I'm another February 2013 Valentine popping in to wish you good luck for your treatment. As Yankee says, the time goes so quickly and you will receive help along the way.
hugs and best wishes
just to say good luck for tommorow, i sent you a private message, top right hand corner of your page.
I had my haircut yesterday. Not brave enough for a pixie cut but much shorter than usual.
Was a bit apprehensive but really pleased with it. Just a shame it's only gonna last a few weeks.
Just been watching a DVD from 'Look good..Feel Better' which has great tips on make up, nails etc. I would definately recommend ordering one if you haven't already.
Good luck to all of you
