I LOVE Your Boobs!

Now that I have your attention, 
I want to thank you for stopping by. 

Today is the last day of the month. 
Tomorrow morning is a good time to do a breast exam when you are in the shower.

You see I do love your boobs. . . but not near as much as you do or other people in your life.

And more importantly, deeper than the physical appearance of your boobs, is your inside health.
The people in your family need you!
 (You know that every time you get sick and they can't function without YOU!)

Get to know your boobs to see what feels normal and what doesn't, and do it at least once a month. The first day of the month is a good day to remind yourself to do it. If you feel a lump or something weird, don't hesitate to call your doc. They will let you know if  you're feeling just tissue or if it is something abnormal. 

I have fibrocystic boobs so everything feels like a bag of pebbles. It's much harder for me to feel if there is a normal bump or a mysterious lump. 

Thank you for stopping in! 
Now don't forget to do your breast exam in your next shower or bath. 
And remember. . . I love love your boobs!

  1. Thank you for this boost. I, too, have lumpiness. Soo hard to tell anything. But knowing that someone else will do the exam tomorrow will remind me to do the same.

  3. Good job, Patty...
    My sister is a breast cancer survivor, and instead of motivating me to schedule those appointments, it makes me too scared to go.
    Your post was the perfect motivator (and it made me laugh too!)
    Thanks for being a good bloggy buddy!

  4. Why are people so 'serious' about the words used but not about the content? I think you made an excellent choice. Remember the "I got squished" campaign, or whatever it was? The point was to stop making breast exams something that were scary, secret and wrong. Ignoring reality and living in the 'I'm too embarrassed to take care of myself' stage is much worse. You just be you and smile through your junk/hate mail. Unfollow if you must, people-- even your grandmother had boobs. It's true. ;)
