I do understand where you are coming from.  You are just nervous.  It feels a little !  paralyzing.  BUT, the good news is that you are about to get them checked!!  Good or you.  Try to stay busy the next couple of days!  It's not been cancer previously and there is no reason to suspect it now.  :>)  Other than your anxiety which is going over the top right now.  Take deep, calming breaths.  Come back when you find out that you do NOT have cancer.  If this kind of reaction is your norm or you are having a difficult time functioning, consider that it may be time to begin working on the anxiety to reduce it.  But if this is just an isolated incident, then let's just get to the appointment as calmly as we can (see?  I'm with you now telling you that you can do it and you are okay) . . . Let us know how it goes!!!

Ty your right it would have fallen off by now after that long ty.
Ha, hope it wouldn't have fallen off but I think it will be okay, I really do.  What do you do to work on the anxiety?  Are you interested in any therapy or treatment?
