  •  lol...step away from the keyboard, darlin'! (9+ / 0-)

    I would want to call the scheduling person back and explain to her how excruciating the wait was, especially with your family history, and ask if there isn't some way to help spare other women such distressing suspense in the future.

    But not tonight!

    •  We did talk to them about that (7+ / 0-)

      Our HMO has one 1 in the office I went to for the ultrasound, and there is one ultrasound machine and one employee that does that at the health care center we went to, which is the closest one to home.

      They let Mr.AzBlue go in with me and I got to lay on my back - no dangling boob - for the ultrasound and the radiologist was looking at the pics and ordering more and enlarged pics of a couple areas and whatever else via computer from somewhere in Phoenix.

      That part of it - the wait - was probably the worst, even though the 2 week wait was really bad.

      BTW, I used to always joke that I wanted AC/DC's Highway to Hell played at my memorial, but I told my husband that I didn't really want that played once it became a 'reality' - LOL

      I don't want to share a bench with Hitler, but would rather be with the people I loved and who've died and also, I really want to play While My Guitar Gently Weeps with my step-daughter and George Harrison.
      LOL

      I have the most incredible dreams and had that dream with Mary Lou bringing over George Harrison and you had to be there!
      LOL

      Anyway, and this really freaked me out while waiting, was had to go for the 2nd mammogram first and that tech lady was super, super nice and so very compassionate and I told her about the 2 week wait and she said that it was because they wanted to do the 2nd mammogram and ultrasound on the same day instead of making me come back.
      That freaked me out, because I thought OH NOES, it's so bad that they wanted me scheduled for the same day and well, it's all okay.
      LOL

    •  Oh and, wait, what? (7+ / 0-)

      You know, well, maybe you don't, but I don't have friends in real life and wait one darn tootin' minute before you react to that - but it's my choice.

      I have what I consider acquaintances, and I have several of them, but as some famous actress said long ago "Dahlink, I'd rather be alone."

      I love my husband and when it comes to a best friend, he's it, in real life.

      It's really hard for me to interact with people.
      I tried explaining this to my husband through the scare - believe me when I tell you this - everyone loves my husband.
      He's a loveable guy.
      He's personable, whereby I'm awkward.
      Seriously, people in real life wonder what he sees in me.

      I've pretty much always been alone.
      I had that severe eczema that followed me through 12 years of a Catholic School and my mom never allowed any of us to have friends and my parents never drank alcohol.
      Never.
      It's just the way it was and all of us kids moved out young and it wasn't because it was bad at home, it was because we wanted freedom and independence.

      I wanted to get high on pot, basically, and listen to Simon and Garfunkel - LOL

      Finding this site and finding this community has opened something within me - people like me here!

      I've never ever had people like me before in real life, as people like me here.
      And that causes me an entirely different set of concerns.

      But since being a part of this community, I've gained and have grown as a person and yes, it's like when Sally Fields won that OSCAR - YOU like me!
      LOL

      I'm much more confident from this site.
      I can't explain it correctly, but for once in my life, I feel accepted for being me.

       

      All we need is LOVE!
