Got the confirmation call from the hospital today.

I really liked that the person on the phone advised me to tell staff about my anxiety. I like that this is now considered a factor in determining care provision, because feeling like you can't/shouldn't mention it really doesn't make it go away.

I never used to be so troubled by scopes, it's just that the last two experiences were a bit much - not because of the procedure itself, but because of other hospital related reasons. I need cheerful, chatty, familiar people when I go into theatre. Ones who call me by name, laugh at my dumb jokes, pat me on the hand and tell me everything's going to be fine.

But then I never used to be so troubled by hospitals, even as a patient. So it's good to know they think this matters.
