Argh! I know they are the smart thing to do, something we shouldn't put off, and it is a great way to ease one's mind. But yikes, what an ordeal! Wouldn't it be great if it could be like in Star Trek, and "Bones" could just run a scanner the length of our bodies and ta da - instant results. And we wouldn't even have to remove our clothes. Sometimes I think I wouldn't mind so much, if I was, say, Heidi Klum, or Jennifer Aniston. I bet they don't even feel the need to wear the paper outfit. There is not a wrinkle or hair out of place. Me? I need TWO paper outfits, a blanket and I want to keep my socks on....LOL And of course we are all nervous, so our blood pressure goes way up, you regret you didn't use the restroom when they offered you the chance and now even tho you schedule these visits in the cold winter, you start to "glow" like mad! The doctor enters and always asks, "How are you?" And if I were honest, I would say, "Very uncomfortable, self-conscious, and I really hope my lunch isn't going to cause me any gastric upset!" I will be very happy today, after 5 o'clock. By then I should be back in my clothes, wandering around the parking garage looking for my car, and desperately needing a strong cup of coffee or better yet, a stiff drink. I can then cross off one more thing on my to-do list and relax, at least for another week or two. Coming up, the Mammogram. Argh!
