My Fears

My worst fear is very weird. My friends tell me I shouldn't be scared by it but, it stays with me. I am scared of telling people how I feel. When it comes down to sitting with a person and telling them my life's story and how I feel about situations I probably would get up and run. I don't know how this fear started but it's been there for as long as I can remember. To be honest I'm practicly shaking as I type this. If someone were to ask me probably the simplest question by asking do I feel happy or sad or scared it would probably take ten minutes or so to answer. I'm an animal lover and plan to become a vet so if your wondering, "she has to tell her feelings to someone" i do, animals.

 

        Sincerly,

worried and desperately need referral to specialist dr. please!!!!! Re: my mother’s angiogram results

My mother just had an angiogram and the Dr. that did it says that he hasn’t ever seen this before and there is very little data on this condition, and her treatment options. 
   

My  mother’s angiogram shows that the area of the branch to where 4 arteries are located, near the heart that leads to both arms and both sides of the neck to the brain are  extremely blocked with calcification.  Each of the 4 branches is very, very blocked.

The Dr. that performed the angiogram says that he cannot help my mother, as there isn't anything he can do, except advise us to do some referrals such as the Mayo Clinic.

Please if anyone has expertise in this area of angiograms, please either send email directly to me contactme705@gmail.com or post a reply (for everyone to see) of a referral to a specialist Dr.  re: angiograms.

Many, many thanks in advance for what may lead to an enhanced and much longer life for my mother.

Fear of flying.

Ok, so I've read all the statistics, and still I'm sure that MY plane is going to be the one falling out of the sky, that I will be on of that 0,01 percent dying in a plane- accident.  The result is that i haven't been on a plane for over ten years. I just know this to be true. How do I tell myself otherwise?

I can sooo identify with you on this one.  I recently had to take a long distance flight.  As we crossed the equator the plane started rattling and bouncing around like a baby on a pogo stick.  The lights were dimmed and for over three hours the seatbelt lights stayed on - I thought it was over and so did most of the other passengers.  During this ordeal I came to realise that there was not a single thing that I could do to change whatever could or would happen and that by stressing about it, I just made it worse for myself.  99% of the time what we think will happen doesn't and we cause ourselves tremendous pain and suffering by living in the future (also in the past for that matter).  Life is so fragile and temporary anyway, before we know it it's over, it's just a fleeting moment.  To sit around missing out on what life has to offer is just not worth it.  I say go take a flight and make peace with the fact that nothing is permanent.  I'd rather go out in a flash and experience life than sit around waiting for the inevitable...  Good luck with your next flight - go for it.

My fears.

  I am afraid of being homeless. This a a very real fear. My family is facing eviction from our home. I have been unemployed for months, with no hope for employment. My wife in in almost constant pain. She spends much of her day in bed due to the medication she's taking. I can't take it any more. Friends and family are no help. I find myself not trusting anyone. My anxiety is off the chart. I engage in self-abuse to take the edge off.

afraid

I am afraid and at the same time worried..I just came here in the US last year..I applied a job at school district as a food service..I got hired and attended some orientations and trainings and so on. But then they decided not to hire me officially because of my health..I took a medical check and It says that I have a false positive skin tb test althou my chest x-ray was clear..I guesss i was exposed to some person before who have a tb eh..I never smoke nor drinking any alcohol, I never take any illegal drugs.last year i took  the same medical procedure in HongKong in order for me to enter or my visa to be approve and it was all clear..i felt so sad and a a feeling of this is so unfair!!!! I suggested that if i will take the medication just to get rid of my stinking false positive tb test but they refused..I am healthy i never get sick i have no tb in my body system howcome they don't just give me a chance to get on medication. Althou i understand that im gonna work in the kitchen, with children but I am not sick so do u think this is unlawfully or what?
