Way back in 2011, I selected "health" as my one little word. It served me well, as I got into shape and became stronger and healthier. I made this journal with several intentions to become healthier. I did pretty well on most of them, but there were two that I ignored: find a doctor I like and get caught up on my "tests."
Well,this year, a mere four years later, I finally got around to those two very important tasks. I found a doctor I like and trust, and she set me up with all those scary tests. I am happy to report that the mammogram, PAP, and sugar level tests all came back fine. My blood pressure, cholesterol and pulse rate are all great! Today I went to have all my odd looking moles checked and had one removed. I created an art journal page with Tim Holtz's crazy birds stamps to congratulate myself on overcoming my fears and getting these tests done. And I'm hoping that I won't let these tests go so long before I do them again. I'm wondering if I'm the only one who puts these tests off for fear of a bad result. I know it's irrational behavior at its worst, but I can't believe I'm alone. Am I?
