What are your worst fears? What keeps you awake at night? What makes you cry senseless sometimes? What makes your heart palpitate with anxiety and sends you on a panic frenzy?
We all have our worst fears. Some fear of death, reptiles, spiders, heights and all sorts. Some fear of the supernatural. Recently a colleague of mine had a cancer scare. Fear of cancer. She found a big lump on the thyroid gland and the doctor has advised surgical removal of the cyst in case it becomes cancerous.
And so yeah, that's a new fear i would say. Especially when now when you hear of people getting cancer more often than before. The whole process leading to one's discovery of cancer is agonizing enough. The tests u need to take. The waiting for the medical results. Just the thought of sitting through a session with the doctor waiting for him to tell u whether you've got it or not. I guess it's the fear of the unknown or the unexpected that really gives u the spine-chilling experience.
And just a discussion with my colleagues, they said something of fear of surgery. Of any kind. It's invasive and just the very thought of someone cutting me up is enough to send me to shivers. I've never even got my appendicitis removed before. Can't even gather enough courage to get my wisdom tooth removed.
