Scared Stupid Part Two- The Waiting Game
« on: January 20, 2014, 03:41:44 PM »
So, I've had my MRI and the only thing I can do now is wait for the dreaded call. Are my visual trails (palinopsia) benign or do I have a brain tumor. I'm not sure I can muster the courage to answer my phone when the results are ready. The fear is paralyzing.

I'm so sorry that you are going through this.  I understand the fear of answering the call.  It is horrible to wait, but then when the time comes you don't know if you can handle the possibility of bad news. 

I don't know if this is the kind of thing you would practice (some people might think it's weird), but it was recently given to me to help me through the waiting game.  It is a positive affirmation and can help lower your anxiety a little:

Breathing in I calm my body.
With each breath I choose to inhale poise and strength.
I exhale any thought that does not serve me.
I know I am supported.

If you haven't heard anything by now it's extremely unlikely anything serious was found.

I agree. If there was anything worrying they would call you back sooner rather than later.

Please keep us updated!

I know how you feel. I had to wait for MRI results last month. Let us know your results. Hang in there.
