Pain and Suffering--it's sucks being a woman

OK--I'm all for the Save the Tatas campaign and such, but there is NO WAY IN HELL that I am willingly having another mammogram!  That shit hurts!!!!!!!!

It was quick and I guess the tech was good, but seeing as I have been "blessed" in the boobage department, there was no way I way getting out of there pain free. 

It's SO not fair!  We women birth the children, take the birth control (which involves yearly invasion of our lady bits) and now I have to get my boobs smashed in the torture chamber?  Men invented ALL of this crap I tell you. 

Why don't they have to do anything?????  Yeah, they are SUPPOSED to go get check ups--but no one MAKES them--no one threatens to withhold their birth control prescription if they don't come in and get checked out.  (hmmmmm, could I threaten to close up "the cookie shop" if he won't go to the dr?--well, that would only hurt me too I guess).  It's just not right!  Maybe they should have to have a "turn and cough" check up of their own every year to get a BEER license or a GOLF license--that would get them wouldn't it.

The tech showed me my boob shots--kind of interesting, I didn't see anything out of the ordinary, but then again, who am I?  She did say--"Oh, don't worry, but now that we have gone all digital, the majority of people get called back after their baseline to get additional screening--just because we don't know what your boobs are supposed to look like"  W.T.F.??????????????  This is supposed to give you a BASELINE of what my boobs look like--if you don't see anything out of whack--then leave me the fuck alone until next time--if something changes, we'll worry about it then. 

I am just so sick off all this Dr/hospital/testing stuff--I'M OVER IT!  Blech!

OK--so it has been almost a month since I had my bloodwork done and stopped taking the Lipitor.  I had not heard back from my Dr., so I put in a call to the office to get the results--guess what--they had not gotten them back!  I go into panic mode--seeing as I had been off the Lipitor for a month now--what if I had to have the bloodwork done again--Oh boy, I'd be in trouble.

Well, I called and the office had to call and get the results from the testing facility themselves--they had ti, but could not give it to me directly--WTF--It's my bloodwork--idiots.  Anyheew.  The office gets the info and calls me back....

Mrs. Lurker?  Yes, I say--whatever you are doing--KEEP IT UP! Your bloodwork came back AMAZING!  My total Cholesterol is 134, the triglycerides are at 124 and my CK (Whatever the hell that is is 43).  The only thing is that my iron is a touch low--but nothing to worry about.  Sigh............

So, I guess the stupid Lipitor did what is was supposed to do.  What do I do?  I still have the script I filled before I decided to go off the stuff--so do I take it and see if the side effects come back?  Or do I just keep up with the Fish oil , vitamin C and the fruits/fiber I have been eating????  I know she will want to run more bloodwork at my appointment in June---if I skyrocket back up, she will know I quit taking the stuff.  I really wish I could have bloodwork done and see where I am at right now with just my diet changes, but that 's not going to happen.  What to do, what to do...............

Next up in my medical world?   MAMMOGRAM TIME!!  Ugh--I have not had one yet and I dread it with everything I am--my mother and grandmother NEVER have had one.  I decided I am going to have this ONE and then push it off for as long as I can.  Cancer doesn't run in my family (except for my Dad's rare and weird thing he has going on)--it's our hearts that get us in the end--and I'm working on that.  Why do I have to have my boobs smashed too??  UGH!
