Can we talk?
Its time again to address Linda G Hill’s stream of consciousness prompt: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hat.” Use it literally or metaphorically. Have fun!
It’s now summertime in Texas (ours starts early) and therefore, too hot for wigs. My hair is slow to fill in the super thin spots, so I wear a hat everywhere. The only time I wear a wig is for church.
Yes, I am very sensitive about my hair. I know I shouldn’t be, but my problem is hereditary and I have no idea if it can be reversed. I’m too self conscious to go without something on my head, and the Texas sun, I should be wearing a hat outside anyway, so I don’t see it as a problem, I just wish other hats besides ball caps looked as good on me. Dave says I have a tiny peanut head. 🤣
I worked at a cancer treatment facility for 15 years, I understand people who have a real reason to be sensitive about their hair loss. Yet, I can’t help the way I feel, because I’m still losing my hair, just for a different reason. I think it got worse when I was so stressed out through the hard, difficult process trying to find the best place for Dad before he passed away.
I keep it cut very short so that when I do occasionally get caught without a wig or hat, like when I’m in the pool, it still looks stylish. No one ever sees it really except David, who loves me unconditionally. I guess I should lighten up, I’m aware that covering my head makes it slower to grow in, but even when I try to fix it, I still can’t cover the thin spots. I know my kids and other family members would never say anything if they saw it, so why am I so uptight?
If you have any advice, share it. If you’re driven to say anything snarky, keep it under your hat. 😉
