Short and sweet and I hope that this is not offensive to other members.
Had my first chemo session yesterday and entered another world. One full of kindness and boundless patience from the staff at my local centre. All the powers that be, hope that they are always Blessed.
My 'wail' : Nowhere on the wigs catalogue was any provision made for women of African or Caribbean origin. I have shoulder length corkscrew curls and since I would only need a wig for a short while I wanted to go as close to my natural curl as possible. Even the short hair wigs will not come close and though I am willing to go 'alternative' i.e. short and not so curly, I am slightly miffed at the state of things.
Perhaps someone here might know of an online group or support for us 'Heinz specials'?
Ha! That was not as short and sweet as I thought it would be but I wanted to air my 'wail' Of course I will carry on looking and if I find something useful I will blog it. One never knows; there might be another mixed race woman with the same vanity lament.
Now before I get scolded for my vanity, I will say this: I am going to shave and wear scarves when it all comes out but in my very public position at work I would prefer not to be the recipient of a major pity-party. Not going to work for the length of the treatment is sadly not an option.
ps Thanks for having me
