About a month ago I had a weird dream. I won’t go into detail but it involved my breast and a blackhead. I attributed this to my love of doctor pimple popper videos. But it lingered. So, I did a self-breast exam. And I found a lump. Crazy! I was freaked. I called my doc and went in for a mammogram. The day after my mammogram they called me to schedule a diagnostic ultrasound. Now I was getting more freaked. It was a week before I could get in for the ultrasound. The good thing was that I got my results that day. They bad thing is that they wanted me to get a biopsy. I was now in panic mode. They could not get me in for two weeks. If you have ever waited and worried for two weeks it feels like your life is on hold. To make it worse I am in Seattle all alone. My husband is back home working on the hemp farm while I am on a travel nurse contract till the end of the year. I was scared and alone, I couldn't focus and per usual only thought of the worst. I had my biopsy Tuesday and got the call yesterday, EVERYTHING IS OK! I tell you this because it is scary and hard. RA is not always the only thing going on. Other things can sneak up and before you know it you are overwhelmed again. But all we can do is our best and hope it will all work out. I am grateful I am a lucky one, I could be writing a very different post right now. And for my health I am grateful.
