Medication before GA?

Hi everyone,

I'm due to have a lletz under general anaesthetic tomorrow and to say I'm hysterical is putting it mildly. I'm completely petrified of needles and anything medical. I've never been under GA before. .will I be given something beforehand to help calm me down? I feel like I need to be put to sleep in order to be put to sleep, I'm completely pathetic with this stuff.

I'm also considering asking to have it done under local instead so I'm at least aware. I just feel like I'm equally terrified of both options and I don't know what to do for the best. Any advice welcome :)
