Last time I saw it was on my head. Can't blame chemo brain since I have been of chemo for 2 months. I was at work and I became very warm so I took it off and put on my hat. Oh well I hate that thing anyway but I need it for at least a few more weeks as my hair is coming back and is about an inch long. I am embarised if one of my co-workers find it and think it's a dead animal. Hope you all have a good laugh, I did and so did hubby...val

Val, you are so funny. I have to tell you that one day I pulled my wig off and laid it on the chair next to my bed. Yes, I got hot too, so I just pitched it. Well... the dog got it and the chase was on. Yep, you guessed it, I had to get a new one.

You can get a wig from Rosewll Park, you do not have to be a patient there ,just a cancer patient. Also you can get one from the American Cancer Society. I am still having chemo brain months after the chemo, Sorry your story made me laugh because it is something I would do. I hope you find it soon

Did you find the wig? I had not considered wearing one. I am hot natured and really tend to overheat. Are the wigs hot?

That's a good one! Blame it on the chemo brain. I'm 9 months out of chemo and still using it as an excuse :) The only other thing I can blame is just plain vanilla age related memory glitches, and that scares my family more than the chemo, so I'm getting my money's worth from the chemo brain business!

That sounds like something I would do. Lol! I just got a new wig on Monday from the American Cancer Society but don't where it since it is sooooo hot, especially in Fl.
