A new Normal

Artist Dee Henderson-Haefner

Canvas 50cm x 65cm

Feeling confused. Angry. Not a good combination. Needles every week. Blood and bandages. Healing again. It seems I'm always healing from procedures or another surgery. It never seems to end. When I am finally healed, there will always be the scars. Chemo damage as well- hair, nails, eyes, skin, losing two teeth. Reconstructed breasts with no nipples. Chemo-brain...maths really difficult now. I've always loves maths. Career lost.
The new normal.

I'm told I should be grateful to be alive. I am, I say, and I smile. I know I will feel differently in a few years, but inside I'm still so angry. I hate this new normal. Dee.
