Hey, look! Kristina Braverman has a full head of hair in the season premiere of Parenthood.
So, I’m not trying to be annoyed by this but those of us who have lost our own locks from chemo know that it can take months before your hair starts looking like a normal head of pre-chemo hair again. I kept a hair diary as proof!
If you are a regular reader, you might remember that I wrote extensively about Parenthood last season and Kristina’s experience with breast cancer. The storyline had some ups and downs for me personally. I also got a lot of hater comments here on the blog about it, too.
But that was last year.
This season it looks like Kristina is writing a new story. In an interview at The Daily Beast, Monica Potter talked about how Kristina is “seizing the day and wanting to go after her dreams.” She also mentioned that Kristina’s experience with breast cancer is referred to but that this season is “the year of celebration.”
I’m conflicted though. Part of me definitely wants to see a storyline where Kristina is moving on with her life post cancer. It’s a place a lot of survivors want to be. However, in my experience, many of us are frozen in fear after finishing treatment. Some are afraid of what’s next or waiting for the other shoe to drop. The area is very gray and I think for the most part we muddle through it trying to figure out our new stories.
