I went for the trial run today, and they put that mask on me, and I lost it. I told them there was no way that is the mask they fitted me with. When they snapped it down around the back of the neck, I just freaked out, and could not handle it. It was so tight around my cheeks. My Doctor is new, and he was so great, he prescribed some Ativan and said to come back tomorrow and do it again. He did not pressure me at all, he so fantastic about it, and told me that I was not the first person that this has happened to. I guess what really got me was that he told me that my cancer was so severe that it would be at least 6 months before I returned to any degree of normalcy. That really upset my whole karma. Any advice??
