A Friendly Reminder

Hey girls, I know you spend most of your time caring for your family, friends and all the bajillion things that have to get done in a day. But today, make time to take care of YOU. Have you had your annual PAP exam? If the answer is no, DO it.
Don't delay. I know it's no fun, but we need to take care of ourselves.

Have you checked these lately?

You know what I mean. Do a monthly check. It takes 2 minutes. Two minutes that could save your life. Ask your doctor about a mammogram. Let the good times roll!
If you are 40+ admit it long enough to schedule an appointment, then you can go back to denial and enjoy being 39 for another year. ;)

What a way to start a Monday morning, huh?
You know I love ya. You're worth taking care of!
Take care of yourself so that you can handle all 106 bajillion things on your list. Wait, I guess it's 107 bajillion now.

If you are one of my few faithful male readers and you actually made it this far into the post, make sure the woman in your life is taking care of herself. She deserves it.

Happy Monday!!!

Thank you for the reminder. I am actually way over due for an exam.

Mich said...

Not due, yet. But since I have a mother -in-love having breast surgery Wed....it is very important.

You are so sweet!

Gretchen said...

About to get the old hoo-ha checked over next month. ;) And I've had a mammocram, since I'm one of your OLDER friends, and it's really no biggie. Not a day out at the mall, but really, no biggie.

Great PSA.

When we went home for Christmas, I got both exams done. A nice little gift to myself. ha ha (love the jug photo!)

Thanks for reminding everyone. We are always taking care of our families and often forget to take care of ourselves.

I have to tell you that I have a phobia of the Gyno. Cannot go. Hate it.

But I'll think about it...for you.

Good for you to post this reminder! Even if does give us 107 bajillion things to do. I have a close friend who is a breast cancer survivor. She makes sure we all get our mammograms!
