Tuesday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Ever see the "hair dye" isle?
Every color imaginable! They put Crayola to shame.
Has to be over 500 colors, no kidding!
Daily Question:
What color is your hair?

I have dark brown hair which gets a slight red tint in the summer.

When I was a senior in high school me and 4 of my friends went blond the summer before our senior year started and kept it that way through the first semester and the let it grow out.

I think I am pretty close to my natural color right now (except for the gray..lol) My hair is light brown with some blonde. I haven't dyed it in awhile so I think this is the natural color. I am gonna have to do something soon though cuz the gray is taking over. My 9 year old son wants me to dye it red (he wants his red too) not just normal red but like Ronald Mcdonald red..lol I think I will stick with brown.

My hair is it's natural color, I haven't colored it for several years. In high school I was the queen of blonde highlights, my stylist went alittle too far one time and I looked like one of the kids from Village of The darned. Ya know those kids with white hair. My friends all teased me about that, lovingly of course.

Ooops, forgot to mention the color. It's light brown/dark blonde.

I have a unique story on hair, I have never used the hair dyes but have a comical approach on hair changing colors. It was a super thick dead straight dishwater blonde, before it fell out from chemotherapy. Now, the little of what is there is a thick reddish brown and wavy.

I can finally say those stories of how you hear of people getting their hair back in a different color and or different style is true.

Another comical side of this, is I happen to be the only kid of 6 who had blonde hair. My parents aren't even blonde. My mom has reddish hair, and dad has black. Sibblings have black hair or a dark brown. So with my new look, I'm looking more like my family LOL. My poor nephew had the same problem, and I always get mistaken to be his "mom" cuz I was the only blonde lol.

And for the finale, when I had no hair, I'd say I'm having "Bald moments" instead of blonde moments. I'd also scare the crap out of friends (and doctors) with me wearing my wigs. I have one wig that looks so natural on me. I went to my new pcp claiming I was losing handfuls of hair and it was in huge clumps coming off. And he goes "well thats normal your in chemotherapy." So I responded saying "it comes out too much, watch" and I grabbed my wig and pulled it off. He jumped backwards and hit the wall and almost fell out of his chair LOL. Poor guy doesn't know what to do with me...still.
