I’m feeling yellow on this Day 5 skin care selfie. Day 5. I can’t believe I’m already here and yet still not ready to face the world. Believe me when I say that it’s so much easier to share my new look from behind the computer. I didn’t go to church today. Just not ready to brave the crowds without makeup. Makeup allows a woman to hide. I’ll use it to eventually cover the scarring but for now I’m not able to wear it until the healing process is finished. So for now I have no way to hide.
The bruising is starting to take on that yellow hue. I know that means it’s healing. It’s the stages that a wound goes through. Tomorrow will bring a new stage. For now I’m just feeling yellow.
Skin Cancer Selfie: Day 5
One of my favorite songs…
And fitting for my moment of feeling yellow.
I had other moments in life when I felt yellow. I found myself listening to this song often while I was going through it. One day I’ll open up and share about those times. For now I’m getting through this moment. One step at a time.
Tomorrow will bring the skin care selfie for Day 6. I’m ready.
Protect your skin. Wear sunscreen. Do not tan. Get annual skin checks.
