For those of you who do not follow me on LinkedIn, I call myself a pretty active mortgage professional who thrives on connecting and building relationships in this industry. I took a step back for a few months to where people that know me began to ask where I have been. Sadly I was not sipping Mai Tais on an island.
In November I started feeling some discomfort in my neck, pressure when I talked, and a little more tired than normal. I blamed it on one of the other few ailments I have or stress. Who isn’t stressed!? Went to the doctor and she felt something on the right side of my throat so she sent me off for an ultrasound.
So, I go just to check the box. Yup. They found a few nodules — no big deal … everyone has nodules, right? So she sent me off to another doctor, who then sent me for a biopsy: people have them all the time. Heck I’ve had three biopsies over the years. They are usually nothing. Well the biopsy wasn’t favorable this time. Ughhh big sigh and lots of tears!
