I am 55 and am extremely afraid of having my first colonoscopy. I know the procedure won't be that bad, but both my parents had colorectal cancer and ended up passing away. I was the primary caregiver to each of my parents and went through a LOT of emotional trauma in doing so (for almost 5 years). My daughter is helping me realize I must overcome this fear and have the test. How do I learn to let go of all the emotional burden and fear I've held onto for so long?
