I don't know what lessons I am supposed to be learning .....

Tough day - sometimes I really wanna scream at the universe "just take all your medical drama and shove it".
I have been feeling amazing since my hysterectomy, best decision I ever made. Back in April this year my life turned for the better. I could finally work out without bleeding to death, no more constant cramping and bloating. I have been celebrating my health by working out 6 times a week, and eating healthier than I have in my life. I never want to take good health for granted again.
Today I had a routine mammogram. In a split second that good health seemed to be in jeopardy again. The radiologist found a lump, I knew it was there, it is under my breast I had assumed it was from wearing underwire bras. She called the Doctor guy who reviews the scans .... he came in to talk to me, he wanted another 4 pictures. Those 4 were so painful, holy smokes, the positions they don't get your boobs in!
After those he came back and said he wanted to do a stat ultrasound, I said ok I will book it, he said no today :( I had been trying to stay really calm, and being thankful that they were being thorough, but now I was scared.
I had an hour to kill before the ultrasound, I phoned a friend and cried, I went shopping to divert myself and then went back. A new guy doing the ultrasound told me the lump was 4 cms .. he kept going "mmhmm" "hummm" I wanted to scream at him to shut up ... I was starting to freak out inside.
I don't know what happens now. I suppose I will hear from my Doctor on Monday, I had a scare about 8 years ago, they drew fluid and it was just a lump no cancer. I am totally convinced this is the same, it has to be ......
I have no history of cancer in my family, and my blood disorder is enough to contend with!
But at the end of the day I am scared ... I have some terrible scenarios in my head, I keep replacing them with happy thoughts and positive thoughts, but they creep back ... its going to be a nerve racking 48 hours and I have an assignment due on Tuesday, I can't focus, I have to focus ......
