they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

last tuesday, right after running on the treadmill, my neck started to feel terrible. it has progressively gotten worse.

just one side. under my skull on the right. i can't turn my head to the left. checking my blind spot while driving is nearly impossible.

and then friday night, i started to have trouble breathing. feeling like i'm not getting enough oxygen to the places that need it.

of course i've diagnosed myself with a million life-threatening conditions. thank you, internet.

but i've also decided it's probably nothing to worry about.

what i'm really nervous about is the results of two biopsies i had done last thursday.

    Ok, see this is not something to be all "I'm gonna write about this a lil' bit, but not in detail, and then leave it hanging out there, because people only need to know part of this stuff, if any at all." NO. This is when you tell us what the hell you're talking about!!! Because, SCARED NOW. ::boos::

    Can you get a massage for the neck issue? And also? I'll be thinking of you, and praying that everything works out well with those biopsies.

    sorry. you're right.

    i went in to have my moles checked and she biopsied two right away. (cut one all of the way off.) i'm freaked out because the one that was removed was black. that's not a good sign.

    If it's any consolation, I've had several, several moles removed and biopsied (many of which were black), and all came back just fine.

    Have you thought about seeing a chiropractor for the neck issue?

    Thank you! ::phew!::

    I'm sure everything will be ok. Leo has had around 5 of those suckers removed from his back (some were pretty deep), and my dad had a basal cell (I think that's what it was called...) removed from his forehead once, even!

    Try not to worry too much. :)

    one came back with "bad changes" so i have to go have more skin removed to try to get clean margins. freaking out over here.
