A Booby Update…

A5DF3035-D6BB-4B28-B33D-94FFDD03957B

No, not those kind…

But parts of me (not my feet) might have been a little blue as they got pulled and pushed and squished into the cold glass and metal of the mammography machine yesterday.  Good news, the radiologist did not see anything to cause concern, declaring me momentarily clear and cancer free.  Yay me!!

But as anyone who’s gone through something similar (or maybe has a smidgen of anxiety issues), there’s always a niggling little thought in the back of my mind that they might have missed something or something is there and it’s too small to be seen yet.  I even asked my internist why they don’t just do some kind of scan of my whole body.  She smiled nicely and said in my case it wouldn’t be helpful.

I tell myself to stop the worry, tamp down the crazy and get on with life.  Which I’ve been learning to do pretty well.  I call it my new normal.  But I admit I sometimes need a Xanax — actually, sometimes hubby begs me to take one — to drift peacefully off to sleep…

Seriously, though, life is very good and I’m feeling great!

  4. Great news, Dee! I’m so glad! And I’m happy you’ve been feeling better and more positive too. Anxiety is dreadful – I know it personally. Thank goodness for something to help take the edge off when you need it! All my love to you! ❤️

    1. Thanks, Meg! Hard to believe it’s been 18 months since my diagnosis. I work hard to keep the anxiety in check and its usually okay. I think the check ups just bring it all back. But I’m so good, really!

      1. I can imagine. I dread my mammograms because they always get flagged due to my overly fibrous boobs. 😦 I try to tell myself that’s why they’re still so perky! LOL!

    1. I am doing so well, really. Most of the time I really can let the anxiety go, but sometimes it gets to me. (Boobies and people who appreciate them are pretty important to me, too!) I’m so glad you are back blogging ❤

  7. Good news indeed! If any parts of you are the colour of the boobies feet then I should ask for a second opinion Dee.

    What you are feeling is not only normal, but appropriate. And sensible. Everyone would feel the same.
