Hello ladies, I was bag packing for a charity last week and it was in a local store. I met quite a few people that I had not seen in years. It was at the checkout and some of the questions people were asking me made me giggle or shocked as they were quite personal. I have been very open about my cancer and have raised awareness but come on there is some things you just don't ask lol They mean well but it was awkward trying to answer without everyone around me listening.
The funniest though had to be when a girl I know touched my hair and asked was it my own ! Imagine if it had been a wig and she got me on a bad day and I had got upset - thankfully not but some people have no filter !
I was quite proud to say yes so I thought I would change my profile pic and ditch the last one that I had my wig on. I can finally claim my own hair again and that unfortunately includes body hair too ! Hopefully I haven't spoken too soon as my scan is coming up in December BUT I am feeling good and staying hopeful that the disease in my liver and stomach remain stable and I can continue on this parp inhibitor. It has been 9 months since last treatment and 2 and half years since diagnosis, not bad for a stage 4 with weeks to live back in March 2014 !
Praying it continues. You ladies continue to give me hope, support and inspiration every time I come on this site.
Love to you all xo
