I find the waiting is the worst bit. Once I'm there I sort of go into over drive and just let it all wash over me. It's over and done with in such a short space of time and is really worth it for the peace of mind.
Aw sweetie, I used to be like this. Listen, the anticipation is FAR worse than the event which will be over really fast. Tell them how you feel and they will be super kind. But well done you for getting it done in spite of your fear, as it's really important. I think we forget how lucky we are to have these screenings - they are a really positive thing. Think up a nice treat for afterwards!
