24 - Don't Like My Health History
Yesterday I was excited that they could squeeze me in to get my teeth cleaned. It was almost a week since I'd had surgery, so I was ready to get something done. But I was jolted by the friendly office faces who didn't know my story. "Hi! How've you been?" Then I was handed an electronic tablet so I could update my records. I sat there in the comfy waiting area and stared down at the list of health conditions. These forms have always been easy. I fly through. But then I saw that word, Cancer, with a box beside it. I felt a lump in my throat as I clicked the box. This is now my health history forever. I was surprised how that numbed me. I felt a little sullen as I continued to answer more questions like, "Have you had any surgeries in the last 2 years... if yes... explain..."
But the good news is.... the dental chair felt soft and dreamy, with Food Network distracting me from above. "This is so easy." I told my gentle hygienist. I keep on my clothes and shoes and lay back... and you just clean my teeth."

I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
