To squish or not to squish


Soooo, I've been staring at a reminder for a while now to schedule an annual examination for September.

But September came and went and I have yet to do it.

I just don't look forward to it so it's not at the top of my list.

I made the call today though and wonder if I might have been a little premature in doing it.

One of the reasons I've put it off is because I've been debating on whether I want to have my boobs squished this year.

I've never had a mammogram, nor do I particularly want one. Not sure if I even have enough to squish, but that's beside the point.

It's Breast Cancer Awareness month and seeing the pink ribbon on my blog everyday just makes me wonder if it would be a good idea to suck it up and as Nike says, Just Do It. Or if I should just stick with the awkward breast examination I'll get during my checkup.

Throw on top of that that this week is National Feel Your Boobies week.

I'm twenty-seven. Most women never started getting examinations until they were forty, and now many women have moved it up to their thirtieth birthday, with some things there's no such thing as too early.

So, I'm trying to make this decision and would love any input suggestions or personal opinions any of you have to share.
