Perhaps I phrased it badly NannyB ... I'm sorry ... I wasn't being dismissive ... I knew about your lesion and I of all people know how important it is to get these things seen to ... my son has had several lumps removed as have I, and my brother has had two nasty ones removed, and my niece had a melanoma removed in her early twenties, leaving a hole you could put an orange in.
I'm sorry if it felt that I wasn't taking your concerns seriously ... what I was saying is that we can only deal with so much 'stuff' at once, but I wasn't suggesting that you ignore it ... what I mean is that you do what you have to do to trigger what has to happen and then you 'put it in the box and put the lid down' until you have to do something else with it.
It is so easy to carry all your worries around in your head and then you can't deal with anything properly and you just feel out of control and that's when panic sets in.
Do what has to be done then put it in a box. ((hugs)) and if you need to rant and unload ... we are here.
How are the builders getting on today?
