@lorirenee1– Wonderful point. I love the word awfulizing. Because that's what happens when fear takes over. I have to be aware of it too. Since I have a long history of lung cancer every new thing to me is a new cancer. It's hard to stop. Finding out what it is, allowing tests to be done, helps me calm down. If I know what the results are than know what I'm dealing with.

Hi again, @faraway53, (Does agoraphobia make you feel that way?) I too, have had breast cancer, and I know exactly how you feel about fear. I wait for a mammogram every 6 months, and wait for my surgeon to tell me the news. While we are here, alive, we face love, tragedy, joy, fear…..part of being alive. Bite the bullet!!! Just do it!!!! Inspite of fear, just do it! The courage you develop will make you stronger for the next time. What other choice do you have, anyway? YOU ARE ALIVE. Do what you have to do!!! One step at a time, that you succeed, is an accomplishment. God bless…Lori R.
