Staring Down Cancer

Hormone symptoms

It’s been one week since I hatched my plan to run away. I was surprised by all the emails from those of you who thought I was 100 percent serious.  I was only 50 percent serious but I do seem to be consciously (or unconsciously) moving closer to that 100 percent.

My car lease was up last week and since I now have about 1/8 inch hair growth, I decided a convertible would be a great idea!  Soon I will be driving along Pacific Coast Highway in California, feeling a breeze through my hair.

Physically, I seem to be tolerating the male hormone. The only symptom seems to be agitation. The doctor said I might grow facial hair—which is his code for ‘you will grow facial hair!’
