  • V-Day for Amazons
    on Feb 14, 2012
    Today is my least favorite holiday, Valentine's Day. I never particularly celebrated it even when I was married, when it seemed entirely manufactured and fake, though that might have been because no one had ever been romantic about V-Day with me. I a...
  • My Shout-Out to Silicone
    on Feb 8, 2012
    Today, one month after surgery, I went to the hole-in-the-wall called My Secret, which is something like a back room Victoria's Secret, as if it were a hidden part of the store too embarassing to show the world. They only see you by appointment, and...
  • Frankly
    on Feb 4, 2012
    To be consistent with my truth-telling self, I will relate the odd experience yesterday of visiting my opthamologist for an eye check-up, He asked how I am, so I frankly told him what this year has been like. He trumped me by telling me that since I...
  • Not Inspirational
    on Feb 1, 2012
    I want to be upfront: if you're looking for inspiration or warm fuzzies, you won't find it in this post. I tend in general not to have a Positive Outlook on Life. On the other hand, I personally would rather read something that is true, even brutally...
  • Support Group, Thursday Version
    on Jan 27, 2012
    The Thursday support group at Sloan-Kettering could not be more different than Tuesday's group in midtown. For one thing, it's run by two professionals, long-time social workers at the hospital who have been doing this for many years (I remember one...
  • Cancer Support Group, Tuesday Version
    on Jan 25, 2012
    To continue my proactivity program, yesterday I attended a free meeting of a cancer support workshop in midtown sponsored by the volunteer organization SHARE. There were twelve of us at this workshop, which turned out to be on the theme of Loneliness...
  • I Am Proactive!
    on Jan 23, 2012
    Now that I am feeling my energy come back day by day, I've had a burst of what you might call proactivity (is that really a word?). I spent Friday afternoon on the Internet and phone, trying to find a support group for women who have had a mastectomy...
  • Fist-pump!
    on Jan 20, 2012
    I saw the ever-dashing Dr. C. this morning. The pathology report showed no cancer cells at all, not even DCIS. He did say that the pathologists only examine a very small amount of tissue, so there could be some in there, but it's a good report, never...
  • Just Weird
    on Jan 19, 2012
    Last night was the first without all that surgical paraphernalia. I was looking forward to being more comfortable, but instead I felt...weird. There I was in bed, snuggled paraphernalia-free under my nightclothes, ready to go to sleep, when I realize...
  • Down, Blue, Low, Out of Sorts
    on Jan 17, 2012
    Down, blue and low are all metaphors, when you think about it. We use metaphors for sadness for the same reason we use them for love (crazy, magical, falling) -- because the feelings are in some way directly untranslatable and appear so unreasonable...
