I had a good day today. I have been released from my Plastic Surgeon’s care. She thinks my head looks good for just having completed radiation treatments and is very happy with how the skin graft areas held up. Thank God another leg of the journey comes to an end.
Even with that bit of good news I’m incredibly irritated and frustrated tonight. I don’t want to name names here but I heard by way of the grapevine that someone close to me told someone else close to me that I’ll never be the same. This makes me angry. I don’t think I’ve ever said that. I’ve had my moments, sure. But I think I’ve handled these last 9 months pretty well. I’ve had moments of anger and sadness and even a few moments of intense fear but never have I ever believed that I’ll never be the same. I was shamed to be told, “It’s up to you how happy you want to be.” *shakes head* Wow! Just wow. I’m hurt and bitter and embarrassed.
It’s almost time to hit the hay and my snuggly little Snowy Bug is laying on the couch next to me so I’m going to continue catching up on Jerseylicious and enjoy his cuddly company. Thanks for stopping by every day, I love you all.
With much love and great affection,
