Hello, my friends. I am coming to you a bit later this Monday. Today was Mammogram Day! (Hence, the lovely picture of me without a stitch of makeup and the slightly disturbing look on my face.) I used to absolutely fear this day. If you have read here for a while, you may recall that I suffer from OCD and Health Anxiety. Mammograms are at the top of my list when it comes to triggers. However, through the years, I have worked hard with my therapist to recognize that I am choosing to get a mammogram. I don't HAVE to go. I am choosing to go. I am doing it as preventive health care. Do I enjoy it? Nope. Do I still get apprehensive about it a few days prior? You bet. I schedule my yearly female appointment on the same day so my doctor can discuss the results with me. And thankfully, today, all was good!
I am home now, showered, in my cozy clothes, and snuggled on the couch. There may have been a McDonald's Dr. Pepper on the way home, along with a prayer of thanksgiving. Have a cozy evening, my friends. I plan on visiting with you this afternoon!
