Do you ever get that feeling that you forgot something?
I got up this morning and took Sophie for a run. About 2 blocks away from our house, I realized that something felt different. A couple of days ago I got stung two times by bees. Once in the morning while out running in my nose and in the afternoon while biking one flew down my shirt and stung me on the chest. This morning there was something different about the way the bee sting on my chest felt. It was being gently rubbed / scratched while I ran! This led me to realize that I had forgotten to put in my breast prosthesis. Never have I forgotten to put in my prosthesis in the nine years that I have had a mastectomy. So then the decision was - do I turn around and go back home or proceed. I figured - what the hell and proceeded. I ran into 3 people and honestly I am sure they were NOT looking at my lopsided chest! And if they were, it probably provided them with something interesting to think about on their run!
So here is a pic of me without my prosthesis in - not very obvious - it probably helped that I was wearing black this morning.
