I am one of those people that worries about everything or thinks about the worse possible outcome to everything. I know that’s awful but that’s juw how I am :(Anyway, i am extremely close with my Mom and I love her so much. She had cancer about 16 years ago( endometrial) and had surgery and it was gone. She has had a history of cysts, the last one being nothing about 2 years ago.
She has been saying she has been having bad pain in her pelvic area for a few weeks and her Dr. is sending her for an ultrasound tomorrow. She’s very healthy, works out at least 5 days a week andis all around just a very energetic person. She just recently turned 57 which I consider that to be young and I am just worried. I hope and pray it’s nothing but I always fear the worst…anyone else the same??

In times like this I always use the motto…
“Prepare for the worst.. Hope for the best”
Because I am the same way, I over think everything and sometimes even worry myself about how far out there my thoughts and anxiety can go.
I also have similiar issue as your mom, had a hysterectomy in Dec 2011 because my biopsy they did came back abnormal and showed I had complex atypia hyperplasia (dont think I spelled that right). And even though it was not cancer at that time, 33% of women do develop it and considering my family histoy (more than 4 women has/had woman related cancer and have passed) I did not want to take that chance because my mind went over board.
Keeping the fears/worries to yourself helps because its easy to forget when youre not going through it that other people sometimes don’t understand why you’re not panicing or why youre so calm.
Hope that makes sense. It’s scary watching those you love go through something scary. But being someone who was also in a similar situation it helped a lot that my family wasn’t overly panicing infront of me because if they would have I would have been in a worse place

@PoeticDoveInLA: That is def how I think, I just hope it’s another cyst and it’s nothing to worry about. She was just complaining about the pain nothing else really. Goodluck to you and I hope everything works out for you!

Me too! Especially when it concerns my parents. I dread the day I get a phone call, I’ve been blessed that they are in good health.
Sending prayers to you and your mom.

@PoeticDoveInLA: “Prepare for the worst.. Hope for the best”
This is exactly what I do. I worry about everything. I forgot who said it, but it makes me feel a lot better when I’m a mess…”Worrying isn’t a way to prepare for the future.”
