So, I am 35 years old and got my first mammogram today. I have worked myself up into a tizzy the last couple of months since this was scheduled. My life was SURROUNDED by this date. And when it was this week...EVERYTHING was, "Well, that is 2 days before my mammo" or "Same day as my mammo." Do you think I'm psychotic? Sistas!! It is not too terrible. They take 4 mug shots, one of each facing forward, and then a profile of each. The little bit of pain and discomfort is over very quickly. And I'm told by lots of people who went to school a long time and did lots of research and wrote articles and stuff that this is important for us girlies to do...the earlier something is detected, the better. And when nothing is detected, we can rest assured....KNOWING that nothing was detected. So, my encouragement to all the ladies who happen upon this post...schedule the appointment....and take care of you. And afterwards, head to Starbucks....
