My Boobies Hurt

Dear Diary,

Based on my entry yesterday, I'm assuming you gathered that there has been a lot of stress in the office this week.  I'm happy to report that yesterday was calmer (and less tearful) than the first half of the week.  However, I have a new problem.

Our health insurance provider sent out a newsletter yesterday and a particular line grabbed my attention. It read: "Start simple steps to a healthier life today, and in just six weeks, you could be on your way to a healthier, more balanced life."

I thought, sure, I could use a little less stress in my life.  So I clicked on the corresponding link and proceeded to fill out an online health survey.  Here's where the troubling part comes in.  For the most part, the results of my health survey are in line, but then I see this:

health risk

What?  I'm a moderate risk for breast cancer?  I want to know what question I answered on that survey that links me to breast cancer.  I must not have been paying attention to the questions because my boobies feel fine.

On the other hand, maybe I'll take this to my boss and ask if I can take the day off as a sick day.  Diary, do you know where I can get a breast cancer self exam sticker to put on the inside of my medicine cabinet?  I guess I'll have to start doing self exams after brushing my teeth.

Men can get breast cancer too - so be careful with those boobies of yours (and don't pluck too much - it leads to cancer).
