Brave… an antonymic limerick

askulapstab-258880_1280

Sometimes fear becomes irrational
While awaiting results factual

Trying to be brave
Determined not to cave

Anxiety reigns, understandable!

  7. Initially confused (perhaps by the graphic) and then worried… Clearly you wrote antonymic – I saw anatomic. Thanks to The V Pub: Misery loves company. Heh, heh, heh…

      3. I had my mammogram and it was abnormal and I have to have a needle biopsy and maybe a stereotactic biopsy next Tuesday. Same thing 3 years ago and I had surgery after, was benign. Not horribly worried, a little bit. Same side again. I also take Coumadin for a genetic clotting disorder so have to stop that 5 days before and give myself injections. Then if they do surgery later, go through the same thing again! I shouldn’t whine, it’s nothing compared to what some people go through!! What’s going on with you??

      4. Im sorry! That is stressful for sure! I will be thinking good thoughts and sending happy vibes your way! Please email me any time. I get very anxiety ridden over medical issues! Can you still take medication for anxiety during this time? Hugs hugs hugs

      5. Yes, but so far I’m good. I’ve been thru it before and it was fine so hoping for the same result. If not, I’ll have lots of time to be upset later, lol. Hubby gets more nervous and isn’t much of a help 🙂
