Not in the least.. and you shouldn't feel like you are in the wrong if you are scared. The fear is a natural response to the unknown.. which we've all faced at one time or another....
***hugs*** .. just sorry that you are going through this without the support of the people you've shared it with. You tell people in hopes that they will assist in your coping with it and then you end up with grief.
And as to your pap being abnormal in 3 months... depending on my current Drs attitude I've either heard "well it was missed because there is always a chance of false negatives" OR "well you've been getting yearlies so it really DID develop into a pre-cancerous condition that quickly". Meh!!!
No one call tell you one way or the other on this one.. sad but true
For your sis to be a midwife she sure seems....*my mamma always told me if I don't have something nice to say, to not say it at all*.
Then again like you said, birthin' babies does not a cancer specialist make!!! I had to reread your first post and I do have to chuckle at the comment you made that "she knows enough about these things to know she is fine". Kinda funny, considering how most pre-cancerous conditions that are found using a pap are asymptomatic - call my crazy!!!!
Anyway ***HUGS*** -- go with your gut instinct no matter what it tells you... like I said - you know right for you...
p.s. for anyone else - this gives you permission to kick me in the butt - now if I could only take my OWN advice
