I'm just a girl named Bella muddling her way through life. It's been a constant battle and most times I don't know how to deal with all of it, but I am trying. I am looking up and remembering the stars. If you want to know more about me, visit my "About Me" Page or ask away! :)
I just want to feel okay in my own skin instead of feeling like I need to scratch it all off.
Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).
The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.
Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.
I fall in love with my friends, with the people who see me down to my soul and still choose me. I fall in love with the ones who give what they take, listen as much as they speak, and find ways to challenge me on a daily basis.
