personality


personality

easy to state with confidence

easy to wear when you body is the size it should be

less so when your body changes with drugs and unfitness an disability.

you look at YOU in a photograph and see someone else.

you LOOK like this disabled person whose eyes aren’t working as a pair, and who has gathered weight in the weirdest places, who you see less often, and when you do it is tough not to react with a gasp or a pity comment.

So i TRY to use the consistent things….the ones that scream “HELEN!”.

  • HAIR
  • LEOPARD PRINT
  • SHOES
  • SHAGGY COATS
  • FAUX FURS
  • GOOD NAIL ART
  • STAND OUT SPECS
  • the odd “i-dare-you”-item of fashion
  • MAKEUP….

and i TRY

i try so hard to smile.

social nights are scary.

remember that.

      • I’ve gained some weight to but I still try to dress the way I like and want to even though at my age, there are other elderly folk who seem not to approve so much. But ya know what, I don’t give a damn. It’s my life and my choice and like you life extracts a great of pain from me. So I think it’s great that you do and I can tell from the pics that your personality does shine through. So like I said before, you go girl!!! 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤
