I am 2 days away from celebrating my 46th birthday with the start of my chemo treatments. I am very confident that this is the road to take, but of all things, I find myself getting very anxious about the hair loss thing. I have looked at wigs and hats, and scarves. Then I look again. I even bought some costume wigs to see what colors I liked. I guess I've been thinking that I've handled so much of the "hard" stuff...surgeries, radiation, etc., that I thought the hair loss would not so difficult. But it's been heavy on my mind (no pun intended). I am planning to shave it off when it starts to fall out. I guess I'm more nervous about starting school (7 - 8th grade) with a smooth pate than I thought I was. I will probably wear something, but I am not sure how to approach the kids with this. I've kept my sense of humor about it, but I think I'm sort of using that as a cover up. I will have a major visual reminder that I was invaded by the breast cancer. It's not as easy to ignore as the scars on my chest. I know this is not a major problem or anything, but I just needed to share this with someone. Thanks for listening. God bless you all.
