Well I felt instantly like myself when I walked out of the "Look Good Feel Good" workshop in Launceston yesterday. I was tired of being gawked at by the public, and walking around with no hair on my head. Not a fun experience, but I was proud of myself for coping well. It was great to finally meet some locals yesterday and I was blown away with the quality of the free make-up we all were given. I said " Wow I had to get Cancer to own Lancome or Chanel make-up!" they laughed! It was wonderful to be able to spend some time with other ladies in my shoes, and I was definately in a happy place afterward!
Like you I am recently dianosed, had round 2 of chemo. Love your new hair. I have something very similar, and just arrived back at work as a red head. I really admire those who embrance their baldness, but to be truthful I can't even look at myself in the mirror without my pretend hair or little hat....... Bel you look great.......:) i have een following your journey and I hope you are feeling good. For myself I have tolerated chemo well.......
OMG,that wig is terrific.You look great.
Wow! That looks great Bel - you wouldn't even know!
Bel you look great!!!! so glad you feel better with the wig. And Peggy we look forward to seeing your new look. Just want you ladies to know we are all here for you and it's great for us and anyone going through this journey to see how others cope with not only side effects but how we look. So good on you both. Thank you for sharing x
Wow, you look great Bel. Fantastic wig. Good to hear you are feeling well.
Hi Bel! I hope you feel as good as you look :-) It's a perfect match.....oh and while I am giving compliments - that electric blue is definately you colour. ~Daina
funny how I usually wear very neutral clothes , but on both occasions of taking my own pics, I threw on the only 2 bright colours I own! Could mean I need to buy more brighter clothes!! I am feeling well, even earlier than the last 2 times. The perfect diet and exercise is working! I have over a week of feeling ok this time! Thank you Daina for your support all the way through! Bel
It was blowing a gale here in Launceston yesterday and not a great hair day at all. I must admit I still walked around thinking "They know its a wig, they know its a wig!" Didnt feel very relaxed even though I told myself I preferred to blend in than be bald and think "Theyre looking at my bald head, theyre looking at my bald head!" Oh for goodness sake, isnt it just crazy thoughts we have. So grateful its not hot weather, and could imagine it would be hot to wear a wig if it were. I only put it on when I go out any-way.
Here's lookin' at you kid....
I feel a new YOU coming on..
Wig looks good !.. The weather HAS been windy ++ in Tassy the last few days.
I have had 5 swims in the ocean so far. Hoping to get more, either at Low Head or Bridport, before the summer is over.. I do like the feeling after a swim, ( well treading water really. )
It looks fabulous. (I'll have to start believing people when they say it to me !) You are young and beautiful too which makes a big difference. We old ladies can sometimes look even older. And walking around with a few wispy strands is NOT for me.
I have been in a few REALLY windy situations with no problems. It looks a bit obvious when you hang on to it like a hat :P
I only wear mine to work too, it's too hot. I prefer my nice hats and scarves.
Best of luck for treatment
Looks fantastic Bel!
I love the wig, I love the colour of the wig, I love your beautiful smile and I love that blue colour on you, well done. I hope you feel wonderful wearing it.
Lots of love, Mich xoxo
