I lost my hair twice. Once in 1996 and once last year. I think it was worse the second time. I don't know why but I really believed it wouldn't bother me because I had done it before but I was wrong......... The good news is that I've been wearing my own hair for over a month now. It's very curly and I feel so blessed to have it back. I know this time is difficult but remember it will grow back and it will be better than ever!!!!!
Prayers and hugs going your way!
Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
BTW, if you decide to wear a wig, I got mine from www.beautytrends.com.
Even my doctor thought it was MY hair. They're inexpensive and look very natural.
Sweetie, you're gorgeous with or without hair. I'm sorry you're having to go through this, too. Just remember we love you.
Right there with you Cathi . . I am now bald for the 4th tiime and it finally didn't bother me. The first three were tough but this time what the heck. Of course I hate to see myself in the mirror and lovingly refer to myself as "Uncle Fester, ala Munsters". . .good thing my husband is apparently into fat, bald women.
Hang in there!
Hate to hear this and I agree with you, this disease sucks. Was at my kids school tonight and a mom came up to me and asked if I would be okay talking about breast cancer...she was just dx late last week. Everytime we turn around it seems. Hang in there and I think about you all the time.
I knew it would be harder the second time around. I too met you with just ever so little hair and that is how I remember you, but knowing how most of us are about hair, I understand the depression. Like someone said though, you are so much wiser this time because you know so much more and what to expect - not that you like it, but you know.
Hang in there, sweetie, we are all here for you.
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
