My dear mate has been through having her breast removed last week- a shock as it was so quick!!
They caught the Big C in good time. But she has to have chemo and Radiotherapthy.
My pal is brilliant- we've been at hospie together, and I was there yesterday with her when they said she'll have to have full blasts and 6 months and all that jazz. She's prepared. She can take any pain, she a tough boot xx
What she is sad about, is losing her hair :-(
When we were driving back, she said she felt ungrateful as she gets to live when treatment is done, but she's gutted about her hair.
She's never worn a scrap of make up in her life. I've been her friend since 1988 and we've gone through thick and thin, and she is not at all a girly girl. But her hair is gorgeous, and that for her to feel gutted to lose that, is not being selfish, it's a part of her identity that is going to be gone for a while xx
She says she feels not a bit lopsided in her head, as she doesn't miss her right Tit, which was removed last week!! LOL xxx
But her lovely hair. She's allowed, to be a bit girly, I reckon xx
So, we've got a lot of crap over the next 6 months, together, my lovely mate and I xx
I really think, in my life eveything happens for a reason. I'm giving up the pub I love, and now I know why I needed to be a lot more free, with time.
I can take a local job, where I am there 100%. Meant to be :-)
When she starts her chemo in about 4 weeks time, I am getting my hair shaved to a Grade 1, and we are going to have wigs :-)
I can't go though her pain, but I can share the hair loss xx We're laughing about it, already. I was always the girly girl, and she's tried a little bit to dissuade me from having my head shaved, but she knows it's futile. We are in this together. She's always been there for me. You lose your hair, I lose mine xx
So, what are your suggestions for suitable wigs- I will need to have a daytime suitable one, for everyday job wearing. Also a fun one, and I like colours, but am 45 years ols so maybe should be a tad sensible sometimes, although that's boring LOL xx :-)
