(TL;DR of my issue: I’ve been having abdominal discomfort for over a month now. I had an abdominal ultrasound that was normal but the feeling is still persisting.) I went to the GI doctor today, and I left feeling more anxious than before...not because she said anything bad, but she ordered for me to get an endoscopy and also a HIDA scan to check my liver/gallbladder function, and I also had bloodwork done for like 4 different kinds of panels. I don’t feel good right now :( I’m scared, and I don’t want to be scared. This is the most stressful month of my semester. I have all these exams at school coming up, and I just want school and my health issues and all of this to go away. I don’t even know if there’s anything seriously wrong with me or if it’s all in my head or stress-related. I just want to crawl up in bed and just not deal with anything.

Not to mention, all of these things cost $$$$. I’m under my dad’s insurance plan and am very fortunate enough that they will pay for these things (I’m a dental student, so I have no income and therefore my parents support me for things like healthcare and necessities), but I just feel like this is so fucked up and that I shouldn’t get these tests done because they’ll just cost so much. Especially if it turns out to be nothing at all.

:( At least it’s Thursday and almost the weekend?
