Why I blog:

I initially began blogging in response to Peggy Orenstein’s article “Our Feel Good War on Breast Cancer” (see my first post, “Why I Am Here”).  I was upset when my response did not make it into the comments section online at the New York Times Magazine and wanted a better way to reach out to the public about what my feelings and experiences with mammograms and breast cancer were.  I wanted everyone to be able to hear what I tell my patients in my office.  Through WordPress, I have not only been able to do that, but I have also found a way to share my thoughts and struggles with other aspects of my life, including being a parent and wife.  My life has also been enriched through other people’s experiences in their blogs, which I would not have discovered had I not started this blog.  I hope people enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy others.
