So, I did it! Today I went for my very first mammogram. I thought the cartoon above was a good depiction of how I felt afterward. Just kidding. It really wasn't that bad. It's one of those things that people talk about and it grows to something bigger and much worse in your mind and then it's not that horrible when it happens. Or at least that was my experience anyway!
It's days like to today that I really appreciate having medical insurance. Although, there are lots of valuable resources available for those without insurance if you know where to look. The Susan G. Koman website has great information available about breast cancer and they are helpful info if you can't afford to get a mammogram. They offer low or no cost solutions on their website, so there is no excuse not to get squished!
