Good afternoon all, how is everyone this fine afternoon I am home alone for the time being, Kelli and Daemon have gone out to pick up Jono and they are off to a house inspection in Wallsend and Tim will not be home from work till around 11pm by which time I will be in bed asleep.
As I sit here this afternoon wondering what to write about I am again consumed with back pain and I am so over being in pain and the doctor will not give me anything for it, I asked for some anti inflammatory tablets but she didn't want to give me any however I talked her into it and she gave me a trial packet as she said I should only be on them for 5 days.
I had to go the doctor today for a well woman's check (pap smear)not a pleasant procedure but one we women need to have done. My aunt on my mothers side her younger sister died of cervical cancer at the age of 28 that was back in 1972 she left 5 children without a mother. I was only 10 so I don't remember her, I do remember going with my mum to visit her once but really I was too young to have any memories of her.
Today I had to also have something called the HPV-DNA test this is because many years ago I had a high grade abnormal result, which involved me having laser surgery to remove the abnormal cells.
I have tried to stress to my girls how important it is to have pap smears, although I know one of my sisters is terrible at having them done regularly and you would think she would know better but still she doesn't have them done. She has said she doesn't like them and they are an embarrassment I feel it would be worse if you die because you were too embarrassed to have a simple test done.
