my challenging gyno visit

Well folks I finally went to get a gyno visit. I had to drive to the Bronx which took FOREVER from Long Island in the city traffic. The parking was terrible because of the side street parking rules for snow removal. I arrived at the doctor's office for my 9 am appointment and the facility was CLOSED *LOL* Anyway, it opened a few minutes late and the waiting room was well...freezing and extremely unappealing. The television was on and I found myself glancing at Entertainment Tv about the Oscars. I'm so glad I had earplugs with me because I tuned out the unimportant lives of hollystars and read a magazine. I was finally called half an hour later and I don't think the scale worked. I've never been five foot four in my life EVER and my weight was totally wrong because I had clothes and it said I was 155. My bathroom scale says the same thing and doctor scales are supposed to be more accurate. Either that, or my scale is really accurate as I did pay thirty dollars for it a long time ago.
I got my breasts examined and my pelvis felt for fibroids and other cysts. The good news is that I DO NOT have fibrocystic breasts, no breast lumps at all and I have no fibroids. HOWEVER, I was extremely upset that I could not get a pap smear which was the main reason I went to this doctor because I DID NOT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. I usually pay for myself and if I had the money then, she could have done it. I was just aggravated that I didn't ask about the pap smear on the phone because I was happy to be seeing a doctor. I paid one hundred dollars to see this person. She referred to a free clinic but I was so disgusted with everything I just said have them call me and I left. I should be thankful that I don't have anything wrong with my breasts and ovaries. I was just made painfully aware that my financial situation didn't allow me the luxury of a pap smear $250! I cried a little on my commute out of the traffic hellhole of NYC but as I got closer home, I said to myself this is a LESSON. This doctor visit is a tremendous BLESSING. Now I know that I must take charge of my health, esp. my womb health because the solution IS NOT with doctors and laboratories. Plus, I would refuse their poison treatments for cervical dysplasia ANYWAY no matter the diagnosis. Guess what? It can come back ANYWAY after you've paid $$$$ to get it taken care of.
Yes my friends I'm still on my fast. Now it's taken on a whole new level of importance. Thanks for allowing me to vent and shake off these thoughts before bed so I could have a peaceful sleep. Tomorrow I am posting a point by point plan of what I am doing during this cleansing fast. It's a time to HEAL MYSELF.
