I went to the doctor yesterday. It was a routine appointment and I went in not expecting much. I am amazed at how one word can change your life. My doctor said he “had some concerns” but not to worry…yet.
My family history shows that this is not a complete surprise. My mother had one at 45, my aunt is in the process of getting one. My cousin just had one and she’s younger than I am.
I had the sudden urge to scream at him, “BUT I’M ONLY 34!” I understand that women have this done everyday. I also understand that there are worse things that can happen.
I don’t know why this is so upsetting to me.
