This was my yearly exam. Hate them, but don’t we all. I’ve been on Depo Prevera for over 20 years, and just hit 50 last December, so had decided not to order the next depo shot and leave it up to the doctor if I should take the current one.
He had NO idea I was 50! He thought maybe early 40’s. He’s having me take the Depo until I turn 51 since that’s the average age and see what happens, so I had my shot today and I will order the next one when I’ve finished this post.
One of my friends and I have been discussing the age things, since my students insist I have to be around 35, and hers insist she must be in her early 40’s – she just retired after 37 years of teaching. Our theory is we think younger because we are around them and must act younger to keep them under control. Interesting theory.
Waiting on test results, but not at all concerned as cancer doesn’t run in my family, just diabetes and cardiovascular complications. I do need to get a mammogram scheduled.
