I've had this mole on my back . A few months ago, I realized that it had become some sort of a scaly mass . The scales will fall off and bleed and the process starts all over again . But in the last couple of weeks , it has gotten larger and just looks nasty . I went to see my doctor for a regular checkup and showed him . He did not like the looks of it and today I'm going to see a dermanologist . On my referral my doctor has written melanoma . So, now I'm upset, afraid and every other emtion you can think of that has to do with just being scared . I went to Web MD and there is a picture of what mine looks like and it is melanoma better known as skin cancer .
Today, I will have a biopsy . In two weeks, they will be cutting it out and then depending upon how deep the cells have gone, it will either be topical chemo or radiation .
I blame myself for this as years ago, everytime I was going to WDW , I went to the fake n bake bed . I had a beautiful tan , but in the process I ended up with this . I could really use a hug and some pixiedust . Thanks in advance
I'll let you know how I make out . My appt . is at 2:15 today .

I'm sending every ounce of :pdust: I can lay my hands on for you Tinker. It's the really good stuff so hopefully optimism will be one of those emotions you will be felling right now. :hug2:

:hug2: You know, we can't really beat ourselves up over past mistakes, as we can't do anything to undo them (and we all make them). We can only make more educated choices now. I hope that it all turns out well.

Thank You Claire & foreverducky .
I started work yesterday . Well, actually I was called into sub . But it is the pre school that I got the Head Teachers position . Its a new center and just waiting for more enrollment . This one little boy that has a behavior problem, really took to me . Two hours after I was there , he was saying Debbie . The director said, I am impressed, he has been here 6 months and hasn't even said my name .
Needless to say, I felt good about it and now this .
I cried last night and told my DH, I finally got my life back , doing what I was meant to do and now this .

Thank You, MP , I didn't mean to make it seem like this is it . I meant if it is the worse case scenario, that after just getting a good job, I may need to go through some procedures that may cause me not to work . :hug2:
Thank You mumof 2 and Isafari .

Tinker, growing up in southern California, all of us baked our bodies--and all of us have to be alert for the potential adverse effects. It was considered healthy at the time. :shrug:

Sending you pixiedust for the best possible results. :hug2:

Thanks, Everyone ! I was very relieved . Was quite tired from the procedure . Not sure what nitrogen does to the body, but I crashed hard . I was asleep and the best sleep without aid in a long time . Nice Disney Dreams, too . Thanksa, Becca ! Also we went from WDW to DL after the nuptials , what a dream . LOL
