STILETTO – a high pointed HEEL on a woman’s shoe or a small dagger.
WHEELS – a medieval instrument of torture or a vehicle for personal mobility.
Still trying to adjust to my ghastly facial scars and horrible new nose shape – yes, I know everyone says it is barely noticeable BUT these are the people politely ignoring all of my neurological paralysis and side effects, ‘no, no you look fine…just like you used to.’ Oh, really, how can I trust them? I was not looking forward to the facial chemo gel treatment that I needed.
At the surgical clinic, they said it would be a really grim experience - they know how to make you beg for it! I looked on the internet; it sounded horrendous. Finally, in September, I saw Derm Doc who ‘encouraged’ me to go ahead, think ‘chemo-peel.’ I went for it mid-October.
The lesions and lividity took a few weeks to heal and I still have a few worrying areas that just don’t look OK. I spent some weeks at home alone. I ‘celebrated’ my November birthday at home with friends. EaZyD cooked from Skye Gyngell’s book – fab!
i think I should be worried but I am off to the hospital soon to try and halt my neurological relapse. My brain can only do one crisis at a time. I will come back to this next year...maybe!
