There's been stuff happening in my life that I felt the need to share on my blog. It's personal, but it's been on my heart and I think writing about it on here might be a good way to get it out. Two weeks ago I was getting ready for bed and decided to do a self breast exam because I hadn't done one in a while. To my surprise I found a lump. I had a consultation at a clinic within the week and was referred to an imaging center for an ultrasound. The results of the ultrasound came back as a probable benign fibroadenoma. It was recommended that I get a fine needle biopsy and probably get it removed. The next step for me is another consultation with a specialist this coming Thursday afternoon.

Surprisingly, I'm not really worried about all of that. What I am worried about is that I don't have any health insurance. I called the specialist and the initial consultation is over $300. That's about what I already dished out for the initial clinic visit and the ultrasound. I'm thankful I have a job so I haven't had to go further into debt (yet). But I'm so discouraged because I have been working my butt off to get out of debt and when I finally start making progress, something like this happens. I know God is going to provide, but at the same time, I'm scared out of my mind. I'm 25 years old and living at home. I really don't want to be 26 and still living at home because I can't support myself. It's ridiculous.

Please be praying for me as I take the next steps. I'm so overwhelmed with work, school and now doctor appointments. Pray for peace. I know God will be there and that He will provide, but Satan is working his best on me right now. Thank you friends for all your love, support and prayers.

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. Psalm 28: 7
