Tell us about a time when you were brave.
Submitted by Hops.
The last time I remember having to be "brave" was when I had a medical procedure done. As to that time I had never been "put under" and had no idea what effect the anesthesia was going to have on me. I had heard horror stories from friends on what happened if you were allergic to the drugs they were using, how sick they got when coming out. All in all, not much to lessen my anxiety about this process.
That and I HATE needles.
But I had a great anethesiologist (sp?) and doctor. It was 'almost' painless.
I still don't like needles.
Now I realize that compared to our troops and those living in unsafe areas, this is nothing. I am a wimp.
