It’s official. The day before yesterday, I started noticing that the hair on my legs hasn’t grown back after shaving. The hair on my head’s started feeling “crunchy.” I expect that after tomorrow’s chemo I will start finding the stubble that’s left on my pillow.
I’m still finding it a little hard to wrap my head around the fact that it only takes me about 10 minutes to shower and get ready to go out now. I used to spend about 30 minutes on my hair and makeup. When I’m not leaving the house, I don’t bother with makeup, and sometimes not even when I am. The great thing is that my wig is awesome and makes me look like me again when I need that for myself.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally enjoying the variety of hats I’ve picked up in the last month or so – the Christmas trees, Santa’s belt and my new favorite, the Mickey Mouse ears I got from my cousin and his wife.
Here’s to a few months of not having to shave and not wasting money on hair products! Woohoo!
