Facing my Mortality - Part 2 - an update

I recently found something in my body that I was worried about.

Now cancer doesn't grow that fast, so I was sure that my recent radiation exposure was just making me paranoid.

But I decided to go to the doctor this past Tuesday, just to alleviate my fears. Have it checked out.

Well, unfortunately, my doctor didn't just alleviate my fears.

I have an appointment this coming Wednesday with a specialist and may need a biopsy.

Instead of allowing myself to find escapes from the inevitable anxiety this has been causing, I'm trying to focus on enjoying the warmth of the sun against my skin and singing my heart out to my favorite songs on my new i-Pod.

Worrying accomplishes nothing.

We only get one life. I want to make the most of it.
