I GOT A DATE !.......

  1. And now I'm scared out of my mind. I received a call from Evelyn in scheduling, and she left me a message regarding mid wk at Utica for June17-19 or June 24-26. I returned the call to see if I could get a July date, left message. I get home, and OH MY GODDNESS, there was this email, which states; your cpne will be at albany med July 10-12. Boy, I am sooooooooooo scared now. I knew when I started this program that the cpne existed, and I know those here on the boards have gone and passed; but until I received that message today, I thought that it was a mystical torture story that I would magically get thru EVENTUALLY. I became frightened, nervous, anxious and.......confused. Can I do this I asked myself? Will 2months be enough time for me to prepare? I felt like calling my primary for some xanax just to calm me down over getting a date!

    I haven't spoken to Evelyn again, but I'm thinking of accepting the July 10-12 date. June is too soon for me and only difference is I was hoping for Utica, but it's not the site that will determine my fate, but me. Thank you for letting me ramble.

    I would love to receive any assistance on organizing a concrete plan. I can't seem to get it together, but with a date looming, it's now crunch time
