I really took the whole hair loss thing in stride when I went through chemo... my only concern was that I not wake up with clumps of hair on my pillow or have to clean globs of it out of the drain when I went to shower or wash it. I made the decision 2 days into chemo to have a dear friend of mine, Matt, come and just shave me flat bald. My only regret has been that I did not think to save and donate my hair.... When I was dignosed I had JUST (as in days before) splurged on a cut color and style. I loved my hair (tho many use to tease me about my color choices)
I delt well with my baldness, despite how cold it made me, it never really bothered me that I didnt have hair. I wore hats and scarfs because P was pretty embarassed by it but really I could care less. It was like a war badge I wanted everyone to know that I was fighting and winning.
Well now I can say that I hate my flippin hair I mean HATE it. It's at that stupid stage where it wont grow back fast enough. I cant tie it up and my "bangs" if you can call them that look like I put them in those squishy rollers and slept in them for a month. ARGGGGHHHH All I ask for is a pony tail!!!
