EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

There might be a slight chance that I get my gallbladder problem solved this very weekend. That might sound like good news, you'd think. But as usual, it always seems that my family are absolutely incapable of taking a grip on themselves, and I, the patient, has to be comforting and supporting my relatives who immediatly panic.

Why the hell can't I be pampered and spoiled for once? I'm absolutely terrified, since it would be the very first major surgery I would undergo in my life, and I have to spend time calming people around me!!

That is just so unfair...

Hey! Cheer up and calm down!. Here you don't have to comfort anyone but you.

Breathe....

I hope that your operation will go smoothly!

My mum has been having chest pains, and there were a few times when it appeared that she might have been afflicted with breast cancer (fortunately, they all turned out to be false alarms in the end). Naturally I was very frightened and I cried secretly without letting her know - I didn't want to increase her emotional burden.

Your family's reaction is understandable - perhaps you should let them know that you need them to be happy and strong for your sake. All the best and I hope you'll be healthy and fine!

I hope the operation turns out successfully! Try not to be too scared. Maybe calming your family can take your mind off the upcoming surgery?
Good luck!

ines: It took a whole metaphorical oxygen tank to calm down. ja,ja.

miao: I'm so glad it was just a false alarm! My family sometimes says that I am either a cold-hearted reptile or an exploding volcano because I usually react very calmly or go berserk in the face of danger, but never panick nor cry. Maybe I shouldn't forget that it is them who keep me human. Thanks for your good wishes.

Kyklops: Hey, man, long time no see! Thanks a lot for your good wishes. Indeed, trying to keep a dead-pan face helped me not to sucumb to panic.
