‘Look Good Feel Better’ cosmetics workshop
Earlier this week I attended a workshop put on through the American Cancer Society called Look Good Feel Better. This is for women who are going through cancer treatment and have lost or will be losing their hair, eyebrows and/or eyelashes. I was the only one there that hadn’t lost her hair yet. I am concerned about losing my eyebrows and lashes and wanted to know what to do in that case. The three women there had not lost their lashes or brows so that made me feel good. But as we know, chemo affects each person differently so only time will tell with me.
I felt like the best thing I took away from this workshop wasn’t really about applying makeup or wigs, but it was meeting these brave women and how therapeutic it was for all of us to talk about our disease and feel a common bond with each other. I may never be in touch with these women again, but I will always remember them and keep them in my thoughts and prayers while I go through my journey.
One more thing, I go on Monday for round 2 of my 4 rounds of Adriamycin and Cytoxan chemotherapy treatments. Those have been every two weeks after this I will be going once a week for 12 weeks for the Taxol treatments. From what I am told this may be the week that my hair starts coming out. Just in case I have an appointment set for Thursday to have my head shaved.
