I had a secret

Have you ever had a secret that you told no one? I had a secret. For about a week. I told no one. Not my husband, my twin, my best friend, no one. Of course God knew, cause he knows everything but I told no one else.

I felt something on my back. About 5 inches below my neck and in between my shoulder blades. I don't know what made me touch or find it but I did. Eventually I decided to look at it. I couldn't see it very well even when I used two mirrors. You know how we girls do it when we're trying to see the back of our hair. I twisted and turned, I sat on the vanity, I put on my glasses but I still didn't know for sure what this oval flesh colored thing was. Then I googled and I googled. Still no answers. I took my daughter to the doctor for a tennis physical. Do I tell him my secret? No, 'cause if it isn't good then my little worry wart will know the secret and I can't upset her so I don't say anything.

Days go by and I know I have to call and tell the doctor my secret. I make the appointment for today because I know my husband will be golfing in the morning. That will be good, I won't have to tell. I go, I tell my secret to the doctor. He looks, he says it is a new mole-I say "I love you." Honestly I did, 'cause in that moment I truly loved him. And for a moment I also loved that mole. Now, not so much. It's just one more I have to go along with the 199 I already have. But it's a whole lot better than any thing I googled.....The End

Haven't we all done that? And know what you must have been feeling....that remote fear that makes you want to know but not know....I am so glad for your relief and so glad you went, too. I hear you about the moles...just keep an eye on them.....whew, now you can relax...

I'm so glad that it turned out to be 'just' a mole! Hate those darned things, but glad that it's just a mole.

Been there, done that! But you were smart enough to get to the doctor! I am so glad it was nothing to worry about!

Oh, what a relief! I get moles too. I also get them checked once a year and sometimes get them removed. They are mysterious little buggers, that can be quite scary. So glad it was just a mole and nothing more.
