I try not to complain and I am a very private person, but I went for my follow-up appt for my results of my mammogram that I had done a couple of weeks ago and it showed a new spot on my breast and I have to go for a double biopsy on 2/3, the doctors says she thinks it is just a large cyst, but wants to do this just to make sure. I must say even though she says it is prob. nothing, and I am sure it is nothing too. I am going to very honest here, I am very worried about this as we have a very strong history of breast cancer in our family and my doctor knows this. I may be reading way to much into this, but she had a very differnt tone to her voice this time and much more concerned than I have ever seen her in the last 2 years that i have been going, and I go to her every 6 mos. I am telling you 2009 seems to be starting off to a not so great start, I have not been feeling well for quite a long time, but I just keep pushing myself to do what I have to do. I went to the doctor and my blood work came back, my ANA was positive, and I didnt know what in the world they were talking about, they said I may have Lupus, I went to the specialist and he seems to think I have fybromialga and not Lupus, which is a great thing if you have to have one or the other, he ordered more blood work and it came back postive again, I dont go back to him until March to talk about this, so I am praying he doesn't change his mind and says it is Lupus. The meds that he gave me seem to be helping, so hopefully I can just continue to take these and that is that! I know I have so much to be thankful for, this is just a small hurdle I have to get through and we will, my husband is so supportative and sweet, I just dont want to worry him, he has enough stress to deal with.

To my daughter, life is short so enjoy every minute.

Sorry I just had to get that all off my chest

I think that it is fantastic you are so good about going to the doctor. I bet it is nothing and your doctor is just a good doctor and is following through with everything! Please keep me updated.

I have no idea what fibromyalgia is, but I will be looking that one up today! I hope your diagnosis stays the same and the medicine helps with it all so you can get back to your normal self.

Thinking about you!

My prayers are with you, My mom was a breast cancer surviver, I am glad you are in good hands. You are lucky to have a daughter that gives you strength.
