Sitting in the otolaryngologist (ENT specialist) office… waiting for the result of a tongue biopsy.. had a large bump which was becoming a concern. A million thoughts.. what if it was something I could not deal with.. how will I break the news to my wife and young children. What will be the treatment options.. Can I hold back telling my family and friends.. till a more opportune time and place...would I have the strength.. in myself.. how will my children react. Results of my biopsy came back negative.. benign scar tissue. No cause of concern. Got thinking.. we all pass though such instances during one time or other.. surely we cannot disclose such issues in public.. but a safe anonymous social network.. enabling people to disclose, connect and get strength and support from other individuals who are in similar situation.
