It's good that I have choices. Nobody is making me do anything. I don't have to do chemo, even. I can decide. But sometimes I want to have someone just tell me what to do from start to finish. Even before starting treatment, I'm feeling wishy washy about decisions of any kind. Do I want to take the drug Nuelasta when I've heard about bone pain?
Do I want to wear sweatpants or something nicer to my first chemo? And I then I'm going to have those decisions about what to wear on my head!
I did purchase a wig, because I'm a wimp about my baldness, but I actually own about a zillion hats! I could wear a different one every day after I lose my hair! Maybe I should think about that.
I do have a lot of tennis hats I could wear. This is a cap I tried on in the Cure & Co. salon, on top of a half wig. That hair looks a lot like my own.
Or, I could just wear one of those silly hats that comes with a pony tail hanging down!
Then we have the scarf option! And I remembered how Don and I wore matching scarves at Big Bend National Park to keep the swarming bugs off our heads. Hey, we can be twins, again. Don could either buy a wig with me, or we could get matching scarves.
And here's one more idea!
My dear friend, Lorie shared some advice about worrying over no hair. "Just get some sexy earrings!" I was so tickled with the idea that had come from a person, very special to her. And next thing I knew, her own creation came in the mail.
I of course did have hair, so I covered it up and put on the earrings, I made with her mom's coat buttons and wonderful hair-like tassels! may not look sexy, but they make me giddy and happy! Thanks, Lorie!!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
