So I suffer with really bad health anxiety and I'm due into hospital tomorrow afternoon (Friday) to have a mole removed from my neck.
I've never had local anesthetic in my life and I'm absolutely petrified, plus I have to go in on my own because of covid obviously and I've never done anything like this alone before.
My partner is always allowed to accompany me at the doctors because they know how frightened I am, but when I went to a local hospital the other week to have pictures taken and I explained to the receptionist how bad I was she got quite snappy with me which made me even more upset.
People just don't understand, maybe because it's not a visable illness they just don't believe me.
I'm getting so panicked and I feel physically sick. I don't know what to expect, I hate pain, I hate needles, I'm freaking out massively, I've taken all my meds and I'm still Flippin out here.
Had a covid test Tuesday on my doorstep and had a full blown panic attack after, I was awful it's so ridiculous - please someone tell me it's not as bad as my mind is telling me. It's fear of the unknown and I've never had a local.
TIA x x x
