Being that my daughter depends on me fully and I have to be not only her mother I have to be a her doctor and nurse her counselor and a good example of a mom and woman. I have neglected myself through the years. Being a parent means there will be times that your wants and needs will be put aside.
I have neglected my health. I’m so worried that if something happen to me and God forbid that I have to be taken care of, Who will be there to take care of my daughter and I. I know for a fact that I need to go to the doctor and get checked out. Truth is I have knot and I say knot because the word lump scares me, but its in my right breast.
I have a history of getting boils in my armpits so I just passed it off as one. It’s getting bigger and now my breast has become very dark in that area. Like many others in the U.S. I dont have health insurance. At this point I could care less about that. I know that in order to continue to raise my daughter and be here for her I have to take care of myself. I have family on both my Mom and Dad’s side that has had breast cancer so that is what worries me the most.
Scared out of mind at the moment….. Tomorrow I’m going to make an appointment. I cant put it off any longer, 2012 is on the way and I have so many wonderful things planned. I’m going to continue to pray and keep my Faith, If you have the time please say a small pray for me.
