“Who does she think she is?”
I'm a symmetry-challenged Baby-Boomer, an artist, writer & closet geek with a day job as a healthcare clinician. In 2008, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thus far, I've lived to complain about it -- and there's a lot to complain about, in the healthcare system & in the rampant merchandising of this disease. Change does not happen in silence, so I choose to speak out & question the status quo, with gusto, soul-searching, analysis & research, in the hope that it might help. A little skepticism is healthier than a lot of disillusionment.
Now, I like to think I provide solid information on this blog. But nothing you read here can replace seeing your doctor if you need medical help. By all means, read a little first so you can ask good questions. But then go get help so you can come back & tell me how it went. Just take good care of yourself. I need you to come back & tell me what a fabulous job I'm doing.
