Thanks everyone! I just meant by the title that other people might think I'm just completely selfish for even thinking about not doing it, or a small part of me wanting someone else to be the perfect match, lol. I knew you guys would understand!

Susan, that is weird about the article that popped up.

Deanna, that's awesome! Joining the registry was easy, and I was and still am so glad I did it.

Rudi- you summed up my feelings perfectly, totally freaking out but ready to do it if I'm chosen.

I heard back from someone today, and I had to fill out a health questionnaire. I'll keep you updated if I should hear anything else.

We have all been blessed to have this gift to give selflessly to another human being. No need to shop or wrap. I think that the reward for both you and your recipient will outweigh any doubt. I actually think that if you are not chosen you will feel more of a let-down than a relief.

I bet it is like when you are not planning a pregnancy and you have no want or need to have a baby, but then you take the test and when it comes back negative you are actually sad instead of happy. Make sense?

I can completely understand freaking out and going over all of the cons in your head, I would be too. I think that many people would have those feelings. I am sure that when the time comes, if you are chosen, that you will know exactly what is right for you.

Me too.

Let us know what you do decide to do.

Well, I wasn't chosen (or at least I haven't heard anything.) They said you might hear right away, or not for awhile, depending on how soon the transplant is needed. Some of the people still need to go through the radiation, while others are in desperate need right away.
I am relieved but disappointed too. Interesting the way the human mind works.
