Today I was thinking that I should do a post explaining my absence from the blogging world/social media/internet lately and I didnt know what to post as its sort of a poor excuse but I guess a valid one haha so I drew a picture.
In mid December I found a largish lump on my boobie, I do get cysts all the time so I didn't worry too much but there was something just not right about this lump. My doctor had already left for his Christmas break so I had to wait until mid January to see him. Long story short he sent me for a ultrasound and although they found lots of cysts, there was a small mass above one of them and they recommended I get a further test.
My doctor has looked at the ultrasound results and thinks it looks fine but has sent me to a specialist to get a the tests, I go next Thursday :) I swear this is dragging on forever lol
So basically although I am feeling fine that the results will be okay (positive thinking) the wait is killing me and I just am not in the right mood to do anything let along get online. Which is probably the opposite to what I should be doing, I think people say keep busy but fuck that LOL I am just really tired and want to sleep, which isn't unusual for me haha but normally I can push though it and get shit done.
Above is the quick silly sketch I drew today, I still need to colour it in... Hands are bloody hard to draw btw!!! lol Hopefully this will just inspire one girl to go and check her own breasts. Over the last few months I am amazed that none of my friends check themselves, its so easy and can save your life. I am 35 and have had two friends under 40 pass away from breast cancer, it can happen to young people. We all think we are invincible but sadly we are not but the good news is you can catch these things early if you keep alert and get to know your body :)
For further information on breast cancer you can visit you counties breast awareness website.
There is a great guide HERE on how to do your own self examinations
