    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Biopsy schedule for 28th. sigh. 6 days of chances for me to freak out about the cost and cancel. They should do these things like the wild kingdom, were they just hunt you down, bag you and haul you off and do it, then release you back into the wild.

    hey TCOS,

    I'm sorry you're going through all that. *hugs if okay*
    I kinda understand what you mean with that. It seems to be easier sometimes when you don't know it's coming. Less time to stress. Try to relax as much as you can. I know it's far easier said than done. Take care of yourself.

    I am proud of you for making this appointment. I understand your fears. I truly do. Hang in there and know you are in my thoughts.

    This is so hard. The biopsy will cost $1378 out of packet, plus 350 to have it read. I am FREAKING out about the costs, which is why I canceled it last October.

    My kids both have dentist appts the next day...uggh.

    drowning in medical bills.

    Wish I knew how to work the system. We make just a hair over the line for assistance. Me and my kids are uninsured. Thankfully hubby has insurance.

    Life, why does it have to be so complicated?
