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."
Hi Michelle! Very smart to have your wig ready when you need it. I went to my beautician. They had a specialist that did nothing but wigs. He did a great job for me and no one knew that it wasn't my hair. There were times that it drove me nuts and I just wore a ballcap. The American Cancer Society, your local office, has wigs that they give away. Also, most major hospitals that treat cancer patients will have wigs to give away also. My insurance paid for my wig but I had to use the words "carnial prothesis" instead of wig. :rolleyes: Losing your hair is tramaticm whether it is the first or third time. But, you have control in this area. You will be the one to decide when you have your hair cut or buzzed. Hang in there. WE have all experienced it and will be here to give you lots of hugs, love and support as you go thru this.
Lori: I basically did the same thing that you did. I can't stand pets that shed so, when my hair started falling out, I had it cut shorter and shorter. Finally one day I told my sil to buzz it. (she is a beautician) I didn't wear my wig but put a baseball hat on. My dd and granddaughters lived w/ me. When my eldest gd came home (she was 6) I asked her what she thought. She looked at me, rubbed her hand over the stubble on my head and said, "well, it's not bad Nana, but wear your hat when my friends come". We all still laugh about it. As for the wig and the prothesis. I hated them both! So, as soon as I would get in the car from dinner or a meeting, etc., the wig would come off. Then the bra w/ the prothesis. Both would be pitched in the back seat. Talk about FREEDOM! rofl My bf told me that if we ever had a wreck, that the 2 of us would prob die because the authorities would be looking for a 3rd person when they saw the wig and "boob" in the back. Ahhhh, to have good friends that care!
Michelle, take control and have fun!
Sex kitten?!?!?!?! I'm having my last reconstructive surgery next month. My husband (and half the men we are friends with HA HA) was hoping that I'd go for the Pamela Anderson chest!!!! I put my foot down there!!! Cancer wasn't very much fun but I am looking forward to the perky, new chest next month!!!! I guess when life gives you lemons, sometimes you really can make lemonade!!! HA HA
Good luck with the wig and the rest of the treatment!!!
