Glass Half Full
I just got one of the scariest calls I’ve ever had the misfortune of receiving. My pap smear results exposed massive irregularities in my cervix and so, I’ll have to go in for a biopsy soon.
I am so thankful to my local clinic for providing me with free health care, as I’ve never had health insurance. In order to obtain the biopsy in the first place, I’ll have to go in next week for an appointment to process paperwork to be referred to an outside specialist. My nurse has been so wonderful and has been both kind and helpful. I am so grateful and that’s where the glass half full bit comes in. I don’t know how I’d afford any of these services in the first place.
Ladies, I can’t stress enough how important is it to go and get your pap smears. It’s a good practice and is your first defense in early detection!
Worst case scenario, we discover the development of cervical cancer, best case scenario, the biopsy will reveal that my abnormalities are benign, or I can be treated successfully.
Please wish me luck…
Your scared but optimistic,
