As a person who has various health issues (bipolar, addiction, GERD, fibromyalgia, IBS, allergies, asthma, obesity and who knows what else). I have learnt to spend less time worrying about the outcome of any tests and just living one day at a time. I don't need the stress that comes from worrying about what usually doesn't happen. Take it one test at a time and deal with what you know to be true. Also, holding information from your family might end up with them being upset with you later when they find out, if they ever do. Just tell them the truth; you are afraid and need their support and love.

I have 3 tests scheduled... a CT of stomach and pelvis tomorrow and next week I have a colonoscopy AND endoscopy. The day after Thanksgiving I was in the emergency room with near fainting spell and learned I was anemic. I've had pains in my stomach which in itself is not bad unless I press on certain areas of the stomach.It may be that the anemia and stomach problems may be related. I don't want to scare my family needlessly so I've been pretty quiet about the whole thing. To the few people that know what I'm going through, I'm putting up a brave front saying I will find out what the problem is and take care of it... on the inside I'm scared to death. I know it's stupid to worry about things but I can't help it. I know some of you must have gone... or are going through, the same thing. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?
