You know, there are so few upsides to the entire chemo thing. Of course, one of the biggest downsides is that you lose your hair. Now, I would venture to say that an upside of losing your hair is that you tend to lose ALL of your hair. ALL. OF. IT. I haven’t had to shave my armpits since, oh…January? I can’t remember. And, there was this glorious period in which shaving my legs was a distant memory as well.
HOWEVER. In the past 2 weeks, shaving my legs has once again become a daily chore. To which, I say….”Really, Universe? REALLY?! Of all of the hair on my body to start growing back like gangbusters–it had to be on my LEGS?”. Yeesh. I mean, I was actually ENJOYING that bit. I know life isn’t fair and all that, but it really does feel SUPER UNFAIR that my legs have more hair on them than my head.
Whilst–I do love that word. “Whilst”. Whilst whilst whilst. Well, not so much now, because I just used it too much and it doesn’t feel like a word anymore. Like pants. Pants pants pants pant….wait. What was I talking about? Oh yes! Whilst I am on a whinging kick, can I just say that I’m super upset that it’s freezing cold outside and I cannot take my cutely bedazzled and sparkly head out in public?
