    Without getting into any details, I have been having "woman problems" for a couple of months now. I've put off going to see someone for any number of reasons my mind could come up with (busy, work, school, it'll pass, "abnormaly normal", etc) but the biggest reason is fear, given my family history. Well, I finally decided that it's time to bite the bullet and find out what's wrong. I've even made the appointment 50 miles from home, in the same town as the campus that I commute to every day, so no one will think anything of me showing up at home later than normal.

    I have found that working in healthcare, your mind always wanders to the worst possible scenario, and so here I am, thinking the worst. I haven't told ANYONE, not friends, not family, not anyone. With all of my mother's health problems, this is the last thing she needed to worry about. I've kept this inside, the fear, I mean, for weeks. I've hid it behind the hustle and bustle of school and work, and the exitement of a new relationship. Now that my appointment is just over an hour from now, I feel like I have to get it out there. I need someone to confide in, and my BYC friends have always been an amazing source of support. I'm sure I won't know until next week the results, but I'm hoping it's something simple. So I ask you, please send good vibes my way.

    will do!

    I know I'm a total stranger, but feel free to PM if you want to talk about it. not sure what your specific issue is, but I've been through more than my fair share of womanly problems, so much so that modesty went out the window long ago!

    something to keep in mind is that fear and stress only puts more strain on you physically, so I'd say Rule #1, try to relax

    almost everything that goes wrong with us isn't as severe if its taken care of early, and you can't fix it if you don't know exactly whats going on.
    so go in there with a positive attitude, knowing that you CAN handle it, knowing that medical science can do amazing things, and...relax [​IMG]

    good luck and I hope this helps! [​IMG]

    Crossing my fingers that everything turns out ok for you! It's difficult to relax when stuff like this is on your mind, but I've come to find everything usually turns out ok in the end.

    Got you on our prayer list here. I went through a very similar thing years ago. In the end, it wasn't nearly as bad as I had built it up to be in my mind (family history fears here too). If I had it to do over again, I'd have bitten the bullet & gone & taken care of it sooner.

    Thanks y'all. [​IMG]

    For some reason I got the sudden urge to burst into tears as I left, but the "worst" is over- aside from the waiting.

    Keep your fingers and toes crossed! [​IMG] And thanks again...
