Ovarian cancer?

I Had been having some strange symptoms. They had me more worried about being pregnant than anything, because of the fact that my tubes are tied. I made a doctor's appointment because I just didn't feel right. These "pregnancy" symptoms began to feel less like such and more like something else. WebMD, is a website that if you search enough symptoms you will think you are dying of some rare known disease that has no cure, so use it wisely. Playing with that app or website is like playing Russian roulette with blanks no matter what you tell yourself you are going to think you are dying. Anyway, I had my ultrasound today and I have no idea what it said, the lady would not tell me. So then Google became my friend as I became a medical student. I did find a very useful site; at least I think I did, that helped me understand a little about what I did see and understand from the answers she did give me. So based on what I saw and comparing notes and pictures from the web I may have ovarian cancer. That is a scary thought. I'm 29 years old turning 30 this June. I haven't looked it up but so far I've read that the life expectancy after treatment for ovarian cancer is five years meaning I wouldn't get to see any of my babies graduate or even turn 16 possibly. I did find out that there are symptoms that don't  guarantee someone has ovarian cancer but is something to see your doctor about.
·Fatigue
·Bloating
·Pelvic/stomach pain
·Frequent urination
·Decreased appetite/feeling full quickly after not eating very much
·Larger than normal belly
·Irregular period

There are other reasons for such symptoms. It is always best to consult your doctor with any concerns.
I have to wait a week to find out my results I pray that God gives me patience, and that someone finds this informative.

******I am not a medical professional any medical concerns you may have should be discussed with your doctor*****

Get Ready

I was walking at work one day when I heard a small still voice say "get ready". It stopped me in my tracks because there was no one else around other than myself. Get ready? Get ready for what? "Get ready". In my heart, I knew what it meant but I was and somewhat am not so much reluctant but anxious about what was ahead of me. 

Me Too Transparency

I want to be able to say that I've never been out and out raped, but at the end of the day no means no and I said it; I said no. It's moments like those that live in your mind and don't go away. You keep replaying them until you've

Holes In The Wall

I wish this were my wall. I want so badly to just punch and punch and punch until every emotion, every hurt is gone from my body. The realization that today a year ago was the last time I spoke to Justin has set in and I haven't been able to stop crying. There is no bad to remember. Only good, and the more I focus on remembering the good and trying to find peace within it the more pain I feel. I've come full circle with my grief and I'm stuck at anger. I want to understand. I want to know why. I need to know why, and the answer is just not there. Why can't I just grieve on the one day? The day he died? Why must I cry now?

I'm so guilt-ridden for all the things I didn't do when I had the chance. I'm guilt-ridden for loving so soon after his death. I feel like there should have been a time period in which I... I don't even know. At this point, I feel like pushing everyone away. Staying to myself and not letting anyone in. Not just temporarily but permanent…
