The Australian Medical System and Cancer and a weird week

I have had a practically crazy 2 weeks. You know when you think what will go right. I would say I have Chemo brain but it's 3 years now surely it can't be that. Anyway as always its laugh or cry, I am making the most of it no tears. If you did not laugh you would go bonkers. Laughter is great for the heart..

Even a look in the shop windows this week at all the things I can never afford but like Prada, Chanel, Jimmy Shoo, YSL, Ralf Lauren and any shoe shop or jewelry shop which normally makes me happy...
Lets cap on my morning today. Getting ready for my 6th surgery on Monday the 13th. I am so excited, but half scared to death as I am still paying off a $44,000 debt still ..another $10,000 Monday. I have decided my new nick name could be the six million dollar woman. They told me I must pay the surgeon upfront, they always do that. But today with no notice the anesthetist and the hospital also want the money upfront. Boy oh boy!

Australia the lucky country - that is unless you have Cancer the expenses for that are gigantic...
But, if you are a drug addict (eveything free) , boat person (Everything free), 18 year old falling pregnant to stranger they get $5,000 and the pension. All paid for with every Australians hard earned money, I am going to try and make a joke out of this as I work 3 jobs and pay lots of tax. Why are we not helping Cancer patients. Julia Gillard you are a woman! Seems you don't care the country is a mess, medical stinks. Let me and the Cancer ladies share the bills with you....Let's speak in person I will see how many woman and men with Cancer bills can be there. Wake up Lady....

"Hard nipples" - areola or nipple skin

Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??" The answer: Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples". Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…

Once ovulation and menstruation begin, the maturing of the breasts begins with the formation of secretory glands at the end of the milk ducts. The breasts and duct system continue to grow and mature with the development of many glands and lobules. The rate at which breasts grow varies significantly and is different for each young woman. Breast development occurs in five stages:
Stage One: In preadolescence, the breasts are flat and only the tip of the nipple is raised.Stage Two: Buds appear, breast and nipple are raised, fat tissue begins to form and the areola (dark area of skin that surrounds the nipple) enlarge…

Linda McCartney Breast Cancer

By Alex Tresniowski
With Her Family by Her Side, Linda McCartney's Long and Winding Journey as Mother, Wife, Artist and Crusader Comes to An All-Too-Untimely End     There were 36 phone messages waiting for freelance music writer Danny Fields when he returned to his Manhattan apartment April 19 after a weekend trip. Reporters were calling about the death of his close friend Linda McCartney, who had died two days earlier at age 56 from breast cancer that had spread to her liver. Devastated by what he heard, Fields reached for the phone. "I called Paul right away," says Fields. "I said, 'Oh, Paul,' and his voice cracked for 10 seconds. We both started to cry. But then I couldn't stop, and he was consoling me. He said, 'Wasn't she great? Wasn't she beautiful? Wasn't she smart and together and wonderful and loving?' "

Praising his wife was an occupational as well as an emotional habit for McCartney, 55, who wrote dozens of love song…
