Sometime life has a way of throwing you curves, everytime I feel like I am getting my life together something seems to get in the way. When my boys where growing up I did everything with them, for them, anything... One of my sons is so kind hearted to me all the time, he calls me almost daily and always tells me he loves me it means the world to me, then my other son who I know loves me, I just don't understand him he won't answer or return my calls and it hurts. I know he has his phone with him all the time and is just ignoring me WHY I just don't know. I am not the meddling mother type I would never do that when I do get to talk to him I act as though nothing is wrong but I do tell him it would be nice if he could call me at least once a week, do you think that's to much to ask? He just bought a house and I would love to see it but he told me about a month ago he wants to fix it up before he lets anyone in to see it, I am OK with that I just hate being shut out of his life. My other son says not to take it personal because he does this to everyone, I just can't understand I brought him up to be a loving caring person I know he is but he has shut himself off from me, I have not seen him since Christmas, and have only talked to him once where he told me he would call me the next week and we would go to a movie and out to eat just mom and son time like we used to do all the time, I was so excited we use to do this all the time but he never called and hasn't answered my calls since. I am hurt but I am not sure how to tell him without making him mad (he would have to answer the phone first) Do you think I am being Paranoid? I am going to continue to call and leave messages but I hate crying myself to sleep over it my heart aches for him. I know God has his hand in this and it will work out and I need to trust him as to why but its so hard... OK I won't vent anymore I was just needing some good advice, I don't get along with my mother at all and swore that would never be the case with my sons and they would never wonder if I loved them I would do anything for them and will always be here so kyle if you read this I love you so much and miss you, PLEASE, Please call me Love MOM.

Today I went and had my yearly mamogram, I really hate it, could they smash you anymore. Even though I hate it you have to do it to protect yourself and you should do a MONTHLY EXAM AS WELL CLICK HERE FOR A HOW TOO. While I was waiting I read this funny on the wall I had to get a copy to share with you its too funny.
THE FIRST TIME IS ALWAYS THE WORST
The first mamogram is the worst, especially when the machinecatches on fire. That's what happened to me. The technician, Gail positioned me exactly as she wanted me (think a really complicated game of twister, you know right hand on the blue, left shoulder on the yellow, right breast as far away as humanly possible from the rest of your body :-)
Then she clamped the machine down so tight, I think my breast actually turned inside out. I'm pretty sure Victoria Secret doesn't have a bra for that.
Suddenly there was a loud popping noise, I looked down at my right breast to make sure it hadn't exploded, nope, it was still flat as a pancake and still attached to my body.
"Oh No!" Gail said loudly. these are perhaps the words you least like to hear from any health professional. Suddenly, she came flying past me, her lab coat whipping behind her, on her way out the door she yelled over her shoulder, The machine is on fire, I'm going for help!. THOSE are the worst words you can here from a health professional. Especially if you are all alone semi-permanetly attached TO A MACHINE and don't know if its THE MACHINE in question!!!
I struggled for a few seconds trying to get free, but even Huudini couldn't have escaped. I decieded to go to plan B: yelling at the top of my lung, the one that was still working! I hadn;t seen anything on fire, so panic hadn't quite reached epic proportions. But then I started to smell smoke coming from behind the partition. "This is ridiculas," I thought. I can't die like this. What would my they put in my obituary? Cause of death: BREAST ENTRAPMENT? I may have inhaled some fumes because I started to hallucinate. An imaginary fireman rushed in with a firehose and hatchet, Howdy ma'am, he said What's happened here? he averted his eyes. My breasts were too hot for the machine, I quipped as my imaginary fireman ran out of the room again. "This is gonna take the jaws of life"!! In reality Gail returned with a fire extinguisher and put out the fire. She gave me a big smile and released me from the machine. Sorry! That's the first time that's ever happened. Why don't you take a few minutes to relax and we will finish up? I think that's what she said, I was running across the parking lot in my backless gown at that time. after I had relaxed for a few years, I figured I might go back, BUT I WAS BRINGING MY OWN FIRE EXTINGUISHER!
I'm glad I read this after I had had my exam it totally made me laugh out loud though! :-)
