hi gals: i've been in "marybe land " for the past week, so not here that much.. she's gone home now, and boy, i hate my life here, without someone who "gets it" here!!i'm so glad you guys are here, to "log in" to talk to!!!
Kate, the maxi dreses are all the rage this summer, but don't let people talk you out of your sleeves.. i don't wear them at the pool; no need to, as long as i stay in the water, when i get hot, and do arm circles, or sidestroke , for my arms.. its' actually really good for le. helps with the heaviness.. and i do wear a wrap cover up, cause i'm fat.. no way around that, cause its true. i was overweight when the journey started, so the extra 25 i gained with the hypo hasn't helped that situation!!!
i just hope you can relax , i hope your friends are entertaining enough.. i always tell people i don't want to talk about my cancer, since i haven't seen them for so long...
and, then, if i have a friend that i feel close to; i talk to them privately, if they're really interested.
by nature, im an extrovert.. (ya think?) but i really have a hard time with either end conversations.. i can't handle "small talk" for too long, and i can't do "tell me your deep dark secrets" for too long, either.. i excuse myself to the bathroom, cause its' believable.. i have a cold bottle of water with me at all times. i just say "darn water.. i'll be back" and then, give it enough time so the subjects chaNGED WHEN I GET BACK..
THE IMP THING IS, ENJOY YOURSELF AT THE RESORT..sorry for the caps.. i just looked up!!!
and, i have black sleeves, opera length, like i ordered them, and i wear them at night all the time.. not so noticeable. and if people ask, and know i've had cancer, i tell them swelling from the surgery.. if they don't its still swelling, from the heat, now.. hahaha i don't let anyone make me feel bad about wearing them, cause im the one who pays if i don't not them!!!!
ok, so enough already.. i hope your surgery goes well hopeful. fatty livers are found in perfectly healthy people, too.. not just "us" nothing to worry about.. so, go get everything the way you want it to be... 3jays
