In honor of Women’s Health Month, The Global Female Civility Leadership Institute leads with concepts for Females to be prepared and prevent a crisis.
As women, we often dismiss the minor signs that could significantly impact us on many levels. We intentionally or unintentionally keep moving forward and pretend as if nothing is wrong. Partially because we feel as if we don’t have the time, or our attention is on taking care of the needs of others. In some cases, we think that the bump, scratch, blister, lump, bruise, ache, pain, or soreness will eventually go away. At other times we will try to figure out a home remedy that we can use to see if the ailment subsides or hope that things will eventually get better. But we must realize that time is of the essence when it comes to self-care, better health, and our lives. Days and weeks can make the difference in a diagnosis, the stages of the diagnosis, the available treatments, and possible cures. We are to take nothing by chance and indeed not for granted. Take the time to schedule an appointment for yourself. Get a second opinion if you feel it is needed. Don’t be afraid to ask for a referral to a specialist.
