The dreaded pap smear was not NEARLY as bad as I’d been anticipating. I had the most absolutely wonderful, kind, compassionate doctor imaginable, which helped immensely. When she came in the room I told her this was my first pap smear and that I was terrified (point 1 for me for honesty!) She put her hand on my back and said with the utmost enthusiasm and support “Good job on getting here…I know it can be so hard and scary the first time”. She let me know that she actually really liked helping women make it as comfortable an experience as possible. I seriously lucked out with this doctor. So, no detail needed. It went fine. Now, I just await results but she said everything looked normal so that’s good. I should hear back in the next few weeks.
After my appointment I felt the need to reward myself. So I hopped on over to Sephora where I bought a lip tint and sugar scrub. I’m addicted to Tarte! Honestly, all their stuff smells so damn good.
My purchases. I’m so in love with The Rainforest of the Sea line of products!
I’d say yesterday was a success. I’m super proud of myself and honestly feel like I tackled a really huge hurdle. AND I did it for me…by myself. I didn’t have a partner pushing me to go. I didn’t take anyone with me to hold my hand. It was me who decided to make the appointment and I actually went. I’m showing up for me guys! This was a huge step aligned with my New Year’s Resolution to take better care of myself.
