I know I’ve been slacking on the blog lately, I’m sorry!
I can’t say I don’t have time because I have nothing BUT time, however it seems like I’m always either too sick to write or I’m feeling ok and want to get out of the house and do something!
This has pretty much been my schedule since starting chemo: I get treatment, feel awful for the following 5-6 days, start to feel like a normal human again by the second week, and then try to do something fun before the cycle starts all over. I always need to have something planned to look forward to. It’s what gets me through these treatments!
This week I had a friend visit from out of town. We went to NYC for a couple days and then we checked out Woodstock. It’s been a pretty eventful week for me!
I also got a new wig this week. I have a dark brown, short wig that most have you have probably seen by now and a new blonde one to add to the collection. My new wig was 100% free through the American Cancer Society’s and Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program. To get a wig for yourself or a family member undergoing chemo, all you have to do is call 1-800-227-2345 and they will help you set up an appointment at a location near you.
By the way, thanks so much to everyone who takes the time to grow and donate their hair. I truly saw first hand how big of an impact it makes. I got a great question from someone about the process:
There are plenty of programs out there but the one that I used and know is legitimate is through Pantene and all of the directions can be found by clicking below:
So which wig did I end up picking? To me it was an easy decision! Watch below:
