Nymeria practices Constant Vigilance


Nymeria

Recommended Posts

I'm continuing with the Hogwarts theme, even though I might not be around much over this next challenge.  This time, it's going to be a very simple challenge.

 

constant-vigilance.jpg

 

1. Do something to improve my pulling power or grip strength every day. 

2. Do something to improve my flexibility every day.

3. Do something to improve my computer skills every day.

4. Do something to help my mental well being every day.

 

None of these really need to be much.  I just want to stay on track with doing at least a little bit.   Otherwise, I'm doing parkour class on Saturdays, Silks class on Saturdays, parkour open gym on Tues (when possible), with hopefully some strength yoga every Sunday and a strength session every Thursday.  I also have to tangle with spring break, my son's birthday, my husband's birthday, some computer stuff I'm doing for the parkour gym, a huge science convention (just attending, but it will clog a weekend), and a ton of kids' activities.

Bleh.  So far, I haven't done much of anything.  :hopelessness:



Monday, I had a routine mammogram, and I got a call back for more images and maybe an ultrasound.  The odds are highly likely that everything will be fine, but I've been on the anxiety spiral ever since (especially after consulting with Dr. Google  FWIW, the verbiage used was "possible architectural distortion".  Actual architectural distortions are generally bad.  I'm not sure what the "possible" part means).  I will have a follow up scan tomorrow morning, providing that the snowstorm doesn't cause everything to be closed/canceled.  

I'm about to do some exercising now, so hopefully I can get back on track.

The waiting between the phone call and getting to the second exam has got to be miserable. I hope everything works out ok.

2nd exam complete, and biopsy ordered.  The doctor really wasn't telling me much of anything.  Biopsy will be Monday morning, and I'll probably get the results around next Friday.  Bleh.   I have to remind myself that what they found is small, and that 80% of breast biopsies end up being benign.

Did parkour class and silks yesterday.  Both were good classes and helped me get my mind off of things a bit.  My energy levels were a bit low, but it's more due to the anxiety/not eating/poor sleep.

 

I'm actually doing a bit better mentally.  While the radiologist seemed to think cancer is likely, it could easily be DCIS, which is technically a pre-cancer and

very treatable.  Even if it ends up being worse than that, for the most part, it all sounds very treatable and not too awful.  I'm cycling a bit between feeling anxious/overwhelmed and feeling optimistic.  At least I know that by this point, I'm fine with surgeries and surgery recovery. ;)

Biopsy was this morning.  The radiologist and nurse were way more upfront than the last one, and they're 99% sure that it's Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.  So, yeah.  I'll be joining Rurik in the "life crapping on me" camp.  On the positive side, both the radiologist and nurse seemed confident that everything looked early stage and very highly treatable.  I personally know 2 women my age who've gone through the whole breast cancer and treatment thing, so I already have a bit of a support network to reach out to. 



 

Bleh.  I was expecting to be super busy with normal life stuff.  Now, I'm not even sure I'll have the bandwidth to deal with all of my kids' things.

I'm somewhat keeping my shit together, but I haven't slept for the last 3 or so days. :(  I've read far too many horror stories on the internet (along with many, many, very positive stories).  Bleh.  I'm hoping that I can at least muster up enough motivation to take a long walk today and maybe do some yoga.  I keep reminding myself that the radiology/biopsy nurse seemed sure that it would be completely curable.

A nurse isn't going to say something like that unless she is  really confident.

I'm so sorry you're going through this Nym.  I'm glad you have a network to reach out to. My grandma and my aunt are both survivors so while I don't know what it's like I can empathize with how mentally taxing this can be. It sounds like it's the best case scenario for what it is. So many internet hugs from me!!! <3

Nym, this is going to sound a little strange, but when you were a child, and feeling scared, what would make you feel better?

Still waiting.  I should get some results today.  But of course, those results are likely to just spawn even more tests and even more waiting.
