and unexpectedly I felt quite emotional.  I thought it would just be drop it off and that would be that.  Since I am on Tamoxifen now and no longer get my periods, I can't chalk it up to being hormonal.  You know you are weird when you can't explain your own emotions!  LOL!  Pretty sure the people there think that I am nuts as I was practically sprinting to get out of there!

.......they are used to it.  It's nice that you donated your wig so don't feel ashamed for doing a good deed.  Give yourself a pat on the back and imagine how relieved they were that it wasn't some kind of bomb since you were in such a hurry to get out of there.  I think we should all get a pass on trying to explain our emotions.

HUGS!!!

Dear Clementine,

No, you can't chalk it up to PMS but you can chalk it up to being Menopausal.  I think it's all the same thing.

You did a good deed for someone.   They probably understood as more than likely they were in the same boat as we at one time.

Best to you,

Doris

I can't chalk it up to being menopausal.  I guess even when you don't get your periods you can still be pre-menopausal in the world of Tamoxifen.  Soooo, I guess it is just me being crazy.  You guys are right though - I did something nice and if they had to deal with a crazy redhead for a few minutes, it isn't the end of the world (I will admit though that I plan on crosing the street if I am in the part of town again!!!).

Best,

Clementine

...you're OUR Crazy Redhead, and we're happy to claim you -- whacked-out, Tamoxifen-crazed emotions and all.

If we're around next time when you have to cross to the other side of the street, we'll wave and holler, and I promise we'll embarrass you MUCH more than you could ever embarrass yourself!  I mean, come on -- me + Victoria + VickiSam + Ayse -- we can do some DAMAGE, girl!

Big hug to you,

Traci

Traci, you are awesome!  I am so sure you girls can do more than a little damage!  I think I may have to start walking around with a paper bag on my head.  LOL.  Thanks for the big laugh.

on 1 hand you are playing it forward, and on another hand you are getting on with your life - your new NORMAL - surreal, and emotional.
