Definition: anxiety over upcoming text results. A term widely used in cancer circles.
I’m awaiting my first blood test results since my surgery hospital stay. For the most part, I’m feeling great consistently. Hardly any pain though low energy is still a struggle. But that could change after this appointment. What if the cancer is back? What turn will my life take after these blood test results? These questions seep out of my subconscious, spilling into my unsuspecting conscious mind that’s just trying to function regularly. Like, what if I need another surgery? This is what keeps me up at night.
