I know this happens to lots of people and isn't always something bad. But I just got a call from the doc's office that there's an irregular spot on one of the mammogram views done last week, and that I need to come back in right away for another.
I'm going tomorrow--but the moment I made the call my somewhat anxious-tending brain began looking at all the worst-case scenarios. My husband is in China at the moment. My sister is very sick with a chronic condition. My best friend has something major going on in her life, a big crisis. Another good friend died one year ago to the day from breast cancer. I don't even want to mention this to my high school age daughter, why worry her. Why worry anyone? But still I feel like I'm about to burst with worry.
I know I shouldn't worry at all. It's just a precaution most likely--but--I am suddenly feeling overwhelmed. Almost died from blood clot/pulmonary embolism in April--they said most likely from being on the pill, but another HUGE risk factor for clots is cancer.
I guess I'm just looking for some online words of support. Just needed to vent my worry somewhere...thanks for listening!
