May 9, 2013

So.... what fun stuff do I have planned for today? I'm getting fitted for a wig this morning. Am I excited? Uh, no. My Doc wrote a prescription for one, so I figured that I might as well take advantage of it. Problem is, I'm half in denial over the fact that I WILL be losing my hair, and probably very soon. My vanity and I are really going to battle this one out. I know my hair will grow back, but REALLY?! I'm not sure I can rock the Uncle Fester look. At least it won't take me as long to get ready in the morning... bright side?
I mean, I'm ok with my under arm hair falling out!  My right pit is STILL numb from my node biopsy, so shaving has been awkward anyway.  And NOT having to shave my legs... BONUS!!  Oh, and I've always felt like a cave woman admitting to the gals at the nail salon that I've never had a bikini wax.  No hair in "that" area will be a new experience!  I'm even ok with the hair on my chinny, chin, chin going away!!  The eyebrows?!  Eyelashes?!  The hair on my head?!!!!!  Doesn't cancer suck enough without all of that?!!
We're gonna get through this!  There will be tears and no doubt, laughter.  I mean, Uncle Fester is pretty funny and you've never seen me try to draw in eyebrows - that will be hilarious!!!  So, send me amazing false eyelashes, eyebrow tips, wig and other "head" ideas, maybe even some YouTube tutorials on "how to walk around as a cancer patient without looking like a cancer patient".  Let's do this!!
