Acceptance or Pessimism?

In the last fourteen months, I have gotten news of breast cancer in five women I know. Four of them under age 50.

I've come to realize that my view has shifted from "if I get it" to "when I get it".

I'm not sure if this is healthy, that it will lead to a more vigilant screening routine (like most women, I'm a little lax on my monthly self exams) or if it is a negative mind set that will lead to no where but needless worry.

It's getting scary out there.

Loki sez: No more bad thoughts! Look at my cute parti-color toes!
