…and of course my car has to go into the mechanic. I woke up last night and the old boob was throbbing – I had rolled over on my left side so note to self: left breast is still on vacation, handle with care. The pain was pretty bad from doing that. (Must not squish)
My article has been picked up by another local paper – The Delco Times. Thanks Delco Times! My article originated in a paper owned by the same parent company – the Flair Section of the Main Line Times.
In addition a very cool PhD named Victoria Tillotson who is also an awesome jewelry designer and is working on a website and book and more to help women with aesthetic issues during cancer treatment picked up my article and well…re-tweeted it to a gijillion people. (You can follow this part of her business on twitter at @SurvivBeautiful and the jewelry and other stuff @chicmetal)
This makes me feel good, really good about my writing. It also validates my choice to write about my breast cancer. Talking about it does help one cope. So you newly diagnosed? I am not saying you have to blog about it, but do talk about it. It helps keep the room from spinning. There are a lot of us out there — we get it.
In other new, got into a slight tangle with a friend today because I asked a question about a photographer they had used. I thought it was a fair question because I do like it when I get paid for my photos and I had taken a lot for them as a swap for exposure.
Unfortunately it set off a bit of a “thing”. So dear friend (and I know you read my blog), sometimes a question is just a question and a girl has to pay her breast cancer related expenses. And I have expenses to meet. That is all it’s about. No dig at you. Just a question because much like you did a while ago, I am transitioning more and more from the “donate services” column into the “get paid” column.
That’s all for me. Starting the day tired again, but I know that will get better….
