To know or not to know

Friday, October 05, 2012

When I was younger, I always 'knew' when I was pregnant. Even the first time when of course, I had nothing to compare it to. Eventually it dawned on me, if I was having 'symptoms' and I thought I might be pregnant, but I didn't KNOW I was, then I wasn't. A logic that never let me down.

The same was true when I 'knew', my toothache was due to a Wisdom tooth coming through. And when I 'knew' I had bronchitis. Likewise when my Doctor thought I might have pneumonia but I knew it was a chest infection. And when I knew the severe pain in my chest was an ulcer, not a heart problem. So on that basis, I don't 'know' the lump is malignant, so it must be benign. Figures eh?

In that case, I should shut up about it and we can just dance some more. We could start with that blast from the past' The Bump. emoticon

Bright blessings.

    Mine was benign... I never worried about it, because I "knew" too.
    Here is hoping it turns out that way for you.

    The waiting (for confirmation one way or the other) is the hardest part! Sounds like you have a pretty good 6th sense about these things, so that should help to rest easier. Besides, worrying is like rocking in a rocking chair; you can do it all day, but it won't get you anywhere! So keep dancing... it's way more fun! emoticon

    Wisdom says you do know what's going on. The wait is horrid. When i finally got my "diagnosis" that I had waited almost a year through various tests for, I was about to start a class, doctor told me and I didn't have time for it . I was yes, yes, have to go. It worked out well. Whatever it is, you will be able to move forward

    Most lumps are benign, but I hope you're right anyway. Mine wasn't, and it was nasty. But I'm going for my five year mammogram and check up in a couple of weeks, and hopefully will be discharged. It totally changes your perspective, but there is life after cancer so don't despair, always here for you if you need me.
