The silver lining in a passing storm

To those who think life is bad and they feel like giving up or even if they aren't having the best of times I have a story for you.
Last month I went to the doctor to get a lump near my throat checked out, I was told that it was thyroid cancer. I decided to get a second opinion so I requested an appointment with a close family doctor in my home town, it was scheduled for October 17.
In that time I felt like doing something not many have done, I decided on starting a micro-nation, And I did just that I established the micro nation of The Republic of Ertenia.
On the 17th I was told by my doctor that he wanted to have an ultrasound done of the lump, yesterday the ultrasound showed that it was a stray lymph node that had swelled because I had a cold.
What I am getting at is that just because things get tough or you are told something that upsets you doesn't mean you should give up, if anything it should motivate you to push forward and do something special to prove to if no one else but yourself that you are strong enough to make it through that rough patch in your life.

    What a coincidence! Yesterday I went to the doctor for a lump in my neck. He told me it was just a swollen lymph node from an infection. Still, what are the odds?
