Beyond breastfeeding, boobs are really more of a nuisance than anything. They are kind of heavy and they get in the way. They aren't good for much (I hear men around the world disagreeing). I will admit that sometimes a plate can fit nicely on them when you eat dinner on the couch. But, beyond that, they really are a lot of trouble. My husband suggested that I'll probably feel a lot better without carrying these things around all the time. When he first told me this (right after I found out that a mastectomy was recommended), I was a bit offended! How could he suggest I'd feel BETTER after losing my breasts! But, as I've come to terms with it more, I've realized that he could be right. (Oh boy, I'll never hear the end of that - yes, my husband *might* be right). I guess my back, shoulders and neck do hurt a lot. But, when they are part of you, you just deal with it, it doesn't really occur to most women that maybe you'd be better off without them...
I've gone from the breast envy I had when I first found out I'd be losing my breasts to breast comparisons instead. Now I'm looking at everyone's breasts (oh yes, I'm still looking!) and wondering what size they are? I need to know what size to choose! Isn't that crazy? I'm going to CHOOSE my boob size?! Haha! How cool is that! I mean, I had to win the cancer lottery to get this choice so I wouldn't recommend it - but since I'm here, it's kind of exciting to get to choose exactly what I want. I'm like a kid in a candy store...uh, except, I guess it's a boobie store. Wow, that sounds really demented and wrong.
It's too bad that my new amazing perky boobs have to reside on the rest of my 41 year old body. They deserve so much better!
Boob Count = 78
