Unhappy induce?

Hi! I need some help on this one. I am being induced on Wed. morning and I am scared to death. This is my second pregnancy and with my first I went into labor on my own and even though my labor was long (18 hours ) it was natural and without any drugs. I did have an epidural. There is nothing wrong with this pregnancy other than the fact that I have been dialated to a 3 and 80% afface for almost 10 days. I also have this very "helpful" co-worker that told me this terrible story about how her neice got an epidural and went into cardiac arrest. Do you think this is common? I was a little anxious with my first pregnancy but I am scared to death this time and I dont know why. Help please before I go nuts.
