It's taken some time, but I have enough hair now that I don't feel totally self conscious. You get a lot of comments when your hair is this short. (I think I look a little butch.) No signs of curls yet though, just a lot of cow licks. Eyelashes are coming in fast which is also good. Gluing on false eyelashes to go to the grocery store was getting tiresome. I'm vain, what can I say? Just back from my first post treatment visit with the Radiologist and he was pleased with my state of mind and body. I've dropped a few pounds, got a lot of energy back and I am raring to go, but...I have to be very selective about what I throw myself into from now on. I was over committed before and I loved it but no more. Now, I like having some time to myself to spend with Alex and my creative pursuits. All that down time was frustrating and defeating, but it gave me a perspective on how I wanted to spend my time in the future. "I don't have time" was my excuse for a lot of things, exercise, letter writing, lunch with my friends. I want to write letters and have lunch with my friends, exercise, not so much, but I feel so good now that I want to ride my bike. That counts, right? I might even start taking the stairs again. Don't laugh, the ArtId office is on the fifth floor of a factory building, a killer set of stairs, not for the faint of heart or faint anything else.
