I’ve taken photographs throughout 2011 but one thing I wanted to log was how I would look from the beginning of my cancer diagnosis to a point where I was recovering and ready for perhaps a new chapter. Hopefully the future will involve better photographs. I chose photographs which didn’t completely mortify me. I’ve left out the hospital pictures – no one needs to see THAT. At the beginning I tried to take a photo of me every day, so I’d be able to see the gradual changes. Unfortunately though I wasn’t always able to take photos due to being too ill or sometimes just too miserable. But, I think I managed a photo from every month of the year. I’ve not taken December’s photo yet, obviously. The first picture was taken in December 2010 – the month my symptoms really started to effect daily life.
