Wrongness of EPIC Proportions!

I spoke too soon. I mentioned still having hair and the Gods took that as a sign. A sign to allow my hair to drop out of my head like a water spraying out of a fountain. It is everywhere. And I thought it was everywhere before. Well, I did not know what EVERYWHERE meant. I literally can see it falling before my eyes like little dancing dashes. And the dandruff! Hela icky. I even have dandruff on my arms. Ok, it is flaking skin. But I am not a flaky skin person. This means I have to suddenly, for the first time in my life, break out the lotion. Just when I eliminated a step out of my ritual with the lack of hair a whole new one gets added. Did I mention that chemo gives you ZITS. Pimples where you have never had pimples before. There is just no end to the tragedy. Zits, no hair and flakes. I am never going to attract a cute doctor.

Does this mean you don't have to shave your legs? What's happening in the naughty bits region? Is that verging on TOO MUCH INFORMATION? I guess I've never wondered about it until now.

Squirl said...

Oh, man, that sounds so sucky! I wouldn't count out the cute doctor yet, though. You've got way more personality than hair on your best hair days.

HDL-funny you should say that. I have been wondering if it is bad form to declare that my nether bits are rather sparse these days. I haven't shaved my legs or pits for 6 weeks. Almost arrested hair growth. Weird for me as I usually need to stay on top of the shaving bit. Showers are very quick these days.

Squirl-I am surprised I am not more emotional about it. Actually, it is no big deal. Thanks for the vote of personallity confidence. I am keeping my eyes open for some medical hottie!

OOOOOOHHHH - I see what's happening. Kranki wants a Brazilian without the pain. Huh?

Can we play bright side here? Just for kicks? I'll go first:

- At least you don't have pube head (right now).
- At least you don't have braces and a horrid fashion sense along with the zits.
- At least you have a funky knit wig coming your way. (When are we going to see a picture of that, anyway??)

Blessings upon your flaky head.

I once read that the supreme irony for chemo patients is that all your body hair falls out, EXCEPT for the little coarse hairs on your chin (ew, ew, ew!)!! You are probably too young for those. However, those of us who have them understand that this is just the Universe's little way of saying we were really, really bad in our last life...

By the way, Jane's hair is beautiful. No pubiness about it. Like you need one more thing to worry and obsess about! Besides, Dang Cold has set it straight.

Candace said...

Aw, sorry! Nothing like a little Karmic kick in the pants, eh?

And I agree with Squirl about your personality. You got you some, baby!

I'm snickering here, 'cause I'm glad HDL asked what I wouldn't have had the nerve to ask.

I would LOVE not having to shave my legs or pits...don't think I'd love the chemofication part, though. Blech.

You're just on here flirting. Trying to pick up guys by making yourself sound all hot, with your zits and your flakiness. Hussy!

Think about it in the positive...some people have all these charming problems normally (zits,bad or no hair and flaking). Try riding a metro in a big city sometime and you could be amazed.Doctor? I thought you were above the stereotype need to get yourself someone who can relate LAAAANNNNCE!!!!
ciao bella

Aw, hang in there, darlin'! I'm sure you can woo anyone you set your sights on!

mrtl-pain free totally. It cracks me up. Whole body Brazillian.

LBo-I have total faith in Dang's ability to control my hair. It is totally out of my hands. Thank you for the blessings.

Misfit-that will teach me to speak too soon. Thanks for the vote of confidence too. I get so tongue tied with guys though. I am flirt deficient.

-Ladybug-I am telling ya, I take some seriously fast showers. It is almost llike time is standing still in my body with so little hair growth.

Susie-I am damned sexy-said in Fat Bastard Voice.

Anon Pablo-I am not admitting to any zits normally or anything. LAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNCCCCEEEE!!!!!!

Ern- I am gonna try. Maybe I'll meet some other sexy bald guy at chemo. I can barf on him.
