I Passed My Test...
My Pap Smear/Test, that is. I even got a report card in the mail telling me I passed!
Have you taken yours?!
Seriously, girls, you need to see your gynecologist or internist and have this done. At least every few years.
We can't see these parts and we don't know when something goes awry.
Get to the doctor, put your feet in the stirrups, and think of something much more pleasant. Some of my doctors' offices have nice flourecent lights with pleasant outdoor scenes on them. It's so much better to have your pap smeared in the middle of a field with white-flowered trees floating overhead!
My doctor told me once that if getting a pap smear is the worst thing that happens to you in a day, then you're pretty darn lucky. Sounds like wonderful words of wisdom to me!
Go on. Pick up that phone. Make that appointment.
Do it for your husband and kids. Do it for all the people who love you. Do it for me. Just do it!
