I Did It!!


Well, I finally did it! I had a mammogram today. And at my age, I'm embarrassed to admit, that it was my first. :( I have put it off, all these years, because I thought it would be really uncomfortable and quite frankly, just plain embarrassing! But, I got a really nice technician, who made me feel very much at ease. And as far as any physical discomfort, nothing to it.

So, now here is the part where I get preachy. I am working very hard this year at learning how to take care of myself, and putting myself first. Because I have finally figured out, that if I'm not okay, I can't possibly take care of anyone else.

I think all too often, we women don't take care of ourselves, physically, spiritually, or emotionally, because we're busy taking care of everyone else. But, if we don't take care of ourselves, we may not be around for our loved ones. So, if you haven't been taking care of yourself, start today.

AND, if you're 40 or older, and you haven't had a mammogram yet, call your doctor and schedule an appointment. You'll be glad you did.
