When I created this blog last week I really didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I honestly don't even know who all is reading. But I did know that I wanted to feel free, expressive, and vocal.
You know in Hollywood there are many celebrities that are extremely private. Beyonce is a great example. But there are others like Kim Kardashian or even Jessica Simpson who tweet about everything, talk to the press about their boyfriends, and are not afraid to speak. Well, I fall under that category. The chatty one.
All this to say that a couple months ago I began to have really bad back pains. I finally saw a doctor who mentioned that I may have a weak uterus. My mom's exact reaction was "What?! You need a strong uterus to carry my grandchild!!!" Do you sense the severity of this?
Well, I really didn't worry cause I still needed to have some test done. Why worry when you don't know the exact problem, right? After running some test, my doctor called me yesterday to say that I have an ovarian cyst plus fibroid. I asked her to be specific because Gerson tends to ask a million questions after my doctor visits. And she said "Fibroid are tumors that are benign"
If there's a word I hate is tumor. However, I remained calm cause I sensed she was calm. She actually said that it's known to be a tumor but that I had nothing to worry about.
When Gerson got home, I had literally forgotten about my phone call. It wasn't till later that night that I said :
"By the way, the doctor called and said I have an ovarian cyst"
Gerson : Oh, ok (very casual)
Me : And fibroid
Gerson : Ok (more casual)
Me : Which are tumors
Gerson : Yes, but they're benign
I like to call Gerson a cold blooded doctor cause he never really makes a big deal with certain medical situations. Maybe it's because he's in medical school, or because he worked at a hospital for several years, but it's kind of rare.
But I think sometimes we need to see problems like Gerson see's fibroid... not a big deal.
God has everything under control. And I'm a strong believer that if I do my part, God will take care of His. (The key is doing your part)
So if you find yourself stressing over a little fibroid, understand that it's treatable. Solution-able. Benign. And really NOT A BIG DEAL!
