aw I’m so sorry, but I’m sure it is nothing. Honestly, I don’t know hardly anyone who hasn’t had a “scare” or two, or who doesn’t have some random weird thing about them. I have had a few things happen in my life too and I’ve thought the same thing– why can’t I just be NORMAL. But then I really thought about it and realized that my brother, my cousins, my parents, my friends… almost everyone I can think of has had some weird medical unknown thing that has popped up. I also remember seeing a doctor on Oprah once talk about how the reason they don’t do full body scans on people hardly ever is because basically EVERYONE has a few weird things that aren’t actually dangerous but would freak you out and cause unnecessary tests. 

Try to stay calm about it and not think the worst.

Yup, have a few weird things too.  Hopefully it is nothing to worry about.  Take a deep breath. Hange in there.  You can always worry later, so no need to worry now.  Sending good thoughts. . .

Hang in there! I was in a similar situation with swollen lymph nodes when I was 16, had the needle biopsy and all that, they came out benign. Some of them have never gone away, others come and go when I catch colds/flu. Fingers crossed yours are the same and just merely an annoyance. I’ll be thinking of you and hoping you get good news!

Ok, I get the same way as you, with freaking out about this kind of stuff. I know this sounds totally crazy, but try this, it might calm you down.

Think about the worst possible outcome, and live in that time for just a moment. Then spend as much time as you need thinking about how awesomely supportive your Fiance and family and friends will be, how they will come together for you in your time of need (if it comes down to it).  Once you’re done with that, get up and do something that will completely take your mind off of it (I usually call a friend/family member or the hubs, or give my dog or the hubs (if he’s around) and extra hard squeeze).

I know it sounds counter productive, but really it washs warmth and comfort over you, and shows you that you can live through whatever is going on in your life.

I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and for me the worst part was being diagnosed. I didn’t tell anyone until it was 85% confirmed for the same reasons. Not knowing what your dealing with is really scary. I know is sounds weird but once they said oh yeah it’s cancer, this type, this stage, etc etc…. I was ok. I could put my energy towards quality treatment. I hope things go well and that everything comes back clear. Try to put your energy towards what you are going through at that time. The what if’s were a lot harder for me than they needed to be.

I’m glad you posted this, I saw your first post and was wondering how it turned out.
