I am a 5 year survivor now. But whenever I read about a recent diagnosis of friends here, I feel butterflies in my stomach. But you know, there is a better life after all this is over with. I know time and again we tell each other to stay positive, but rarely do we get to share how.
Let me tell you a few tricks -
-Drink lots of water - It's such a great cleanser!! And it's super cool
-Skip in front of the TV because I'd rather have you moving than sulking on a sofa/couch ... move it you all!!! Don't rule out dancing... that is so much fun!
-Best time to cheer up those bitter taste buds... eat ice bars and popsicles.... try all the flavors!!! Mmmmmmmmmm!!
-If you lose your hair... don't worry they'll grow back.... enjoy the baldy heady!! My daughter would love to touch and kiss it and it tickles a lot!!! Hehehehe!!
- Act silly and blame it on your chemo brain .... "Oops... sorry I bought another bag.. I forgot about the one I bought last week. I guess it's my chemo brain."
- Splash your face with cool water.... REFRESHING!
- Stare back directly at whoever makes you feel uncomfortable! It's fun HOW DARE THEY!
Those were some of my silly tricks.
You guys should share your's.
Stay healthy and happy friends.
