Fear has been stopping me from doing something I should do for over two years: the dreaded colonoscopy. As a breast cancer survivor, I should be diligent about anything cancer-related, however, I’ve let the fear of the test prep for this particular test get in my way. Let’s be frank, it’s a gross test and a gross topic–who wants to discuss diarrhea? That’s right, no one.
But, in the last few months, I have been taking on my fears and just plowing through, so this appointment was made weeks ago and now it’s time for me to face it.
Normally, I would let my anxiety coerce me into overeating, but this time, I’m kicking butt. I’m tracking, planning and keeping a strong mindset… so I’m really proud of myself.
As for the prep tomorrow and the day following: I’ll get through it. After all, I’ve been through much harder things and come out the other end better. This is no big deal, comparatively.
What can YOU take on confronting TODAY that YOU have been putting off?
