I must agree,Connolly,
Losing my sanity, and compassion would be horrendous.
At least I can dress myself up and apply makeup to try n make myself
look better, but what would I be like without my sanity and everything else.
Don’t want to think about it, it’s far too scary.......

I think this is a terrific organization, and does so much to lift women's confidence and self esteem  who have cancer, throughout the UK

Rock climbing, hiking and tinted moisturiser/under eye brightener ;)

I've always been active, but felt I was just starting to look tired all the time. I haven't generally worn makeup unless for a special event, but have found a tiny bit now makes me feel a bit brighter.

Always having some role models who are a bit (or a lot - just seen Sheila Hancock in Edie) older to look up to stops me looking back at what I'm not anymore

My mum, who I have always thought very beautiful (think I look more like my dad!) says to enjoy what I still have now. She is 80 and at 57, she still sees a fairly young woman (that short sightedness again!) and strangely, I had been telling my young niece the same, as she is unable to see how lovely she is. Looks do not compensate for ill health, but a bit of glamour and femininity does help us face the outside world with a bit more confidence.  I have now started having the odd evening out (I have CFS/ME and evenings out are quite challenging) and most of them its just clean hair and a bit of lippy, the rest just takes too much effort at the moment! Daisydot, keep being a young girl and keep the flag flying, like your style!

Yeah knorman.
Totally agree, we just CANNOT give up!
I think if we do, we’ll never get out of our own personal black holes,(when they appear)
and we’d stay ‘old’ for good.....my moto is, never give up.
My mom, even when she had dementia, and was in hospital, still asked
me to bring her ‘pan stick’ in so she could apply it. Lol she never forgot about that.
Bless her.  So no, I’ll never give up, I’ll always strive to make myself look the best
I can....

Jd x also , knorman, good for you, keep it up babe, we have to keep going.....

We cant give up ladies im a big fan of getting my hair done and putting on my lippy. Also a good push up bra and spanx helps you look a hell of a lot better and thinner ;)

If I had all the money in the World every day I would have my hair washed, scalp massaged and once a week, an all-over massage ..... nothing fancy, simply relaxing whilst someone oils away any tension.

I rarely look in the mirror  ;)
