I don't like to wear a wig because it irritates my head and with the constant hot flashes, it is impossible. Now that the weather is nicer, a winter hat doesn't work anymore. So, when I leave the house, I usually just go all natural - bald. I feel like a freak. I look like I have cancer. People do double and triple takes, and sometimes just stare. It is annoying and uncomfortable but thankfully only temporary. When I feel like myself again, I will be more un-hermit like.
My very good friend Laura surprised me with a pedicure and lunch today! Not really wanting to venture out of the house, but also not wanting to say no to a friend with such a nice offer to spend time together - I put my tail between my legs and decided to go.
I would not have planned a day of pampering on my own. Since I am unable to lay stomach down on a massage table for a full body massage, that option is out. I can't get a facial because 50% of the work they do is on the scalp and no one can touch my head right now so that it out. BUT LET ME TELL YOU... today's pedicure was absolutely fantastic! My feet and legs were massaged with hot stones and creams and oils and it felt great! Laura and I sat chair to chair and we chatted the whole time, which took my mind off the people with wandering eyes. Looks like I will be going back for many more pedicures!
Thanks so much for getting me out of the house Laura! The next one's on me! And it will be in the very near future!
