    Breast Scare

    Bella, you're welcome and I am pretty sure that was all that was. it does that sometimes when I lay on mine a certain way. And I feel you there. Glad your examination went okay! I just had one done a few weeks ago. Lol Sadly I have a swollen lymph node in my armpit but they told me not to worry about it.

    Breast Scare

    Bella and I can relate. I had this scare when I was 19, and am still having it at 20 years old. And I am glad that you are feeling a lot more calm about it.

    Breast Scare

    Bella, it sounds like it did that when you layed down a certain way. If it didn't stay that way I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just keep an eye on it. I know it can be hard. I'm in a middle of a breast cancer scare myself. It isn't easy.

    Carcinophobia fear is ruining my life

    Well the metastasized breast cancer scare is back again! Ugh... a couple of weeks ago I had blood drawn only to find out that they couldn't do a CBC blood test because my blood was clotted and they must of have damaged a red blood cell. They only could tell me that I had high levels of potassium in my blood so now I am scared that I have bone mets... 😢 I really hope this was a fuck up on their end. I hope this isn't accurate. Today I am getting a CBC test done today. Gosh I freaking hope it is accurate but I am so paranoid the high levels of potassium in the blood with still be there or that other things in my blood won't come back normal. I have metastatic breast cancer I just know it... I hate this!! I wanted to be a mother!!! I wanted to be a wife!!! 😭I wish I could not have this stupid blood test done but too late. Ugh. With the swollen lymph node in my armpit as well? Yeah probably metastasis... 😢 I wish I got an ultrasound done on both breasts back in August. Maybe I would of have caught it at stage 3... maybe I'd live until my 90's but that obviously is not gonna happen... maybe the ultrasound missed my "tumor" in the "problem" breast? Maybe I was wrong and my tumor was in the left not a problem breast all along? The same side that got that swollen lymph node there? 😢

    Staph infection worries PLEASE HELP

    Kinda unrelated but I hate this health anxiety. Now because I have the bone pain/occasional abdominal pain, and the respiratory thing with congestion I am worried about meningitis which can kill a person within 24 hours!!! 😣 I am so scared.... I don't have a fever thankfully. Someone please tell me that you have to have a fever with meningitis? I hope this ribcage bone pain is from the gas/dirreaha problem. 😢

    I will be going in on Monday to get that taken care of.

    Mollyfin, You are absolutely right. This all is caused by something completely unrelated. The sepsis was technically ruled out today when I went. I have been upping my water intake. Trying to get a rid of the dehydration. Going to get the UTI treated. Dealing with painful breathing but that could be from a cold thing going around. Abdominal pain, etc. is definitely from gas. Ugh. I hope I feel better soon.

    So I went up to carespot today because it was driving me nuts. So they tried to rule out the flu. There is no flu. They took my temperature and it was 98.6 which is a normal temperature, so this automatically rules out Sepsis. (Until I can have the blood test on Monday, that is.) and my blood pressure and heart rate came back as normal. So I am gonna try to take it easy until then. I ruled it out temporarily which is good at least.

    Well, I wasn't able to go so sadly I have to wait this out until Monday. I am hoping it is just the flu I am dealing with on top of a UTI and a healing wound. Maybe the flu is just going around. I am trying to get better. 😢

    So I am going to the hospital later today. Wish me luck. I feel sicker than a dog... All I'll be thinking about while I am there is my first love, and of coarse, my son Ryan! ❤️ (He's my black cat.)

    Staph infection worries PLEASE HELP

    I still feel very sick this morning... cold and I have the chills... 😢 My urine had bacteria looking stuff in it and was dark yellow almost orange. I drank a lot of water yesterday, so darn... last night it was really hard for me to sleep because my lower back and sides hurt like crazy... I'm really hoping this is from my UTI and not from sepsis. Idk... this makes no sense, why would it hit me a month later? 😕 I don't understand. Wouldn't this have happened when it was fresh and new? Why would it be slow happening and circulating in my bloodstream for a long time before calling issues? *sigh* I wish Monday would just get here already... if I had it my way I would just go up to a walk in clinic to be put on some antibiotics.

    My aunt says that it wouldn't appear later. It would of have happened soon after I got the wound. Sepsis I mean, if bacteria got in there. It works quick. It would of been a day or two after I got the wound. It wouldn't sit doorment and just be like here's Johnny! 🙄 It wouldn't pop up a month later nearly. Sure I had the pins in needles and pain in both legs since the first week I had the sore but dang. That's a slow time for it to become sepsis. That's like nearly a freaking month later. The sore looks pretty healed, for the most part. Oh yeah the sore was an infected hair folicale btw so I could still be dealing with that. I didn't start feeling really unwell until after I got off cexhaphilin or whatever that antibiotic is called. It didn't get a rid of the UTI infection so I sadly have to go back on meds to clear it up. So I haven't been feeling too well over the past few days. But yeah. So tired. Hope I can sleep but still a little uneasy so I am trying to stay calm. I am right though? Sepsis would of have popped up when the wound was fresh? I have an appointment on Monday to get the new antibiotics and a check up. They are gonna see if they can get me on anxiety meds as well! Oh and good news! My heart rate and breathing has gone back down to normal speed. Still dealing with the other uncomfortable issues but hoping that is just from the UTI. Lol

    I'm so tense I can't sleep... or move.... I hope I can get to sleep here soon. Maybe I'll just go to the clinic tomorrow.

    No, if anything I have a low temperature. It's been in 96.2+ range. Not really up to 97 at least, not recently. I have been having diarrhea the past few days. But I just got off my antibiotics for my UTI a few days ago. Monday? Tuesday night maybe? So maybe I am feeling a little under the weather from that. No fever yet though. My aunt, who is a nurse, says that if it was sepsis it wouldn't of have not hit me out of the blue a month later. She says it would of have happened when the wound was still fresh and new. Which was on the 14th of December. She says it would of have happened. After that. Not a month later randomly. Thanks! I actually noticed this started up after this morning. When they told me that they screwed up my bloodwork and couldn't do a CBC blood test because they couldn't get a good sample. I was mad because they never told me this. After that my anxiety went all haywire. I scheduled an appointment with my primary care doctor on Monday to have a CBC test done just to be careful. They are gonna put me on antibiotics since it didn't clear up. They also are gonna see about putting me on anxiety meds. Oh I forgot to mention that I have been really dehydrated lately, even when I was taking the antibiotics. I am trying to find a way to drink more water at work. (I work in fast food.)

    I have an hour or two I think until it has been 47 or 48 hours.
