Hi everybody!! I just found this site today....I wish I had found it a whole lot sooner because I think this is so great and very helpful!! :) But I'm having a dilemma; I'm 19 years old and I just recently was put into remission from Hodgkin's Lymphoma and a successful stem-cell transplant!! Yay :) I've been battling since June of '07, so I'm very relieved. But I'm getting so tired of wearing wigs!!! I hate wearing them in the first place, so if I don't wear them, I wear a wrap or bandana over my head in front of anyone but my family. I just wanted to how other people handled this problem and when did they start showin' off their heads?? I have a little more than buzz-cut length right now but I just feel so ugly and akward when I don't have anything on my head!! And now that I work again(at a hair salon!! ironic, huh?) and go to school I'm especially nervous to not wear anything!! If anybody could please help me out with some advice that would be great because I don't have the greatest self-esteem in the world and I feel like you guys are people that can actually understand what I'm going through.
