As a cancer survivor, I get to go back for follow-up doctor visits, blood work, scans and more every six months. Here we go again! I got the blood work done yesterday. Tomorrow I go to have my ultrasound scan after work. Then I have an appointment with my doctor to go over the results at the end of next week. Deja Vu!!
I’m getting the hang of it now. The fear seems to lessen each time. I’ve learned that worrying and negative thinking does not do me any good mentally, spiritually or physically. (It reminds me of this quote I found. “Worry is a huge waste of time; it doesn’t change anything, except maybe your blood pressure!” ~Author Unknown)
Trust me, I can list many other things that I would rather do with my time then getting more tests, scans and sitting in doctors offices. But the reality is that I need to continue to be responsible for my health be doing these things. In turn, I am able to live a healthy life and free from cancer.
