Thank you so much for the updates. I agree wholeheartedly with Ger. Please keep your appointments. Sounds like you've got good medical care and they are checkin every nook and crevice to make sure you don't have anything 'mysterious' going on. No growths, YAY!
I'm sure alot of us can totally relate to the 'pride' issue.
I remember one Dr (older man) came in the room to give me a breast exam. Thank God the nurse was with him. At first he just stood in the doorway (barely even closing the door!
) and said, "Well, the first thing I always do when giving breast exams is stand at a distance and get an overall 'view'. MWAHHHH?!! So, there I sit, bits hangin out, the air was SO thick with 'awkwardness' couldn't hardly breathe.
That was actually creepy
I won't go into the other ones....but yeah, I sure know the feeling of being a butt-neked PIN CUSHION!
You're always in my prayers, Karen, especially about the depression bit.
