Holy shit. What did I just write. I accepted a test that I have no understanding of what it will show and what the purpose of having this information is. I thought I would never do this and I wont. Thankfully I have time before it was scheduled and I can cancel it.
I cant believe that I said yes when I have no concept of why.
I was reading a book written in the 80's which is turning out to be a great next book to the last one I read. Its called Love, Medicine, and Miracles. In it he describes a patient who refused to leave her room for x-rays until they would explain to her why they were doing it. I thought.... that woman is like me, or I am like that woman.... then it hit me.... no I am not.... I am going to have a procedure where they shoot me up yet again with radioactive material and I don't even know why.....
I guess there was a reason that the $1.99 used book jumped out at Miss Lindsey. It was more than the dramatic scalpel and the rose on the front cover.
