A body massage with my regular beautician left me almost sleepless last night.  She detected something not right on the part every women seems to fear.... she told me to see a doctor.... that left me thinking of the Capital C the whole evening through....

Early this morning I couldn't wait to go and check it out with a gynae... unfortunately my all-time gynae has retired, he is of a different race from me and and I feel more relaxed with him... (he was handsome... then)  Too bad he is no more working and I felt at a loss who to go to... 

Feeling undecided, somehow, I drove all the way to Kinta Medical Hospital but the nurse told me that it was full for the day!  Not wanting to give up, I proceeded to the next hospital along Kampar Road... I was not familiar with the place there but nevertheless I feel the need to get it over with.... I am of an impatient character, I want fast results..... 

After waiting for nearly two hours, it was my turn... he is a chinese gynae in his early 40s.  Very friendly and pleasant at least, that is a consolation... first, he checked my blood pressure and to my horror, he told me that it was sky high, 190/100!  Ready to be admitted!

However he consoled me that it might be due to my stress, not to worry, he said..... then, it was time to lie down (the most dreaded part).... Told me to relax, very gently, he did a full private check up from the top to the bottom for me... ultra sound, poke here, poke there... (ladies, I am sure you understand what I am saying here... )

Then finally he told me that everything seems to be fine according to scan, nothing seems to be found, however, if I really want 100% results, he advised me to go for a mammogram... oh oh.... that is what I fear... painful, right? 

Anyway, for now, I can relax a bit ... since the gynae said so far, so good... so let it be good!  The mammogram can come later...  oh, by the way, the blood pressure went down to 150/90 after the check up!  Still on the high side.... need to monitor, he said...

Guess I need to go for more "de-stress-ment."  Maybe go for a nice holiday or do something I love ... (singing!) so that the "stress" can disappear.... vanish.... and not haunt me.....
