Yeah, so, last week I got my yearly mammogram.
I tried to act like it’s all fun and games and no big deal on all the social media channels. See?
The truth is getting a mammogram isn’t a big deal to me, but waiting for the results is. I get a mammogram, and then I wait a week for the results. I usually get a postcard in the mail saying I’m cancer free. For that entire week I play the “what if” game with me. What if I have cancer again? I freak myself out.
I got my mammogram on Thursday. Imagine my horror when I signed into my email this morning only to find an email from my oncologist.
OH MY GOD! He emailed me. The results are bad. That’s why they didn’t send the usual postcard. I started having a panic attack in my cube at work.
But then I opened it …
I’m still cancer free, you guys!
And ladies, get a mammogram. It’s important. I wrote about how easy it is riiight here.
