Two Weeks…

Posted in Head Issues tagged at 10:06 pm by adrienne

…to go! Then, my brain will be well and truly zapped (I was going to say fried, but I thought that would be in bad taste). Here is where the treatment takes place, with the wall of masks (it’s a kind of art installation, I think). Here I am, on the table (obviously), with the machine turned on its side. The table moves, too – so it’s kind of a weird ride. And here I am, up close and personal in my mask. It’s solid, but pliable. Think plastic canvas. When it was being formed, I forgot to take off my lipstick and it dried on the mask permanently. But I stand out on the wall o’ masks:)! I’ve lost about a quarter of my hair, but that should be it and I can disguise it pretty well with the hair that’s left and some hats.

    Wow, did you feel claustophobic? I can’t even handle an MRI machine! =) Sounds like you’re in the home stretch. I am thinking of you and hope you feel better.

    The way my mind works: could people knit their own masks? I’m so glad you’re nearing the end of the treatment. You’re strong!

    Two more weeks — that’s not too bad. I would not like the mask; I hope it is a quick treatment.

    You look pretty dashing in your mask. Two more weeks and that’s all, I hope.

    I love the mask! I am glad that you got to keep it. I’ll have to see it when I get back home. I love the lipstick story…haha!
