Unattractive AND Stinky?
It's hard to feel very attractive these days. I have to strut in for radiation in a hospital gown and flip off my wig or scarf. Then I have to reach both arms over my head, while the therapists adjust my position. It's hard to feel confident about how I look and how I might even smell! But it's not summer, so that's good. And my therapists chatter with me, so I think they're properly distracted. Plus I use a double dose for my left armpit... as if that might transfer somehow.
I've found a few shirts in my closet that cover my marks. Again, I'm glad it's not summer, when Texas days make you want to live in swim suits and tank tops.
Feet and Food
The chemo has left me with a lingering issue of numb toes, which is a little odd. But I'm now allowed to have pedicures, since infection risks are lower.
The other day I figured I had earned the indulgent treat of being treated like a princess in one of those throne chairs. The massage was heavenly, even if my toes didn't really feel it.
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
