When I was told by a healthcare provider that my lifestyle was inappropriate, it scared me. I didn’t want to return to a doctor again. In fact, I put off check-ups for eight years, even after receiving some abnormal test results.
Thankfully, I worked up the courage to return, because when I did, doctors found an 11-pound mass growing off of my uterus. If I would have waited any longer, it could have been a very dangerous situation.
Don’t let fear stop you from coming out. Don’t let someone make you uncomfortable. Try another doctor. Share your experiences with others. Live your Health Out Loud. It might just save your life.
