Squish The Girls

I know I am 47 years old and this should have been done sooner but it is just one of those things I have just not done for one reason or another. Yesterday I had my first Mammogram.

I have heard all about the procedure in detail from my girlfriends so I went in with an open mind, but of course the tech could read the fear all over my face. Oh well I have never been one to "Be Strong"

Honestly, it was a no biggie and not much worse than any other x rays I have had, I would rather have a mammogram than go to the dentist and now that I said that I could easily pick 10 other things I rather have a mammogram than do.

When I got home my Stevie greeted me with a giant hug and tears in his eyes, Troy, are you getting old? You are having so many tests and it is making me worried.

I told him, better safe than sorry, wouldn't you rather have a test done as routine over waiting until you were worried about something? He agreed and felt better.

Girlfriends, if you are afraid of mammograms, take it from me... Go for it!

I've never been squished, but have thought about it. Did it hurt?

P.S Just got back from Mexico city Monday!! Read about my quarantine on my blog.
