I get nervous/grumpy sometimes because I’m not sure what my labs will say so there you go. And its not because I get “yelled at” - my doctor and nurse practitioner are both VERY if there is an issue, move on and what are we going to do about it. Still get nervous. Its almost like I’m afraid I’ll be embarrassed. I get antsy with all the measuring (wt, blood pressure, etc) but its a necessary evil. Focus on how you feel when you walk out! I ALWAYS feel good, validated, someone listened to me, someone offered support, etc. Also, look at it as you are about to make someone’s day! They are in healthcare to help people. Think about when you are a success, they smile because you are their success. I also plan a treat if I have good blood work – a new scarf, trip to library, new nail polish – something to cheer you on.
Good Luck Grumpy!!! I wish you well and happy trails
