Waiting for Results, Advice Please?
« on: March 29, 2014, 02:18:05 PM »
I'm going to my specialist to get results for my MRI this Monday. It feels like the longer I wait, the worse things get. Monday isn't far away but it feels like I'll never reach it. I keep feeling like I'm waiting for my execution. I mean, they'd call me early if it was something serious, right? Or would they really just wait until my appointment to tell me anything? I don't know how any of this works! I hoped SO bad that I'd get results the day of my MRI, but no, MORE waiting!

They said the masses in my hand were very clear in the scan, is that good or bad? I can't stop thinking like this and its affecting my health, appetite, focus, everything. I keep feeling new aches and a numbness in my right shoulder that's been there since Thursday I'm convinced is from my hand, even though that's crazy. I'd feel a lump or something if that was the case, right? Besides the lumps in my hands, I mean.

I'm sure plenty of you have been where I am. How did you cope?

You need to find a way to relax, as hard as it may be! You'll get your results on Monday, and until then, you need to distract and enjoy yourself as much as possible. What do you enjoy? Think about that question, and then do whatever you come up with! If you want to quiet your mind, find something to do that is highly interactive.

Don't read into the things that doctors or techs or nurses say - with HA we're always looking for some hidden implication, even when there isn't one.

My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.

Seems like the closest I get to tomorrow, the harder it becomes to distract myself. I keep feeling random aches everywhere and it makes me feel like tomorrow is gonna be me having just waited this whole time for bad news. Why does the mind have to torture the body like this?
