Hi! I'm new here. My name is Cathy and I am 52. I have not been diagnosed with anything yet because I have not been to a doctor. Maybe because I am afraid of what I might hear. My dad died from lung cancer little over seven years ago. Someone read my hand on the day of his funeral, and told me I will died the same way eight years after. I never bothered because I didn't believe. But lately a lot has been happening to me. I am tired quickly, get a lot of pain sometimes in my chest and back, and I keep brining up blood sometimes with mucus on mornings. Also my hair is dropping. I cut it short thinking it will stop. But it didn't. I know I must see a doctor, but I am afraid to go. I have not tell my children anything as yet.
