There is a part of me that thinks God wouldn't give me both bipolar and breast cancer. I know that is not rational- but there is that feeling. And then there is the thought that I could never have anything as trendy as breast cancer. If Sheryl Crow and Angelina Jolie have it, I probably don't. I know, not rational. They say bipolar is in these days, but no one is going around wearing ribbons for bipolar. I wonder what color they would be?
It is really a testament to the movement that breast cancer is so out there. Two taboo topics- breasts and cancer- and now people can't stop talking about it. Colon cancer doesn't seem to be doing as well in the PR department- even though it kills a lot of people too- maybe even more, I can't remember. And the evidence for colonoscopies is better than the evidence for mammograms.
My mom has offered to come up for the biopsy. But I don't know how she would manage it with my grandmother, even with the help they have. And I think I would just be reassuring my mom the whole time.She didn't even want me having this biopsy- she wants me to go the alternative route. So I said no. They said I can drive myself. But that I should stay home for the rest of the day. I had better go grocery shopping before hand.
