Sleepless in Ottawa

I've been up since 4:45 am.

To be more correct, I woke up screaming at 4:45 am, having nightmares about the two procedures scheduled for tomorrow early afternoon.

Haven't been able to get back to bed, so figured I'd get up and write a journal entry. Just can't seem able to deal with this whole business, as I'm in a state between panic and absolute terror. My previous experience with the colonoscopy was not pleasant, and the fact of the matter is that I don't expect to be doing well after the procedures are complete tomorrow.

In the meantime, I get to have a seriously intense liquid diet today, and then have to take the first dose of the ultra-strength laxative at 6:00 pm tonight. I don't expect to get any sleep tonight at all, and have to take the second u-s laxative at 6:00 am on Wednesday morning. Just going to have a seriously bad couple of days or more overall, and I need to figure out how to distract myself.

No point going back to bed, as I won't be able to sleep.

I'm sorry. I think your doctor has the right idea with doing both procedures while you're there, at least then you don't do one and then have to dread the second one. Are you allowed to listen to music or anything while they do the work? I've found that trying to just mentally be somewhere else is helpful for me when I've got to get through something really stressful.
