Mammogram

Just had my letter in the post really looking forward to 11th December such a treat to be crushed again although not sure how that works now I'm almost flat chested on one side.

Hope you all keep your appointments as uncomfortable as it is I wouldn't be sitting her now if I had avoided my appointments.

I am due for my last routine one next April, I think it sensible to keep the appointments, even though it isn't a comfortable experience.

We don't get them after the age of 70. I think we could if we offered to pay for it. The government doesn't want us to live too long.....

Don't have them any more, too old now.
Men designed those torture machines, if a woman had they'd have rounded corners & be a different shape.

That horrible 'shelf'- thing underneath always hurts my ribs when they make you lean into it too.


Good luck Julie.
