Always Read The Small Print
Here's a couple of things they didn't warn me about with chemo
1 - Without hair, it is bloody freezing!
We have had nothing but frosty mornings since my hair fell out, and I am permanently cold without it. I now feel sorry for all the blokes in the world who are bald.
2 - I have a permanently runny nose!
Nobody told me that my nasal hair would fall out too! This has given me a very runny nose - especially with all the frosty mornings! Meanwhile, I still have hairy legs - what the hell is that all about?!
3 - I have developed body dandruff
They told me that my skin might feel a bit dry, but they didn't say I'd be a walking snow shower! Every time I strip off, there is a cloud of skin dust - YUK! I've bought gallons of baby oil which my skin is drinking greedily. What a 'mare!
