"Vain - excessively proud of or concerned about one's own appearance, qualities, achievements, etc..."
I was thinking about this the other day. Most folks that know me will state that I'm a pretty low maintenance kind of gal. Give me jeans and a baseball cap any day and I'm comfortable with that.

Most of the side effects I've dealt with. Honestly in the grand scheme of things they really aren't that bad. But I am totally getting bummed out about all my hair falling out. I know it's much worse for folks going thru tougher chemo and it falls out fast - but my hair is really starting to get thin. I'm sure most folks wouldn't even notice and I'll spare you all a picture of what comes out on my hair brush every day! You're welcome :)
I've also noticed the skin changes. While I haven't gotten a rash again (thanks!!), I feel like my skin is 1 Zelboraf pill away from breaking out in a rash. It might be hard to see in the picture - but I do have all these raised red bumps on my skin. Again, not a rash and they don't itch - just looks odd.
I know these are a small price to pay as long as Z is doing it's job and killing cancer, right? But I guess it's just a daily reminder of cancer and dealing with it. My 3rd round of Z arrived this week. I'm hoping it will be my last round for now! Scans in a few weeks. Feeling pretty good still!
