*Deep breaths* 😛
My first wig purchase arrived today. I bought it on ebay for not very much money, so to be honest my expectations have been realistic and it was more for a bit of fun than anything else!
Well, it actually looks OK. I need to work at putting it on. I like the colour and shape, but I’m not too sure about the hairline, it looks a bit fake to me. Oh, and the smell reminds me of those My Little Pony dolls! My friend Jenny is a great recreational wig wearer so I will have to seek advice!
I thought I would post pics, but don’t feel ready yet. Maybe in a bit, if I can get it to sit properly tonight! 😀
I think it’s going to be hard to please me on the wig front. I strongly suspect that a wig with a fringe will look most natural, as there is no join with your forehead to worry about (which may be an issue with this one). I’ve never had a fringe in my life, so it’s going to feel funny!
At this point, I can’t imagine leaving the house wearing a wig. I am going to have to get over that one pretty quickly. I know it will feel as if everyone is looking at me- but then I felt that way when I went out wearing glasses for the first time, and of course noone noticed or even looked twice. Unless someone is really scrutinising me, they probably won’t notice. Will they??
Sometimes I can’t decide what I want. On one hand, I want to “blend in”, and don’t want people to look at me and think “bloody hell, look at the rug!”. On the other hand, it would feel like I was sticking two fingers up at the cancer to have lots of different wigs and change my ‘do every other day if the mood takes me.
This is just more stuff I need to work out in my head. Possibly, it is my brain’s way of making me bury my head in the sand at the thought of all the REAL problems I am going to be facing soon.
One of the guys in work commented to me that I didn’t seem to be afraid of anything. Well, I am afraid of PLENTY! However, at this point in time, I think my brain is making me afraid of all the wrong things in a bid to avoid the bigger issues.
