productive in this situation. They do not assist or benefit me in any way.
There is nothing I can do about the tonsillectomy. I need it. In fact, I have been putting the surgery off as a result of my fear, to the detriment of my health.
Because there is nothing I can do about it, I am trying to let myself accept that it is what it is.
In this acceptance there is no need for worries and no space for fear to take hold.
