Good News


I think I probably came close to having a nervous breakdown over these past two weeks or so. Along with all the other health problems, I found one of those things that every woman dreads: a very scary lump. A huge one, not one of those things where you’re hoping that it’s just your imagination. No, this was one of the ones that stand up and proclaim “YOU’RE GONNA DIE. YUP, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. HASTA LA VISTA, BABY.” Or perhaps that’s just me. In any event, I was terrified and called the hospital to schedule a mammogram (my first one ever). I was lucky, and got right in.

And then I waited for results. For two and a half fucking weeks. Now, I’m not saying that I totally lost it, but there was a point where I was planning funeral music. (For your information, I was totally going to go with Dancing In The Graveyards, but then settled for Fields of Gold.)

I finally got in for the scan/biopsy appointment and they decided it was a cyst…everything was ok. It was drained (which was TOTALLY disgusting and just as unfun as one would assume) and I went home feeling light enough to pass out.

One more biopsy at the end of the month, and then (fingers crossed) I’ll be able to put all of this behind me and let everything get back to normal. Hurrah! :D

  1. I’m so pleased everything went OK for you! Sometimes the worry can be worse than the illness. Funeral music?!! Talk about a writer’s imagination!

    Take it easy and chill! Although I’m loving these new covers you’re designing!

  2. Oh no Ravv…. that must have been AWFUL :(
    I’m so sorry you had to go through it. I’m so relieved for you that it was a cyst. I cannot even begin to imagine how horrible those two and a half weeks must’ve been. Really, really happy you’re ok.

  3. Total empathy. We’ve had some similar scares lately. I can relate to both ends of the process AND being trapped inside your own head. If I could just get the voice to shut the hell up and be…I dunno…more it-is-what-it-is, I’d be a whole lot calmer, but that’s not going to happen, at least not on the inside. Sending calm thoughts…the good ones :-)…your way. Seriously happy it turned out a cyst; may good news be the trend.

  4. So sorry to hear that, Sunwolfe. Bright thoughts and best wishes to you. <3 We could both stand to live in less "interesting" times, I think!
