Okay, seriously we all know this (above picture) is NOT possible, but this was the view I had for about an hour waiting in my oh-so-comfortable paper gown, in an ice cold exam room. Lovely.
Well, come to find out, I tested POSITIVE . . . again . . . for being a girl. So in another year, I guess they'll have to test me again.
The best part is I am healthy. Blood pressure is low, weight is good, no issues, hormone levels normal, no swelling, no pain, no periods (so what is there to complain about really). I don't like the fact that I have to keep going back every year and proving to them that I AM healthy, for a nice doctor bill. But I guess that's what you gotta do.
My real question today is not where I went. What I want to know today is how old were you when you started yearly mammograms? (if you have started) I argued with my OB/GYN today and told him that I didn't want to go until I was 50. I am 45 almost 46 years old and I had one done about 6 years ago. Don't start screaming at me yet . . . there is NO history of breast cancer in my family, and I breast-fed my first child for one year. Starting at 40 years old I think is a little much, but maybe I just wasn't in the mood to go to the "girl" doctor today. What do you think?
