Mother Nature, You Whore

Alright girls, here’s another real life post for you–men, if you don’t want to hear about menstruation, swollen boobs and all the shit that goes with having a period, you may want to stop reading now. My feelings won’t be hurt. I’m a big girl.

This week my period started, right on time. All the crazy emotions and sensitivity that goes along with. Except this month, I know now I have breast cancer. Last month prior to menstruation, my breasts were incredibly sore, more so than usual~I’d even commented to my sis-in law, though I still had no reason for alarm.

Had I not been in-tune with with my body and discovered the lump (which we now know to be cancer) 25 days ago, I could be walking around completely oblivious to the tumors growing within. While my body is swollen with normal menstruation happenings- swollen boobs, soreness, bitchiness – I would still be unaware of the tumors. Ladies, exam yourselves.

Okay Tara we know you found a lump.
What did it feel like?
Why did you question it?
How did you know to get it tested?

The lump felt like an eraser head from a pencil. Sometimes we have cysts and shit growing in us especially after menstruation. But this lump, was hard, immovable and not supposed to be in my boob. That #badboob is still fucking grounded and won’t see the day of light till 12/22 upon removal.

peace, love & root-beer floats
