Anxiety high

I am waiting for my Covid test appointment. Need to have it done before my cataract surgery on Tuesday. I have been up since 5. Couldnít sleep. I know itís required because of surgery. I have no symptoms and have done nothing risky. But I am sure itís going to be positive. Canít shake the anxiety. Donít know how I can handle waiting for results.

It's hard. I hate waiting for test results. I try to tell myself that getting the test done isn't going to change the situation. If I have covid (or whatever it is), I have it anyway regardless of whether I get tested for it.
It's the worst though. I hope your cataract surgery goes well!

The waiting is hard. I've been there. I had to get a COVID test before my colonoscopy. I had my test on a Friday and I got my results on Sunday. Hang in there and try to relax.

They did both throat and nasal swabs. A little painful but just for a few seconds. Now the waiting.

Hope the time passes quickly so you can get it all over with, and that you have good outcomes for both.
