Breast Cancer? But Doctor....I hate pink!
Poo-pourri

You know me, when I get bored my mind wanders, and right now, it's been meandering through cancer-related side effects. I was just thinking:  How come the phrases for having a bowel movement are all unpleasant? We have some nice terms for other bodi...

Dancing with NED

Women with breast cancer have an expression:  they want to "dance with Ned."  Ned, for my young friends, is an old-fashioned name like Elmer or Chester that will probably never become stylish again.

Pomp and Circumstance

This just happened…

A real conversation with a medical professional: MP:  "Hello, I'm your new Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, and I'll be standing in for Doctor Mogul.  What brings you here?" Ann:  "I need refills of my Imitrex." MP:  Looks down at sticky note on chart, "I'm supposed to talk to you about breast cancer. "  *flips through pages on...

Dear Abby

It's an old story, but one that people my age around the US share: starting your day by reading newspaper advice columnists. I've been reading them since I was a kid. Not only Dear Abby, but Ann Landers (when she was alive), Hints from Heloise a...
