I experienced three pretty frightening health scares the last few years, and I thought it might be helpful to you if I talked about them. My hope is that I can inspire you to go get yourself checked out by a doctor if you have a niggle that’s been bothering you.

That lump in your breast? Now’s the time to go get it checked out! That weird-looking mole? Go get it tested! 

It’s all too human an impulse, to bury our head in the sand and try to ignore the problems we know we should be dealing with.

In this episode I share my story (stories, actually!) to show you that it gets less scary if you face your problems head on. I also share eight important lessons I learned during this process, lessons which will make it easier for you to follow through!

Remember: if something is wrong your situation will probably only get worse if you do nothing, and it will probably get better if you DO do something about it.
