Aww! Happy for you and try not to panic! They’re all trained professionals. I’m glad you’re doing it a full year out from your wedding date, too. I’m getting close and I’m starting to become paranoid of everything from chopping vegetables to walking on icy sidewalks to skating at a decent speed. All the best!

Congrats! Best of luck tomorrow! Just trust that the doctor knows what he’s doing. Try to think of the outcome today (rather than the icky surgery).

Woohoo! Congratulations!! Can they give you a tranquilizer or some kind of ‘happy pill’ to help you relax? They gave me one when I had laser eye surgery, and man, nothing could have bothered me, LOL!!! Focus on the after rather than the during, it’ll all be worth it! Good luck tomorrow!

Just take a few deep breaths and try to relax and let yourself be excited about having it done.

I recently had to have a dental procedure done and I’m terrified of dentists. What worked for me was that I asked the dentist to only talk to me when she needed to inform me of something and otherwise just to let me try to zone out. I closed my eyes and during the whole thing I envisioned the types of photographs that I want taken at my wedding. When things got painful, I would focus really hard on all the technical aspects (Ie: Fiance would stand here and I would stand there and BMs would be x number of feet away and holding the boquet at xx degrees from her body…every last ridiculous detail.) It really helped me to not think about what was happening.

Everything is going to go great!

Good luck!  It will all be worth it in the end.  The freezing will sting a little but it doesn’t last long.

make a plan to get yourself a little something special afterwards.  Maybe a new eyeshadow?

Good luck.  I would ask for a pill or laughing gas to put you at ease for the surgery.  It will go fine I’m sure!

@Pappy8: The laser place gave me Xanax and wow, that stuff makes you happy, not a care in the world, lol. Or it did for me anyways 😉 I’ve had Ativan before, it was a different feeling from Xanax, it definitely zoned me out, but each person reacts differently. I’m sure between that to help take the edge off, and the tools you’ve learned in therapy you’ll do great! We’ll all be sending you happy thoughts tomorrow 🙂

@bakerella:  Yeah things do work differently for different people.  I had a Xanax before getting my eyes lasered and it did nothing for me lol.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  Oh man, I think you could have told me my hair was on fire and my response would have been “Cooooooool maaaaaannnnnnnnn”, LOL!!!!

@Pappy8:  You’ll be great! You can conquer this. Try breaking it down into little steps too. Focus on one little thing at a time and celebrate each of those 🙂
