Here's a funny story related to my A&P course, we learn allllll about the body, how it works, where the parts are, the medical names, the whole shebang. I went for my yearly check up at the gyne the other day and as I was walking out I noticed a little model of a uterus sitting on a counter. I thought to myself, oh look, there's the fimbriae! It made me giggle to myself because I would never have cared what the name of that teeny tiny part near the ovaries was until I had to study it for a test :)
On the topic of the gynecologist, let me just take a moment to share the importance of annual check ups. It's critical for your health, so even though you can most likely think of ANYTHING else that's more fun, it's a necessity of life. Take the time to take care of yourself! Further on that note, I am going for a mammogram. I am only 31 years old, which is young for a mammogram, there is no cause for alarm, (I believe) I've had a little bit of pain on and off in my left breast, it's different from typical hormonal pains. I checked it out with a self exam, my doctor checked it out the other day, we both found nothing, however he feels to be safe, it's wise to go get it checked out with a mammogram. I am thankful for the opportunity to have a doctor who cares enough to make sure I am in the clear. I am praying it's nothing, I feel confident it's nothing, but it's worth being checked out. So there you have it, another random post via Karrie! Enjoy your day!
