It’s not fair.

No, not the whole cancer thing. I mean, yeah, that pretty much sucks but I never went through the “Why me’s”.  With my family history and the fact that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, why not me?  What I’m finding completely unfair is that while I no longer have a hair on my head I still have to shave my legs. What’s up with that?  And another delightful side effect of all these poisons medications that I am on is forced menopause. Forced.. as in forget about easing into it.  One of the (unexpected) side effects of the steroids I am given with chemotherapy is acne. Seriously?    So, while puberty and menopause wage an unholy war in my body, I’m going to complain bitterly about how unfair life is. Don’t blame me.. it’s my inner teen.  Later my inner menopausal crone will tell me to suck it up and get over it. For now, the teen drama queen wins.
