I am due my 2nd chemo on Monday. Although I was told I would lose my hair nothing could have prepared me for how it would affect me. I Had my hair cut short before my 1st chemo as it was fairly long,it started to go 6 days ago and I Had another cut 3 days ago. It is nearly all gone now and I have a wig which I hate. I have also tried turbans, scarves and hats but I feel so traumatised by the whole thing. I am not a vain person but I just hate the way I look. As a general rule I don't care what other people think about me, but this is different.I feel so unattractive and I hate my partner seeing me this way. He is incredibly supportive but it must be hard for him to see me like this but I am just so upset everytime I see my self. I just wish I could be one of those incredibly strong women who just get on with it. Please tell me I will get used to it....
