When cancer steals your hair, pluck a smile out of it 🙂 #laughterwithcancer

On day 16 after my first chemo, I lost my hair. The fancy word is : alopecia

It was freaky to go into shower an see a big chunk of your hair on your hand.
Bless Mark who came around and play along with my crazy idea to pluck a smiley face out of it.
My mum and I ended up plucking the rest of the hair.

D254: NEVER LOSE HOPE AND ALWAYS HAVE FAITH

D254: NEVER LOSE HOPE AND ALWAYS HAVE FAITH

Always a pleasure to hug Jim again. He is way past his expiry date in 2014. He is a testament that miracle happens.

He told a story about being reunited with his consultant who has faith in him. And we need people to have faith in us.

Nelly, his wife is too shy to be on the video. She gave me a hug and she picked me up haha 😀 Is that a hint that I need to put on more weight.

Love you Jim and Nelly 🙂

Teen With Terminal Cancer Marries His Girlfriend in Wedding Put on by the Community

This makes me sad and happy at the same time . That’s the power of cancer. It can take you from one extreme to another. It makes you realise how powerful love can be. Cancer can be cruel at times but this take their love to the next level.

Their love is truer than true.

If only there is more time to experience it.

But how lucky are those who experience love as true as theirs.

D253: ‘NOT QUITE’ THE CALM AFTER THE STORM – THE AFTERMATH OF CANCER

D253: ‘NOT QUITE’ THE CALM AFTER THE STORM – THE AFTERMATH OF CANCER

I’d love to hear experiences from my cancer friends about this.

I find comfort reading Living Well After Cancer booklet from Cancer Council Victoria. Even though, I am the lucky ones that haven’t lost any limbs. There is still an after math of rebuilding your life after cancer.

It doesn’t magically switch back to normal after treatment. I hope my friends could be patience with me. And if you have friends who finished treatment, keep supporting them.

When cancer storm hits, you pour your energy holding on to every bricks of hope. Keeping yourself grounded so you don’t lost yourself. It finally it passes and you can take a breather. Your home was damaged but you are safe. You ponder at what’s in front you. Your life may not be back to what it used to. Maybe the point is not to be back to the life we once had but to create an even more daring life. All cancer patients are dare devils who cheated death.

Honestly, I feel vulnerable putting my goals out loud to the world.

I don’t know if you noticed on the videos sometimes I couldn’t recall words. I’m not sure if this is due to chemo brain? It’ll be challenging to be a public speaker on a larger scale (Being on TED Talk is on my bucket list).

If I didn’t put this out there, I have already failed before I even started.

May I have the blessings to reach many more and make this world a happier place before my time passes.

Meditation is like giving a hug to our ourselves

Question to my cancer friends.

Do you do any specific exercise post chemo clearance?

What do you find most helpful? Maybe we can all share tips 🙂

I’ll be back to see my awesome exercise physio Sarah this Thursday at Peter Mac. Hug me if you see me around 🙂

I can’t remember being this achey during chemo. I woke up every day with ache. It’s worse if I went for a walk. Maybe those 5 weeks bed bound plays part. My friend said that it might be due to weening off my pain killer.

PS: Does anyone else get ringing ears coming off Effexor? I’m also getting off Lyrica and had days of sleeplessness. I need to level up my meditation skills 😂. I don’t usually have trouble sleeping not even in hospital with IV machine beeping away and nurses obs in between.
