Hi everyone. Does anyone else have fears that everything and anything 'bad' is permanent? For example, if you have a headache do you fear it's permanent? I have back surgery coming up in April for a bad disc that is supposedly causing my feet to be numb, tingling, buzzing etc. It makes me crazy, and the minimally invasive surgery is supposed to fix it, the recovery is supposed to be quick, but I have such a fear that I will be the ONE person for whom the surgery doesn't work and I will be left like this. Can anyone tell me, if you experience this, what can I do or say to myself to help me think better? I have another problem that also should go away with time , but I fear that too, will be permanent. It's all really making me crazy and panicky. I'm actually not nearly afraid of the actual surgery (not yet, anyway) as I am of it not working. Please help! Thanks!
