    When I came back from maternity leave after my daughter was born, I was completely obsessed about losing the last 10 lbs of baby weight. I would sit in meetings, completely unable to concentrate on the business at hand, while I focused on how thin all the women seemed to be. I would stare at them in their little pencil skirts, amazed at their ability to tuck in their blouses and even wear belts.

    Here it is 12 years later, and I find myself equally distracted. Only now, in my post chemo state, I’m obsessed with people’s hair. I stare at people in meetings, amazed at how much hair they all seem to have. As I sit month after month waiting for my hair to grow in, I’m in awe of those with a full head of hair; I’m in awe of those who have enough hair to blow dry or to wear headbands or pony tails. Totally distracting. That’s all I can say; totally distracting. Ironic, isn’t it? I’ve had my whole body surgically altered as a result of the breast cancer surgery, and yet the only thing that distracts me is hair…………
