A Post Chemo Celebration

It's been five years since I completed cycle 23 of IV chemotherapy. Five years ago I was bald. Today I brushed my hair.

Most of the time, brushing my hair is something I take for granted, but this morning I stopped and remembered being bald. I remembered waiting for my hair to grow back, and how I couldn't wait for my hair to be long enough to braid. This morning I braided my hair.

Hooray! I have hair! Yay for hair!

Today I remembered to stop and look at the path behind me. Pausing and remembering how hard life was, compared to how life is now, reminds me of my strength and brings me joy.

What problems have you triumphed over? Looking back, what brings you joy?

I am not a doctor. I do not have a medical degree. Nothing on this site qualifies as medical advice. These are lessons I'm learning at the University of Catastrophe. What I find to be correct answers in my classes may not be the right answers for you.

If you are enrolled with your own major at the University of Catastrophe, please consult your doctor, therapist, attorney, auto mechanic, veterinarian, plumber, dietician, arborist, acupuncturist, manicurist, mother, local dairy council, shoe shine boy, or other equally qualified professional, for advice and assistance.
