Mum & I were talking yesterday about the number of people we know that have either been recently diagnosed with cancer, are being treated for cancer, or have died from the disease.
Our conversation transitioned into preventive medicine and my deficiencies in maintaining my own preventative health regimen. “Why haven’t you made that phone call yet?” was followed by my hemming and hawing with a multitude of excuses.
I keep forgetting.
It’s been on my mental “To Do” list for a couple of months, just like several other items have been for quite some time. Interestingly, I keep forgetting to take care of them, too. New rule for my Life List: If it’s important and must be done, WRITE IT DOWN.
Before I receive a plethora of comments exhorting me to take better care of myself, I scheduled my “Well Woman” appointment as soon as I got home from Mum’s house.
