(In the flurry of the last post's comments, Deb seemed to be indicating some nihilism. She described some family health history and her subsequent decision to pass up some examinations and lab work. So she will now be yelled at; resignation will not be tolerated.)
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING?!?!?!?!?!? You call the mammography clinic tout suite and set up an appointment today. NOW! You tell them your concerns that you're at high risk. If the current Majesties are considering treason, send them to the guillotine (they can always be succeeded by silicon Pretenders).
You will also call a cardiologist. The Ticker can commit treason in many ways. What could be more annoying than dying from something avoidable (or delayable)? Maybe you didn't inherit any heart issues and you're making yourself terrified for no reason. Maybe you need to get a pacemaker installed or carry some nitro; very tolerable compared to fearing the unknown.
HONESTLY! What is this hiding away like a scared rodent business about? Fight like a bad-tempered badger!! Even if you have to pay out of pocket, get the best science there is to prolong your existance. Make this your QUEST, dammit!
(Lord, its exhausting making people see reason. Luckily its my Quest ;) )
