That's wonderful! Be proud of yourself. As someone else who has been ducking out on going to the doctor for a long time, it can be damn hard to screw up the courage to go in.
Seriously, I hope that one day, I feel as strong and empowered as you.
(And try not to be too nervous. You're gonna get there and go 'I was nervous about -this-?') Really, big congrats on this one for seizing control of your health.
Every step I take proves one thing to me: success just isn't possible, it's inevitable.
Success isn't magic. Failure is the tool we use that teaches us how to succeed. Don't be ashamed of it: own it. Use it as the opportunity it is.
