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?

My friend Mark referred to this shot as "mammoGLAM."

My friend Mark referred to this shot as “mammoGLAM.”

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 …

mammogramHoly crap!I almost cried in my cube I was so relieved.

I’m still cancer free, you guys!

And ladies, get a mammogram. It’s important. I wrote about how easy it is riiight here.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Fantastic news! Based on all the jokes I’d heard, I expected something much, much worse of my first mammogram. It was fine, and the comparative peace of mind would have been worth it even were it as bad as i’d imagined.!
