************
And you know what? Since I had no stories created around it, the experience was my own and it all went fine without any added drama.

************
Not only that but I was not anxious or nervous at all, and I have not been put under since five years old when I had my tonsils out. Hence, less stories floating around in the mind, less chance of anxiety and nerves coming...
