Everything is A-OK

Everything went fine at the Radiologist. While the mammogram was uncomfortable, I can not understand why some women freak out and call them painful. I really had it in my head that it was going to HURT. It is weird having your breasts squished down by this tray - but certainly no more painful than labor. After the radiologist looked at the films, he decided that "the girls" looked normal, but they did an ultrasound as well, just to be safe. The u/s tech was joking that women in their 20's and 30's have lots of glandular tissue in their breasts and that's why they didn't recommend mammograms for women until they're 40. She determined that my lump was just lumpy glandular breast tissue - all completely normal for a 32 (oh the horror of being 32 now....) year old woman who has child(ren). So, I've been given a clean set of breasts.

I do have a bacterial infection in the hoo-ha. Wednesday night I went to get my prescription filled and the pharmacist takes the opportunity to tell anyone within a five mile range that my doctor "ordered the LARGE tube". It took all my self-control not to yell back it him "Yessiree pharmacist. My doc did order the LARGE tube of VAGINA MEDICINE. I must have some serious funk going on down there." Really, I don't normally get embarrassed by being a woman. I can talk about my vagina, buy tampons and pads, talk about fertile cervical mucus and the like without being embarrassed...I think he just really got me with the whole "LARGE tube" comment. Why don't men think before they speak about such things. I mean really, what if he was waiting on a certain prescription for a little blue pill to be filled (you know the kind that makes your wife stop banging the gardener) and the pharmacist announced loudly "Wow, I've never seen a doctor prescribe SOOOO many of these before."
