In a (successful) attempt to make myself laugh, I trolled the internet for gifs and captioned them.  I have to say, though, that it wasn’t entirely my original idea.  A favorite blog of mine, Semiproper, has a series called This is How I Feel.

So basically, this is how cancer makes me feel.


To my left boob, just before surgery.



When I had to say goodbye to my right boob.




When someone tries talking to me about how tumeric / cannabis / kale / positive thinking could cure my cancer.



The first time I went out in public without a wig or hat.



When my husband got home from work, mid-chemo.



When I wore a wig.




When people try to talk to me about their loved ones who died of breast cancer.



Chemo: day seven.



XOXO, Heather

  1. I laughed out loud! Thank you so much for taking time to do these. I will never understand why people feel the need to tell you all about their loved ones, friends and even acquaintances who died of cancer when you tell them about your diagnosis. How can they think it’s a good idea? I will forever remember Bey pushing everyone away. Thanks for that.
