Can anyone help on this.....i am petrified to get blood tests, pap smears, mammograms, echo cardiograms etc..... i am paralyzed with fear that i will find out something is terribly wrong! I just KNOW something will be wrong-instead, i stick my head in the sand. I wake in the middle of the night in a panic worried about my health- at my age (55) i should not be this afraid of health issues- how do i make myself have a checkup and blood tests etc... and if something IS wrong how do i deal ??? Can anyone help?
