Facing my 1st f/u is messing with my positive thoughts.

Staying positive can be a challenge sometimes, especially when going to follow-up appointments. And sometimes it's important to not force yourself to be positive all the time. It's okay to feel what you feel. You may wish to also take part in this discussion:

I agree one step at a time is an accomplishment, not matter how tiny the step. What questions do you have for your doctor at your follow-up appointment? How can we help you prepare?
