    Hello @alex19 I don't think we've met before but it's nice to talk to you.  I'm so sorry it's under these circumstances  <3

    That must have come as a real shock, do you have anyone who can support you as you go through this?  I think waiting on results makes us all feel vulnerable and wobbly, and what you're feeling will be absolutely natural.  Maybe have a look at this Macmillan webpage on 'Waiting for results' and if there's anything that you want to talk through with those in the know, call their cancer support specialist team on 0808 808 00 00.

    It goes without saying that we are all here for you too, so please do lean on us if you want to talk through any emotions or have a good vent.  Did the doctor say roughly how long you would be waiting?  

    I always recommend a nice cup of tea and a biscuit when times are hard.  And that isn't to dismiss what you're going through at all, or underplay it, but if that or any other treat helps, make sure to indulge  <3

    Take care and please let us know how you get on.

    Hi Willow, it's lovely to hear from you again, but sorry to hear of your Drs concerns. I hope it's not too long until you get your tests, as I guess the waiting is the worst time. Hope you know we're all here to support you in any way we can. Sending gentle hugs.
