Thanks for your comment! Yeah, I think about how when my mom was a kid and her mom got cancer, people were so afraid to say “the C word” that my mom had no idea how sick her mom was until she died. So I suppose society’s made a ton of progress since then, when it comes to talking about our bodies, but we’ve still got a ways to go.
