It has been almost 7 months since I finished chemo. Life has been crazy with moving out of state and all but it has been WAY too long since I did something with myself! Ugh! I have never let myself go so bad. Gotta love just one more side effect of breast cancer!
Before breast cancer, I had my hair cut every eight weeks - like clockwork. I use to schedule my appointments eight weeks in advance. I use to get my hair colored every few weeks. There was never even a gray root visible to most. Now it's a struggle to just wash my hair and put make up on! I really need a makeover or something!
I have never considered myself a vain person or always primping but BC has allowed me to let myself go. NO MORE! I am going to schedule an appointment to get my make up done. I need someone to help me camouflage these dark circles under my eyes for sure. I look so pale with winter coming. I hope this make up artist can perform miracles!
I also need to get something done with this hair. I used cold caps to keep my hair through chemo but it is much thinner and frizzier than my pre-chemo hair. I am kind of hating it and ready for a new look. I was referred to a hair stylist that uses all organic products so I am going to call and get something done with this hair for sure!
I am ready for a new look and a new me...cancer free! I am gonna go for it! No more post chemo excuses for me. I need to put myself together again and soon!!
I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a neice, an aunt and a friend. I never thought I would hear the words "It's not good. There are cancer cells". December 8, 2010 changed my life forever. This is my scary, long, enlightening journey through breast cancer. I hope that my words help others facing a similar situation or those that love someone going through breast cancer. I don't know where the road in front of me leads, but I know that Breast Cancer won't define me.
