Update Available!!

I realize it has almost been a year since this nightmare began. And it feels like it has been one very long year!  I have learned more about breast cancer than I ever thought I would.  I feel comfortable talking about it now, I guess it's like my new best friend!! 
People ask me if I am now "cancer free" or in "remission".  I don't really know the answer to those type of questions.  From what I understand as soon as all treatments are done I will be considered NED (no evidence of disease).  Then it becomes a watch and monitor situation.  Oh and pray too!
I have now grown about an inch of hair.  Feels like it is taking a really long time to grow back.  I haven't gone out without a hat or wig and am not sure when I will. 
I have been taking Tamoxifen for more than a month now.  Tamoxifen is a hormone blocker to stop estrogen from feeding any lingering or developing cancer cells.  It basically puts a person into menopause.  So, with it come lots of side effects.  I seem to be adjusting somewhat.   Lots of hot flashes, insomnia, achy muscles and joints and some moodiness.  Nothing too any great extreme so far!!
The big 50 is just around the corner!  Another thing that is so hard to believe!  We are going to Cancun with some great friends for a week!  I am not too comfortable imagining myself in s bikini with 2 inch hair,  in fact it is pretty frightening!!  But it is what it is and I will be just fine!  
So, that is update for now.  I see there is light in the tunnel ahead!
Amazingly I want to thank my friends and family for never ending love and support!  It means the world to me!

I recenlty had a keratin hair treatment which smoothed and relaxed my hair to a fairly straight style. On days when I want a bit more body and bounce, I add this to my style products

and love the outcome. A great way to change my style with little or no fuss.

This product is perfect for my curly hair. It leaves it looking beautiful w/o being

crunchy. I live in a very humid place and I've finally got my go-to product. It's taken me years to find something this good!

I have had such trouble finding a product for my wavy/curly hair. I have tried everything, and

while some products worked fine, Moroccan Oil is the best. It works in all climates, which is great for me since I travel a lot. I live mostly in a humid costal climate, and my hair doesn't frizz ar fall

flat since I started using this product. I love it!
