Very interesting post, Kate.

I've always taken my looks for granted, but when I hit 55, it was a drastic change. Everything went south and my hair slowly but surely fell out. Now when I look in the mirror I'm always surprised at what I see. It gets worse over the years. I still feel the same as that gal who I seem to have lost somehow, but I sure don't look it.

When I was diagnosed with IBS, it hit me hard. I was so anxious I couldn't leave the confines of my home, not even to walk around the block. The weight gain was constant and added to the depression. It was not a pretty picture.

Now that I'm stable, I'm determined to do whatever it takes to get back to that young gal as much as I possibly can. A friend and I are joining Weight Watchers and taking up walking; I'm also getting back on the rowing machine. And I'm getting a Hair Hat; my fitting is tomorrow, and I should have it by February. It's expensive, a cost I would not normally spend on myself, but, like I said, I'm going to do whatever it takes to feel good about myself, as much as I possibly can.

Sometimes knowing that we have a good heart, we're kind and considerate, albeit a little blunt at times, is just not enough.

I don't know what "normal" is because I never was. I wanted it so badly, once I forced a tampon in me just so I could be like all the other girls. Man, that SUCKED! Maybe it's not so bad after all just being me.

Get the hypo-cat. Lets both put the crap behind us and get on with our lives.
