      Take a deep breath. You must have a million things going through your head right now. It might help to prioritize things. Lean on your doctors right now, things will begin to make sense to you, then you will know what questions to ask. Keep a note pad with you and write down thoughts, questions, vent, etc. That will get some things off of your mind. And remember, us What Nexters are here for you.

      Try to bring someone with you to your appointments b/c your mind is going to be going in about a million directions and half the time you won't remember what you even discussed once you get out of your appointment. I also agree that if you have any questions that you really want answered to write them down in advance b/c trust me you will completely forget them when you are there. The next piece of advice that I can give you is to just rely on those closest to you for support and encouragement and try not to deal with it on your own and definitely check out others posts on here. Many of us have gone through what you are going through and know how you feel, so use us as your added support system and know that we are also here for you! Good Luck to you

      I have Stage IIIB Nodular Melanoma from using Tanning Beds. I never was a sun worshiper either, but using tanning beds before I went to the islands for vacation. Bring somebody with you to your appointments or make sure you write things down. They say so much and it's easy to forget what they say because you hear that word CANCER and everything goes out the window. Get a second opinion too. If you don't feel comfortable with the out come. Good Luck.
