TWO triumphs today.


Just thought I'd share with everyone.

I was born with a heart condition. I see a cardiologist every year for a checkup to make sure everything is ok. My appointment was supposed to be this past August, but every time I went to make the call, I couldn't. Today I worked myself up and made an appointment.

Also, for the last two weeks, I've been trying to work up the courage to schedule an appointment with a psychiatrist. I finally called and made the appointment right after I scheduled my heart checkup. My hands are still shaking like leaves, but I DID IT!!

Well done Dan208! Very glad to hear that you were able to make the appointments, both because it was a social anxiety triumph and also so you get to have your heart check up and can make sure that everything is ok. Hope it all goes alright!
