It’s time to slam yourself in the refrigerator door (for medicinal purposes, of course)

“We have a 7:45 opening,” she said in our phone conversation, and all I could think about was how cold that machine would be at 7:45 a.m. It was time, you see, for my annual mammogram. Now if just reading the “m” word makes you blush, you’d better take an aspirin and rest, for this column is about the great lengths we go to in the name of health and disease prevention…just so we can get hit by a car or something. It’s been several years since I read the e-mail which circled through the hands of girlfriends about mammograms, my favorite analogy comparing this medical procedure to intentionally and purposefully slamming your breasts in a refrigerator door. As I sat in the waiting room of our local hospital, filling out sheets of medical information, that image remained before me.
