On Tuesday I found a lump in my breast. I got into my doctor that day for a breast exam. She confirmed there is something there that shouldn’t be. Tuesday was a rough day. I cried and worried a lot. Yesterday and today, I have a mostly positive outlook on the situation. I’ve also turned my fears into some very dark humor. I’ve found this is one of the ways I cope. It works for me and keeps me laughing.
Instead of Hammer Time! It’s Mammograma Time! I go for my first mammogram today along with an ultrasound. Then my doctor will decide based on that information if a biopsy is needed.
I don’t know if many of my similar aged friends have been through this or not. Is it common? Or something else we don’t talk about? I’m choosing to be grateful for medicine and doctors and excited for a new experience today. I will make the most of it. If I have titty cancer, I’ll deal with that head on too.
Be sure to make the most of the time you have left with me. I’m kidding. That’s a joke. I’m going to be fine…I hope.
