Yup! No more hats for me! I finally have enough hair to go without a head covering. It has been eight weeks since my last treatment. The bad news is that know I have to shave 😦 Oh well, I can deal with that.
When I lost my hair or I guess I should say when I shaved my head. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. Instead of just letting it fall out I took charge and shaved it myself. It was a lot easier that way. I felt like I took control of it when I did it myself. I got my wig and was prepared to wear it. I did not know when I bought it how I would feel after I lost my hair. I hated my wig. I only wore it once. Now my wig was a nice wig don’t get me wrong. It looked great on me, but I felt false wearing it. My feeling on this was that I have cancer and my hair fell out and I have a right to be bald. I earned it, and I am going to show people that it is ok to be bald. It is not scary, It is a bit chilly, but it was not scary. Sure I had people stare at me and look at me with pity in their eyes. I also had people, complete strangers walk up to me and hug me and tell me their stories of survival. There are so many survivors out there and they told me to hang in there and that they were praying for me. If I had a wig on they would not have done this. I would have never had that experience. It made me feel like I was not alone. That if all these woman could do this so could I.
So I am happy that my hair is growing back and that I am moving forward. But I will miss meeting new survivors in Target. My hair will finally look normal and just look like a cute short hair cut. There is a positive part of your hair falling out. If you can just take it and turn it around and make lemonade out of lemons!
