Defence against the Dark Arts

Sitting here on the sofa watching the genius crap that is Made in Chelsea, feeling like crap! Taken extra anti-emetics but no joy. Hopefully will feel better tomorrow.

So what a day - day 1, round 1 of aggressive chemo. I must say I have a complaint to make to the Trade Description people....Cold Cap my arse........Fucking Freezing Helmet is a better description!
This is clearly NOT a cap! Minus 5 degrees is NOT cold. Surely the appearance and the ice on my hair after sporting this look for 5 hours should indicate that all descriptive terminology is somewhat misleading. I demand a refund!
However this ordeal is in a vain (see what I did there?!) attempt to save my hair as losing it is a real possibility this time. I know it isn't the end of the world but I have spent the last 37 years covering up my sticky out ears so it's a look I am keen to avoid. And as if the freezing, sorry cold, wasn't bad enough - my hair was covered in conditioner beforehand and I can't wash it for 24 hours - I am a crusty nauseous mess! Gorgeous. Still I get to sleep on silk pillowcases now - how posh am I?
So day 1 DONE. Who knows what the next 2 weeks will offer up - we have mouth ulcers, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea to look forward to. Maybe I should play side-effect bingo! Altohugh a full house is not a good thing in this game.

  1. Good idea about the silk pillowcase - far gentler on the follicles.

    Hope you're feeling as well as can be x
