My mother did her best to design my wedding dress to hide the difference in my breast. No one could tell that I was uncomfortable. After the wedding I had another follow up with my doctor, he stated that once I have children that my breast should even out. I had just got married and of course I wasn’t thinking about having kids at this time. It took us 4 years to get pregnant with our first child, which the doctors also stated that I would probably not be able to have children, but the God I serve said different. 14 month later I gave birth to our second child. Still after being pregnant twice my breast continued to grow. I felt like I was going to live with this for the rest of my life. Five long years had gone by with no changes, so we decided to get another opinion concerning the noticeable difference and increased growth in my breast. This doctor seem to believe at first sight that there was reason for concerns. The doctor wanted to perform a biopsy of both breast to determine exactly what was going on. I wasn’t nervous to have the biopsy done, because we needed answers and I knew God was in control of whatever the test results would show. The procedure wasn’t pleasant at all I was very sore and uncomfortable for a couple of days. The doctor did confirm there were early cancer growth cells forming.
What’s holding you back is the thought of something holding you back. Just release the fear and go for it. Allow yourself to be Happy.
My story begins around the age of 19. I was placed on birth control pills after having a procedure performed on my cervix. About a month after having the procedure done and using the birth control pills I noticed my breast started to grow. Most girls would love for their breast to grow if they were flat as a pancake like myself. But the growth became more than normal and then one of them started to grow even faster than the other. At that time I was told it was normal to experience some growth in my breast when taking birth control pills. I thought maybe they’re right and I was just over thinking it. But was I really over thinking it? My ex husband at the time said it will be okay don’t worry. Of course he didn’t have a problem with it because my breast were bigger than before. My mom said don’t worry about it things will workout. I tried to act like it didn’t bother me but I was so depressed because my self image was completely changed. My ex husband and I were planning our wedding the same year this all happened. I tried to pretend that I was doing ok with this but in fact I was just miserable and didn’t feel beautiful at all.
Don’t be afraid to stand out. God created you to be different then others, so let your unique light shine.
