I’m a Guest Contributor today on the Reno Moms Blog sharing Why a Facebook post got me off my rear to make my annual mammogram appointment. Did you get your mammogram this this year?
For me, the anxiety started last week as I looked ahead on my calendar. My annual mammogram was coming up. It’s not the squishing and smashing and pulling I detest, rather it’s the unknown. When it comes to health, especially my own, it’s not what I can see and feel that gives me anxiety, it’s what I can’t see, and waiting for results that eat me up. I have no reason to believe anything should go wrong. I do self exams, although not as often as I should. I have no family history of breast cancer, both my mother and grandmother tested negative for the BRCA genes, and I don’t have dense breast tissue. What scares me is that I know or have friends who know someone exactly like me who found out they had cancer as as result of their mammogram.
