A Naked Picture

Daddy's Warrior Princess

I wanted to post a picture of me after I had lost my hair. I had not seen a picture of me with no hair since that time. I didn’t know how I would feel to see me then. I went through all my external hard drives looking for pictures and I couldn’t find any. I gave up; maybe there were no pictures chronicling my breast cancer journey. I had found a couple of me wearing a wig, which I have posted.

When I was bald.

I hid behind my wigs.

I hid behind my smile.

I hid from cancer. If I didn’t have to look at it, it wasn’t real.

I also suffer from allodynia (hypersensitivity) and its really hard to describe the horrible pain sensations I get from light touch/pressure and heat.

March 2015 Comes in Like a Lion on the Plateau bringing with it the Hope of Spring

Lion_SunFolks here are still weary from the ice storm last week. Still, there are approximately two hundred residents without power in Cumberland County. The psychological effects of this storm are daunting for sure.

Personally, I want to remember a few things from our experience. Because we had a wood stove and plenty of wood, we had 12 people staying with us. One of them was a truck driver who was staying at his Mother’s house while she was in Florida for the winter. Early Sunday morning, we got a call from a friend who was panicking because her husband was running out of oxygen. Continue reading
