When I saw my doctor recently, she reminded me of the gray mouse I was before BC. I was a shy home-maker, a mother of two, helping my husband with the family business.
When I got the diagnosis, I shared it with my great-aunt, a BC survivor herself. I was hoping to get sympathy from her. But she chastised me! She said enough feeling sorry for yourself! She really put my thoughts back in place. From that point on I took charge of my life and I really changed. During treatment I didn't hide my baldness. I was opened about it. I embraced it. It was important to me to show it to women. That there is life after the diagnosis.
"I WANT TO BE ALWAYS ON THE MOVE"
Wear bright make-up, jewelry, clothing. Don't be afraid to bring attention to yourself. It's amazing how you sometimes have to go through this negative experience to get to something so positive.
Live full life, make plans!
When women lose their breasts, it's difficult to accept yourself. But men love you not just for your breasts, but for the fire inside!
