Also wanted to share. This is the thing I did - I'm not comfortable wearing wigs (I tried so many kinds and types and just couldn't do it) but I found this 2 weeks before chemo started. It is amazing. I cut my own hair off and now I have a halo wig - made of my own hair. Honestly, I haven't worn it at all yet - even with hair loss. I've felt so strange about all of it. I cannot seem to come to a place of wearing anything but a hat on my head. Anyway, I just think it is very loving and empathic and she handles everything so gently: https://chemodiva.com


Just in case someone else might want to try it too.

I hope this is the right place to post. It was nice to meet folks on the Zoom chat on Tuesday. I am very pleased to have met a group I can connect with about this experience. I promised I would let everyone know how my vaccine went. I am happy to say that my reaction at the clinic was very mild. I did fall asleep shortly after returning home, but today I only have a sore arm at the injection site, so far.

What a relief!

Thanks, everyone!

Hopefully I'll make it to the next group and see you again soon. For now, just know you're not alone - we're all right there with you in spirit!
