    Do you ever miss "Bad Hair Days"? I can remember complaining about my hair, and all the fuss I put into it. Right about now I'd like to have

    a whole string of "bad hair days" together. Especially in this cold!

      I just tried to find the positive in things like that. I could get ready as fast as a man, just shower, a little makeup, put on the wig and I was ready to go. Think of all the money you're saving on haircuts, products, etc. But, it is nice to have my hair back, and it's healthier now (brand new hair?)

      Being a guy, well, you know...we don't care. But I did buzz all mine off when it started falling out and enjoyed the easy, breezy, carefree feeling. But it was nice to get it back too.

      The big joke in our house was "Look how much money I am saving on Shampoo and Haircuts". You have to keep a sense of humor when you are dealing with cancer!

      I finished chemo about 6-8 weeks ago.. (stopped counting), and now my hair is growing rather rapidly. I am starting to look like the actress Judi Dench. Lol. I find it comes back on the head first, then a couple of weeks later underarms, legs etc. My mustache has come back blacker, coarser and worse than ever. And it presented itself before my chemo was finished for three full weeks, had to revive the tweezers. Enjoy it while you can.. soon enough you will be back to same ole... same ole.

Then you can maybe live with all these side effects hair sound like a what ever just save me! I want to live for my family. Then there I was fighting and the hair thing became like such a mind XXX. Sorry for the lang. I stod in the shower with a fist full of hair,I had cut my beautiful hair off it was pretty long but was not ready to shave.i had took such good care of my hair and here it was it felt like it was toasted and coming out every where.my poor mom she told me many stories about friends that went through this but I always just stared and wonder how I would be strong. Being such a girlie girl then something happen to me . My husband asked me to go with him to the store the idea was not to get out of car so I didn't not bring my head binnie.which I never did! I had a couple strans of hair. Then it popped up I had to get OUT of the car putting my strans in place I got out husband leans over say .your beautiful don't worry so I start to walk over to door when out of nowhere the wind starts blowing and my little strands of hair where every where panic set in. THEN a clam set in and I said to my self why is this suck a big deal?! I am living through cancer I should wear this as one of the many sacre. When you find yourself in XXX just kept pushin through it you will come out the other end . Love ya my friend awearness matters let your scars shine.
