13 Days Left

13 days until I return to work.


Part of me is so very excited, jumping out of my skin and ready to roll but the other part isn’t so enthusiastic. I kinda like getting up when I wake up, not when an alarm tells me to get up.

I love pottering around the house during the day, spending time with my girls in their Chicken Coop. Playing with the dogs and having them sleep in my new home office while I tap away at some game or other.

Well, in 13 days I say goodbye to this life and start a new one again. It wont be the same as the one I had before because I am different now.

Cancer changes a person. I am not going to get all deep an meaningful in this post because what I really want to show you is my HEAD!


Look at that ‘mop’ of hair I have grown!! Look at it! People will start calling me Rapunzel in no time!

Oh, and just before I rush off to watch another round of Family Feud, I wanted to let you know that the Fish Oil capsules have worked absolute wonders as far as oiling up my old tin man feeling body. Remember how I said I felt like the Tin Man who needed oil in his joints? Well, the Theracucumin didn’t work much for me but the Fish Oil has been amazing. I take 3 x 2000mg a day (spread out through the day, not three at once) and I have felt a lot looser. My headaches are still there but not as often or as bad. My shoulders and hips are still a little sore but are a lot better than they were. I have a rubber band thing that hangs out of a closed door that I am now doing exercises with to get the muscles working again in my shoulders and arms.

Everything looks to be coming up roses πŸ™‚

      1. All the best for going back to work. I reckon it will not only be a physical challenge but also mental and emotional. As you say, we get used to having our own time to do what we want. On the other hand, everyone will be so supportive


    1. It feels great! I think more so having eyebrows and lashes makes me feel human again. Being bald was fine enough but without eyebrows and lashes I looked, well, sick hehe. It seems a bit thicker but time will tell. Colour is also hard to work out. It looks quite light in the sun but then looks darker in the shade. I think if anything, it is a bit lighter than it was before. πŸ™‚

  1. Your hair!! I remember time went by so fast with my treatments, and when I saw my hair growing back, it was such a relief (let me clarify, NOT my chin hairs!). For me, it was a sign that I was finally recovering. I am so glad you are getting back some level of normalcy, and yes, a different kind. Wishing you good luck as you transition into your old world. Hugs!

    1. Wouldn’t it be nice if those annoying hairs in places they dont belong just stayed away? Thanks for your kind words. My ‘holiday’ is drawing to an end and I must say, I am excited and anxious all at once. xx


  2. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written much better!

    Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send
    this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a very good read.

    Thanks for sharing!
