It is 5 weeks since my last chemo and I sit here now thinking....did that all happen??? It feels like a dream.
For the first time in 5 months I cleaned my house yesterday...all by myself!!! It was such an awesome feeling doing this for myself and not needing any help. I never thought that house work could be such an exciting thing!
Last night I went out for dinner and drinks with some friends for the first time in over 6 months. Through the night I kept getting hot flushes so I took off my head scarf....That is the first time I have let the public see my bald head and it was quiet empowering!!! I needed to have had a couple of drinks to have the courage, but I did it.
I feel like I am finally getting my life back. Even though I am soon to have my left breast mastectomy and recon for both. My head is clearer and I am rarely sad. I dont think I have shed a tear in over a week!!! Whoo hooo!
Stay positive pink ladies. There is light at the end of the tunnel...I know cos I can see it
