Hello people! How is it going today? You won't believe I thought today was Wednesday. So we've only had Monday this week? Haha. Well, I'm sure you've seen everywhere about today being the International Women's Day and I want to give a big shout out to the women I've met here on read.cash. These women are strong and are working hard to be who they are, be good people and provide for themselves and some, their families. I listed some names, but the list seemed long and I didn't want to leave anyone out by mistake.

Today, being the day to celebrate women, if you know any woman around you, celebrate them. Woman here is not limited to adult women, it also includes young women who are trying to navigate their way in the world.

Today, I'll be talking about health tips women (and everyone) should know. Despite the fact that this will be centred on women, it is for everyone; for a friend of a woman, a father of one, a partner of one, a doctor of one, a brother of one, an uncle of one etc.

  1. Talk to Your Doctor

In a society that teaches women that everything about them and their bodies is taboo, it becomes difficult for women to speak up when they are noticing any abnormal bodily changes. Not just that, a woman who is comfortable talking about her body is seen in a bad light while guys who talk about women's bodies are hardly chastised. This culture has made some women uncomfortable to open up even to their doctors, especially if it is a male doctor. It is important to note that the doctor is not the same boy who laughed at your body or the society who told you you were a secret never to be revealed. This is not saying that you should go around exposing your body, but when you are in the doctor's office, whether male or female, talk to them. The doctors understand and won't judge you, they are just doing their jobs. There's nothing new to them, and you'll only keep suffering if you don't talk to them in detail.

  1. Cancer check

There are some cancers that women are more prone to having such as breast and cervical cancer. While breast cancer happens to both the male and female folks, it is mostly suffered by women. Lots of terminal cases of breast cancer have been reported to be avoidable if it was detected early. I lost my great aunt for the two reasons I have currently pointed out. She never checked for breast cancer and when she noticed a lump, she was too embarrassed to say anything. Her grown-up daughter noticed the already big lump one day when she saw her mum dressing up and forced her to see a doctor but it was already too late. So please, encourage every woman around you, whether young or old, to do a home check for breast cancer.

Google "breast cancer self-exam" for the steps on how to check for possible lumps.

Ps: not all lumps are cancerous but it is best to see a doctor if you notice anything.

Also, breast cancer is more common in people who have reached middle age and above. So, get your mothers, aunties, friends and yourselves to test.

  1. Love Yourself

You may have heard this before and chalked it up to being some yoga mantra that doesn't mean much but as a woman, you have to love yourself. This will greatly improve both your mental and physical health. Yes, the society will judge you a lot! They will judge you based on your looks, how you dress, what you eat, how you walk, what you look like and they'll keep telling you to do better. They may go on to dictate how you should live, dress, behave and blame you when someone harasses you even if you follow all their dictates. The truth is even men are judged by their pockets, sexual prowess, physical strength, show of emotions. These things shouldn't be so. We should love ourselves as we are, strive to be the better version of ourselves and give ourselves a pat on the back when we do something right. Also, do not try to see yourself using the lens of another person and do not feel like you're entitled to someone else's earnings.

Happy International Women's Day

Here's to strong women:

"May we know them

May we raise them

May we be them"

i have my aunt who lost her one breast but we are thankful that she was able to survive. Knowing about how to check or examine ourselves is already a big help. Thanks for reminding me about it.

This post reminds me something my doctor told me 2 years ago when I visited to check on my chronic knee pain...

"Your body will tell you when it is sick, your body will communicate with you with all those symptoms of what is happening internally,, you should be alert and must listen to your body.. if you do not, it will shut itself"

Whenever I think about it, I still get shivers.. and as you rightly said, we need to listen and observe even the smallest changes that happen to us and talk to our doctor about it

Yes, that's true. Our body tells us when there is a change and its best to confirm from the doctor if the change is problematic or not

From the first point, women reporting to docters when they notice any negative symptoms, that's a good step. But this days, we have lots of semi professionals in the systems.

I remember during school days, all students were to pass through the medicals from stage to stage, the X-ray department is being handled by a young man. You know how X-ray does na, you're to off your clothe(both male and female).

...you supposed to get where I'm heading to, letme stop here in order not to spoil you.

🤣 🤣 That's true, it's also one of the reasons women are scared. Normally, the attendant is to leave the room and to give you a free robe to wear, that's what was done for me

I recently lost a classmate to ovarian cancer and it was truly devasting for all of us in that class. She died in India after we have helped to solicit for help on various social media platforms to come up with the money needed to fly her abroad. Health is very important and we should all do well to go for check up because sometimes we won't even know what's killing is slowing until it's too late 😪

Truly, women have to start loving themselves and know that they shouldn't settle for less than what they deserve. I also belive cancer awareness should be emphasised too. Happy Women's Day Daria
