    its no secret that I've had quite a few health issues but today I got a letter from my dr about going for further testing.

    This time last year I had a similar test done (ordered by GP) and they said everything looked normal but it appeared something was a little bit "thick" they said it's really not concerning but I should consider seeing specialist. Fast forward to now I finally get around to seeing said specialist. And they started throwing certain terms around. Thankfully the big C wasn't one of them. However I get a requisition to go back for the same test. Now I wasn't that concerned, but it says on the sheet what they're testing for and cancer is a word that keeps popping up on google. (But again nowadays whatever you type into webmd, cancer is usually an option) I know I shouldn't be freaked out. They probably just want updated results, but part of me is really worried that I waited too long and now have a full blown problem on my hands. Just looking for support so my mind won't run away with itself.

    Hey, you are doing the right things now so focus on that not the past. Keep your mind on the present.
