Today a total stranger grabbed my breasts, shoved them between two plates of glass and squashed the buggery out of them.
And oh the pain: it grabbed me by the mammaries, leaving me a shivering, whimpering mess.
My pain threshold has never been high (hence my aversion to childbirth), but today's mammogram hurt so much I cried out several times, found it hard to breathe and was tempted to ask the radiographer if she was open to bribes.
But with a shocking SEVEN woman a day in NZ being diagnosed with breast cancer (that is not a typo, yes seven women per day in little ole NZ), I realised I had to suck it up.
Three hours later and the poor girls are still aching. I am now going to self medicate with chocolate because if there is pain, then there must be Whittaker's Dark Almond chocolate.
Poor you hun but good on you for doing it! You're right our breast cancer rates are shocking so well done...ReplyDelete
