I have one more health situation (on top of the usual CD and the recent pap test that will hopefully be normal next time) that I need to deal with but have put off. I have developed a tiny cyst and need to go to the dermatologist. I feel silly about how it got there... it started when I was going thru a bad patch with my CD and lying around a lot watching TV... I had this bad habit of folding my pillow under my neck and the lower part of my head on the back... and one day there was a bump when I folded the pillow under my head... pretty sure this little nuisance is the result of my laziness but of course worried about having to deal with it. The truth is that it's been there a long time (I won't say how long) and I have ignored it, but I know that's an irresponsible thing to do and want to deal with it.
In spite of any anxious reaction I might get, I'm really thinking about asking my parents first whom they would recommend as a doctor for this. I haven't seen a dermatologist in years, since I last had a mole removed or something, but they've both had a number of little abnormalities removed/treated at different times in recent years. I want to get this thing healed and move on.
I've got to figure out how to face problems more constructively than this... expecting the worst all the time is getting old fast.
Has anyone else ever had this particular kind of skin problem? Can you tell me about your experience?
