I have knee surgery scheduled for this morning. I am very anxious even though through the same procedure on my right last year. I find it hard when I get anxious in these kinds of situations. Because the surgery is not in control, my brain automatically goes into panic and I seem to forget my skills or that I even have skills. Yesterday, I downloaded an audiobook for the wait time, found my favorite sloth stuffy that accompanied me last time, and made sure to get things ready like my crutches. Now I just need to remember to breathe. Anyone else have this happen to them- skills just seeming to disappear from knowledge?
