Lump Update

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I realized this morning how much I am like my 3 year old daughter. From the time she was a tiny baby, I often had to "manage" her by showing her that things could be worse. Like if she was fussy because she didn't want to be in her jumparoo, I would put her down for a nap, when she REALLy didn't want that, she would then be quite content in her jumparoo..

This lump that I've had in my throat for the past 12 days has half driven me crazy. At first I thought I was never going to be able to handle it. And then the last 3 days it got worse, culminating in a horrible time last night where I was gagging and choking because the lump had moved up and was affecting my gag reflex. I couldn't eat (even chicken broth set me off an made me feel miserable).

So this morning, when I woke up with just the plain old regular lump, I was so happy. 10 days ago, you could have never convinced me that I would be happy to have this irritating uncomfortable lump. But at least today it's not choking me, and I think I might be able to eat a little bit....

Small blessings.....

    Thanks Sammi-Sam, I saw a Dr. after 3 days, because the lump was throwing my anxiety into overdrive!

    If the lump is there in ten days, see a doctor. Something seems to be wrong here. Good luck... emoticon

    I hope this gets resolved soon! I still think it's your thyroid. But I'm no doctor.
