Bee’s Poem of the Day: Hairloss vs Virus

Guten Tag liebe Leser (this means “Good Day dear readers”) how are you doing today? I do hope you and yours are well. If not, remember, that you are embraced by my blessings.

The last couple of days have been good. I am not in pain even though the scars of the operation (I had my lymph nodes taken out under my left arm as well as two tumours out of my left breast in March ) are sometimes uncomfortable. The side-effects of the first chemotherapy session are fading, or I get used to taking care of them, so they are not a problem. Next week I have my second session, and my fears are growing again.

Strangely my biggest fear is to lose my hair which hasn’t happened yet. My cousin who had cancer some years ago and underwent chemotherapy too said hers fell out after the third chemotherapy. So I still have some time to find out if I can get away with it. Probably not but hey ho, I will learn how to speak like a pirate and wear my scarfs with pride 😉 .

It will still be hard. There are challenges that test your strength and that one will be mine. And I somehow wonder why I am not so much bothered by the virus even though my husband has to work and my immune system is weakened.

How about you? What are you fearing the most at the moment?

 Hairloss vs Virus

Hairloss my biggest fear, not the virus.

Feel silly in this pandemic,

but do I not have the right

to fear what I want to

while concentrating

on my healing?

The cancer

won’t get

me

Happy Tuesday to you all despite everything.

      1. Danke sehr. Ich bin im Süden aufgewachsen. Dann habe ich in der Nähe von Bonn, in Berlin, Münster und Meppen gewohnt bevor ich hier nach GB gezogen bin. Ah, München ist toll. Worms kenne ich nicht wirklich 🙋‍♀️🐝
