Thank you :) I know deep down that you're right but I still tend to worry...I wish I could get a referral easier but I guess if it changes like you said, then they'll give it to me faster.
I need to stop touching it..because I'm making the entire area sore.

Woah..I'm sorry idk why that posted there?? It was meant to go on my own thread..Either I'm going crazy or something glitched.

Anyways, my response to you as well is LISTEN TO SIXPACK. Don't fret about a few numbers low or high like she said. Leukemia is detectable fairly easily from blood work. Your blood work will be out of whack completely. And like she said as well, you would be very ill right now. Its not one of the cancers that can take years to show symptoms, you will feel it.
Your lack of appetite and exhaustion is anxiety. I have had it as well and when I was worried about lymphoma, I was worried about those feelings as well because cancer has those symptoms. But when they say loss of appetite + exhaustion it means EVERYONE will see it and that it will be very bad. I knew a girl with leukemia as well (she survived and she is fine, she was diagnosed around 17), her blood work was extremely off and she was sleeping almost literally all day long. Everyone knew something was up.
You have done everything you can, you are totally okay.

Now I'm scared even more! Where the 11 year olds numbers high or low

Good LORD do you not actually understand what I wrote or what the doctors told you or that your bloodwork was NORMAL???????

   YOUR BLOOD WORK DOES NOT SHOW ANY SIGN OF BLOOD CANCERS!!!!!

this boy's blood work WAS BAD.  YOURS IS NORMAL!!!!  Quit making yourself a victim of cancer when you don't have it.  It does not matter how scared you are or what your anxious thinking is telling you.  Because you are wrong

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

your number on the wbc was not in the range that says LEUKEMIA. 

and you are still under the delusion ( I know strong word) that doctors and labs and stuff LIE to people out of, IDK, grins or for fun.  What would be their motivation to do such a lame assed thing?  Are the doctor and the Lab staff sociopaths?  that would be the ONLY explanation.  however I don't can you say that with a straight face.   because that it is a ludicrous notion. 

Now you can go on with this if you want, however, again you are wrong

I've been keeping up with this thread and I feel the same as you...
I've worried about so many diseases so many times now and been sure I had it and I'm sick of it..its like being diagnosed with a terminal illness again and again (according to my anxiety).
Sometimes I feel like I wish it would happen already...quickly

I'll be fine , I'm sure if I was having symptoms of this bs aml leukemia disease, my bloodwork would have been bad and they would've called me ....but my mind keeps telling me since the wbc was 3.3 and the other levels were normal but on the lower end..."everything is a downwards trend"...but no, I don't feel terrible I just feel weak and sh*t... I will get over this just like I got over my little hiv episode , .... I have an appointment next week and I'm scared like what if they are gonna tell me something actually wa bad... But I've already been told that as a medical practice they can't withhold stuff from you...ESPECIALLY a freaking indication of acute blood cancer, I just would like to know how they rule it out in a cbc...that would really calm me , but on a serious note, I have my faith in God and he has never lied to me, I've heard him say softly in my ears throughout the day " your fine son" "you have a long life ahead of you" "I have put you here to be successful not to die"
