I Am Afraid Of Cancer

I've had so many bad pap smears--- and that combined with losing my brother, father, aunt, and grandmother to cancer has me on the edge.  I manage my fear well by eating right (stopped eating meat), exercising regularly, keeping my stress levels down, having fun (woohoo), and making sure I keep up with my annual checkups.   But when the pap results are not good and I need a biopsy---I’m a crybaby, I can’t focus at work, my kids drive me crazy-----all of which stresses me out.  And to go along with that bad pap, I have lower-lower back pain.  I hate this feeling….
