Look good, feel better

So a couple months ago I blogged a bit about the whole cancer thing.  I've not said too much about it because I've been determined to NOT let it take over EVERY aspect of my life, particularly not the professional aspect of my life.  But, there's always a but, it is a life experience that reshapes who you are.  

Of course with treatment comes hair loss. It sucks. Not gonna lie. Treatment is like trying to live in a vat of cold molasses, and on top of feeling like shit you get to lose the hair on your head, the hair on your face, even the hair in your nose! ((not something I ever realized I would miss and was glad when it returned)) The ironic bit was that I retained the hair on my legs.  SERIOUSLY!

I was incredibly fortunate that my hair started to grow back even before my treatments were finished but at two months post-chemo my newly regrown lashes and brows did a mass exodus.  As vain as it may sound, I was slightly devastated. The feeling of 'normal' would be delayed for a short while.

Fast forward to five months post-chemo, my newly regrown lashes and brows fell out yet again.  This time I was pissed. Cancer had triple dipped and at this point I'm just ready to move on and be OVER this whole thing.
