London, Jan 18 (ANI): Cancer-stricken Jade Goody has revealed that her disease doesnt her haunt her as much as its effects.

Goody has gone bald after undergoing chemotherapy and is exhausted trying to hide it.

And she wants people to see the ravages of the disease because she says it will help herand it will prepare them.

My whole life Ive had to laugh at myself before other people do. Ive had to deal with stuff that other people have never had to deal with. Its better that I say bad things about me before others do, News of the World quoted her, as saying.

And thats why Im doing this now. I know people will say, Why is she whacking her bald head out in a newspaper?

But Id rather people see it first and then have their reaction away from mein their homes or at their breakfast tablesand not in front of me. Because that would be too hardfor me AND them.

Theres going to come a time soon when I take off my headscarf and I dont want to walk into Tescos or wherever and have people staring at me with their mouths open.

And yes, maybe its easier for me to do something like this because Ive lived my life in the public eye. Its what I do. But I actually AM sensitive. I AM human and I want to get this over with, she added. (ANI)
