Another Appointment Day…BLAH!

Do you have to go in for another treatment?

Appointment?

Radiation?

Blood Test?

Are you depressed and weary?

BLAH!

Do you need a boost?

Try wearing a Halloween secret…

I promise it will boost your spirits!!

On my chemo days, a few times an older lady would sit next to me who was in her nineties. She was spunky and fun.  She would come in to the cancer center completely dressed up to the hilt.  Earrings, a hat that didn’t look like a bald cover-up, make up and sometimes even a fur.    It made me laugh to see her dress up so much for such an awful situation. (Most of the rest of us came in sweats.)  She told me her secret:  I do it because I hate coming here so much.  It boosts my spirits when I dress up fancy.  I am sure it took her a long time and a lot of energy to do that.  But it worked to give her a lift!

See someone else who’s spirits need boosting? 

Bring an extra pair of Halloween socks to give away!

It may be your doctor who needs some oomph.

Or that impatient receptionist.

Or the guy who parks your car in the valet.

Or the person who takes your blood…that can’t be fun all day long!

Or your little child.

Do it!

It will make you SMILE!

AND

You will definitely feel better.

Then, later, I will show you what I wore during Radiation!

  1. Yesterday I was at a soccer game and they were wearing pink for breast cancer awareness, they asked if I was related to anymore who had gone through it. I stood up and took all applauding from the thousand fans at the game for YOU. Love you so much mom! You are such a strong example for good!
