Let me reintroduce myself - my name is Sara, 31 and currently 36 weeks pregnant. Have had anxiety/panic for about 10 yrs. Now here is my new challenge - last week while having a routine OB appt my blood pressure was high (I have a family history of high blood pressure) so they kept me to monitor me and baby. While there the docs  ordered an MRI because I was feeling slight numbness/tingling on my left side of my face. Not only did the find my brain but, they found a tumor behind my left ear. While the docs don't think the tumor is cancerous they do have to remove it surgically. So in about 3 weeks I will deliver my son by c-section and then a month afterwards have this surgery. Docs think that I have had this growth for years and with pregnancy hormones it caused it to grow fast. I guess my son is already taking care of his Mama. Anyway I do NOT write this for sympathy (but a nice prayer or 5 million is always nice) I'm come as encouragement...with this challenge I have found the strength I lost that the anxiety took away. I'm not saying I will be sailing around the world but, a little of the old me has come back and she is better than ever, at least I think. Now I'm not saying to get a brain tumor to feel better all I want is for each and everyone of you to remember that you have a strong person in you, all she needs is for you to remember that she is there. Good luck to you all and take care of yourself.

Hi NeNe, I just came upon this post.

By now you must have undergone your surgery? How did it go? How are you feeling?
