Today I took off the tensor that was wrapped around my chest, hiding my bandages and my other breast. I didn’t look when I took it off. I haven’t really been ready for that reality.
Tonight as I changed into my pjs I had no choice but to look. I’m not sad (or so I tell myself), I’m firm and strong.. this is temporary. I may never look like I did, but I will be alive. That is all that matters…. and I will continue to fight this no matter what it looks like!
