Day 16 - Up until now I've been able to look in a mirror and walk around in public and not have to think "Hey, I've got cancer". Like I said to Amanda this morning, "I'm starting to look like I've got cancer now".
I have to just not touch my head or it turns into a hair removing session that borders on OCD. The dead hair won't come out with just combing/brushing, I have to pull it out. So it's a whole thing of running my fingers through my hair, kind of twisting and grabbing hair and pulling, but not too hard because some hair is still attached. My scalp is sensitive anyway and it's giving me a headache, all of this pulling.
It's hard. I know ... I'm beautiful, it'll grow back ... blah, blah, blah. They don't call hair a woman's crowning glory for nothing. I
So there was nothing for it but to put on my Shedir & go look at wigs. I let Amanda have the day off so that she could come with and nothing starts the day better than Starbucks!!
I love the blonde and the long red - I'll go back next Friday when Kerwyn gets paid (like my taste in yarn,my taste in wigs does not run to the low-end!!) and get them fitted & styled. Our insurance companies will reimburse us for part of it the rest will be paid back in my happiness.
I've added a poll in the sidebar - I'd love to know what your favorite look is!!
I am trying to get as much fun & living and stuff done as I can during the time when I'm feeling well. OMG - you should see my calendar for the 3rd week in October!!
I baked banana bread - it tasted as good as it looks!!!
I have arranged for a dyeing workshop at Shelridge Farms on Monday; I'm so excited!!! We are going to be dyeing sock yarn but I'm also taking along some Koigu Kersti that I bought on the DKC trip a few years ago. It was a serious bargain because they discovered that the dye was not colourfast. I am trying to sun-bleach them a bit more and then will overdye them with Buffy's help so that I can make an On the Easy Side from Knit One Below.
If my hair can't look great (until I get wigs that is!!) I'm totally going to have lovely hands!! The rings that I had ordered from Silpada came - I love them!!! I've gone through the catalog and marked off more that I want.
