Was getting loads of tips from friend about places to go etc.etc. in the end decided to go with Karen Woods recommendation and decided to with http://hswigcentre.ie/ which is part of DeJaVu Hairdressers in Drommartin which I have been to many a time before.
Met the lovely Hatim and he was just fab and went through the whole process with me. I was really concerned about the price of wigs which is scandalous however my lovely brothers and sister did a little collection for me so that’s one financial thing off my list (the rest of them can go shag off as couldn’t give a crap about bills at the moment).
We had a great chat and he told me how the whole process works. I will start chemo in probably two weeks or so and around a week later hair will start falling out. I always had this dreadful image of me sitting in front of a mirror while someone shaves my head and I have tears rolling down my face. Think I have been watching too much Sex n the City and don’t have the hunky guy like Samantha did to do it for me!
I came out feeling great knowing my locks (or lack of them) will be in good hands chose a really funky wig that I tried to wear home but he wouldn’t let me
Will do the headscarf thing at home but defo wouldn’t be brave enough to wear a headscarf out – some people do that’s fine – not for me – don’t want everyone looking at me with pity and feeling sorry for me – don’t want to be a victim – have no problem at all with people knowing I have cancer but not looking at me and feeling sorry for me (that’s just my feelings about it).
Went off to meet a lovely friend for work and Coffee – Dec Goulding in the new starbucks in Stillorgan SC – had a great chat – really lovely guy both Dec and his lovely wife Jane.
Then off to Vincents for MRI and then the dread of telling my folks who were flying home that afternoon
