                I know it's scary but if the news is not good the sooner you get checked the easier it is to correct the problem. On the up side, if there's nothing wrong then you won't continue to worry. :blue thumb:

                  Thanks for all your good intentions, I know what's got to be done but I'm seriously private in nature and VERY reserved, wish I'd never let Carol know (not that I could hide it), I promise I will make that appointment....... Scared of Lori!:oucho:

                      Please just do it now Vince there is never a good time to pick up the phone and book.... I expect you will have to wait at least a week for the appointment so just do it.... Please... You will feel better after you have booked it..
                      Please for Carol if nothing else... x

                        @Vince , if you haven't already made the appointment, put an alarm for tomorrow at 9am to make the call, then it's done. :paladin:

                        Just as an example (as it's terribly dangerous and counterproductive to even suggest layman's diagnosis over the internet), a very common reason for a weight loss is thyroid issues, which can be fixed with a few pills. Most of my family has it one way or another.

                        The symptoms are unpleasant, would you really prefer to live with them, and have Carol live with them, plus the anxiety of worrying if it's something deadly? Or get the blood test and the prescription?

                        Go for it man. DO IT 9am TOMORROW. (And you have all the sympathy from another doctorophobic... been there and survived)

                        Life is too precious to waste on worrying about unknown. [​IMG]
