Friday’s Letters – Silver Lining Edition – February 21

Friday's Letters

Dear Chemotherapy – You are not the funnest thing I’ve ever done; however, you’re not the worst thing either.  In fact, there are some very tangible, appreciable GOOD things about you! Since you’re so maligned and Jane Public generally thinks you’re terrifying, I thought I would post some of your benefits here today.

  • You’re very good at what you do.  Kill All the Cells!
  • Everyone I meet comments about how great I look – glowing skin, etc.  Yep.  It’s true. My skin is super smooth, fresh and soft.  Even the calluses on the feet are gone. I’m getting a full body chemical peel from the inside out.
  • You’ve killed my sweet tooth, especially for ice cream.  Sweet foods taste terrible to me right now.  I’m not even tempted by an open bag of Dove chocolates.
  • Perfect Hair. Every. Single. Day.
  • You’ve given me loads of extra time every morning for snoozing and eating a leisurely breakfast – No hair to blow dry! No shaving!
  • I’ve met some incredibly nice, compassionate and amazing folks at the local Chemo Bar.

  There’s Good In Everything.  Keep the Faith.

  1. Melonie use to say that too, the smooth skin part. With no hair and extra fluids she said she’d never been so soft and smooth. I’m thinking I’d rather be an alligator if I have the choice.
    You are awesome. Truly awesome!!
    Blessings Angela~
