Finished "The Approaching Horror" acrylic 8x8 on canvas board

Thank you anyone who looks or comments, I appreciate it very much.

I’m still a newbie at acrylics.

"The Approaching Horror"

Experimenting with acrylic (newbie at that medium.) Work in progress, 8x8 on canvas board. My kitty Mr. Bobo. Wanted to show this before I finish it because I have a feeling I will probably ruin it in the attempt to finish it.

Ringing the bell today for my last radiotherapy

I will be officially no evidence of disease and will start my Aromatase Inhibitor treatment in a few weeks. Letrozole.

Going out to dinner tonight to celebrate!

Three years ago last night

It started.

I have gone no contact now with my entire family of origin as they took part in the bullying operation, which is a very good thing, but I know I will never really be okay.

The worst part is, no one involved will tell me why I was bullied for three years to begin with.

I'm so sorry. It's very hurtful to be slighted by your family.

It’s absolutely true that in many (most?) families, there is someone who is the designated punching bag, and the family agrees it is a good thing and absolutely right to abuse that victim, over and over, for decades.

I was the designated punching bag for my extended family, and my only chance for happiness was going no contact with all of them.

If you are the one who always gets mistreated by your extended family, you don’t deserve it…and it’s okay to walk away from continued abuse.

Thank you everyone for being so kind and supportive.

My oncotype test came back and I will not have to go through chemo, which is a major relief to me.

Looks like it will be just radiation and endocrine therapy.

So I have a lot to be thankful for as thanksgiving approaches.

I have been going through a bit of mourning for my old pre-cancer self and body but I know I will be happy with my new breasts once the scars are not quite so gruesome and once the swelling has subsided. I think on this cancer journey we all have moments where we need to let the sadness out and mourn, and then carry on.

Thank you all for being here and being you.
