yes, for a small fee the Tornado will decorate yours as well.
Today, May 10, is National Women’s Check-up Day.
It’s the day to set aside all of our fears (“what if there’s something wrong? I’d rather not know!” “what if my doctor looks at me and thinks: Good G-d has she *gained* weight since last visit?”) and love ourselves enough to take care of the only body we have.
It’s the day set aside for us to focus on SPEAKING UP and being heard.
It’s the day to take the time and make a list of all the questions we wanna ask our health care practitioners so we don’t forget anything in that hurryinandhurryout fifteen minutes we have their undivided attention.
Hell, print out this checklist for health if you want (I did), grab a hi-lighter & have at it!
Mark the things you have questions about.
Mark the tests you wanna ask about.
Mark the screenings youve been remiss in getting.
Use this interactive health screening tool if you dont know where to begin—-JUST START.
(male readers? perhaps send an E-CARD to a woman you love. Nothing says “Im thinking about you” better than lovingly prodding the woman in your life to take care of herself because you want her to stick around.)
Today’s the day.
It’s like the day at the library when they forgive all the late fees. If you’re behind on your checkups—make today the day you call and schedule an appointment.
Sure it’s scary. Yes it can feel easier to just hide & avoid.
But you’re worth it.
And, if you can’t summon the mojo to do it for you, do it for the REST of us who adore you.
Got some excuses why you may ‘need’ to skip making that appointment today?
(You know I love me some refuting of the excuses)
What reasons have you used in the past to SKIP taking care of yourself whilst caring FOR other people in your life?
Please to (to call your doctor, make an appointment & then) hit us all up in the comments.
