I did a photoshoot last December when my hair was still short.
I needed a reminder that I am not just a blob of medical intrigue and that I was still a woman who was fierce.
Got my photos back today and they have done me the world of good.
I think it’s safe to say mission accomplished.
I also felt it was important to include my scar. It features heavily as it is now part of my life. It represents the fact I am still alive. It’s a starting point for a whole new life for me.
I just needed a reminder.
I am fierce. I am strong.
I can and will fight everything as I want to live and have fun.
(Also, I’ve been described as a chronic pain wrangler…. I like that.)
