Tired but happy; got my hair cut today
Friday, March 25, 2011
I am very happy with my new haircut; I did not have to get it cut as short as I thought I would either. I was thinking I'd end up having to have a pixie! Not that pixie cuts aren't cute, they just aren't cute on me. I don't have the face to carry one off. And I was also surprised that I had enough hair for bangs too. I like bangs because they help to hide my huge forehead. It's been so long since I have done anything to my hair besides washing it, so it will take me some time to get use to styling it again, but I have the whole weekend to practice. But at least I have a nice cut to work with. Now that it's been "evened out" I plan to start growing it out into a chin length bob; then who knows; I may even decide to go longer. It just depends on what my cancer treatments will do to it.
Sorry that I have no picture to share; I tried to take one of myself and just could not get a good one. Maybe next week I will see if someone else can get a good pic for me.
This is a big boost to my self esteem anyway; I have been feeling so ugly and frumpy lately. Now I feel like I at least look like a "normal" person even if I don't feel good physically. And to have the freedom to not have to wear a wig or scarf if I don't want too, that is great! I do like my wigs, but they are not that comfortable to wear.
Unfortunately, I am not having as a good a day with the pain as I did yesterday. Yesterday I did not even need a pain pill til after dinner, but today will probably be a 2-3 pill day; I've already had to take one. I did not get too excited yesterday about the lower pain level; not that I am not thankful for those good days, I am! But I know I can't count on them to last. I see my pain specialist again in about a month. I might have to have that left hip looked at again. The pain isn't really any worse, but I am feeling more weakness in that leg.
Still, despite the pain issues today, and being tired, I am happier today than I have been in a long time. A new 'do will do that!
