Re: I want to freeze my head at home

IWTL has posted several times on the forums, i recently replied to her on one of her other threads " My boyfriend thinks im a dosser!" there have been trolls on BCC before but i believe IWTL is not one of them. Just think shes very scared and cant handle things at the moment. I dont think its odd that she disappeared ,lets be honest there has been a lot of backlash (yes i know her comments wasnt appropriate) still would you come back for more? (she did say sorry if she upset anyone in post 6) sometimes people post stuff in haste without realiseing it can cause offence or upset to others, we do all sorts of things when we are scared and frightened,now people keep talking about her even though she isnt here , I personaly think the thread should close now as it has gone off track from the origional post and is no longer serving its purpose.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi I have been reading this post with both alarm and interest as it has offended so many of us. (edited by BCC) Perhaps the mods can look into it? I have always felt that this forum provides us all with support, caring words and humour and gives all of us, who are all scared, the opportunity to reach out, albeit virtually, and hold someone's hand through this dreadful journey. I would hate the spirit of this forum to be lost because of a very insensitive and lost soul. Let's remind ourselves of all the positive posts and remarkable ladies we have on this site and I personally would like to thank them for all their support and advice, given freely, and also thank the mods who give up their time to check and keep this site safe for us. Let's direct our anger at the stupid cancer. Everything else is irrelevant. (and sorry if this got a bit preachy!) no offense meant or intended. Can we have our nice forum back please?

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

(Edited by BCC) I have been trying to find some of IWTL's other posts but could only find on one the Dec chemo thread. She only posted once on there. Its just seems odd that she has totally disappeared!

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

How are you feeling I WANT TO LIVE ??
We are all genuinely worried about you and your approach to losing your hair. You say in one of your postings that "Life is not fair " BUT nobody said it was going to be! Life is what you make it and create for yourself. I think this will give you time to reassess your life and see how you want things to be different this year with your life , your partner and your friends. You are worth more than this ,feeling sorry for yourself will not help anyone so please get the help you need and deserve. Visit your GP for some medication and counselling.
If you need to rant and rave you can PM me instead of letting the whole forum know your views. Remember a lot of ladies who are new to Cancer read these for help and guidance. Love and hugs Tracy xxx

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Well said JCJ. I agree that we do not like what everyone posts whether it is the original poster or someone who replies. But it was so easy to read that this was not about just someone losing their hair. It was someone who was running scared. if this is not a genuine poster I think the mods should investigate. I am saddened that some ladies have been hurt by her words. But to me she sounded scared, very very scared. Val

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I hope the op has made her decision It is difficult, We're all different.
Me? I wet for a close shave early and then got a great wig from the internet. Others have gone for the 'no hair scenario' and have scarves etc
We are all different.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I agree with JCJ, lets just try and support each other as best we can.
Yes it is traumatic to lose your hair and boob and there is no right way to cope with it. Before treatment I had long blonde hair and big boobs which were a big part of my identity as a woman. But there are lots of us on this forum who have got through this part of treatment and there is light and hope at the end of the tunnel. And yes my hair is growing back!

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

At least 'she' has dumped her emotional baggage, instead of bottling it all up. I hope that is the case, IWTL, and that you are slowly coming to terms with all the s**t that BC throws at you. After all it is our own individual decision whether to take offence at something or not - nobody can MAKE us feel offended, and we don't HAVE to follow any particular thread, if it's not to our liking!

So let's stop bickering and get on with supporting each other through the hell that is BC dx and treatments?!

Hugs to anyone that needs them: bald, hairy, single- or double-breasted, lumpy or otherwise! xx

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

has no one noticed that IWTL has not responded. this also happened in her previous posts. she dumps her emotional baggage and does not come back to take responsibility for what she writes. I know my previous post was harsh - however i have worked in mh services and have come across this behaviour before. (edited by BCC)

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Just bumping this up and hoping that "I do not want to live" is okay. Perhaps she has taken our advice and sought some prefessional help. Thinking of you if you have. Val

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I too have hesitated to post, but feel so strongly about this I am doing so. I totally agree with chascat's comments, it is deeply offensive to call bald women freaks. I lost my beautiful sister at the age of 32 to this vile disease, she left a 5 year old son, and I can assure you , given the choice, she would have remained permanently bald if it meant she could live. I was diagnosed with breastcancer in June of last year, have finished treatment and now have a full head head of hair. Of course it's traumatic for a women to loose their hair, but it is only temporary. I do hope that I want to live gets the support she clearly needs and that she feels she can continue to use this forum, I also hope her comments haven't frightened or deterred any new users from posting and finding support that they might also need. To all of the lovely ladies out there fighting this cruel disease, bald or not, I wish you all a healthy and happy new year. Michelle

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Yes I do agree that we're all different and our coping (or not coping) strategies may differ but I don't think any of us have been unkind or disrespectful, I was kind but was called a freak, I won't bother next time.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I think this thread is going off track a bit, even though i agree IWTL view is maybe a bit extream to most of us, she is obviously haveing a tough time dealing with things at the moment , i dont think its right to talk about somebody in the third sense either, i notice IWTL hasnt posted again today so hope she wont be put off useing the forums, am sure her comments were not meant as offensive ,( i certainly didnt take them personaly so didnt find them offensive) think she was just saying how SHE felt about being bold, but proberly didnt express it very well. (eaily done in the written word)
There are many different people that use the BCC forums, all with many different personalities and ways of expressing themselves , some of us cope better than others, maybe if we cant be kind and respectfull to each other its better not to say anything at all.
Hope the thread gets back on track .
Linda

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Elki, well done you on having such a positive attitude. I was dreading losing my hair, but when it started to fall out I got it clippered off. It was a lovely feeling! I went commando a lot of the time, but luckily for me it was through the summer. I found it totally fine, people did not stare really and it was very liberating. We had a motto on the March thread, bald is beautiful. I do totally understand that it isnt for everyone, we each have to find out and do what makes us comfortable, but one thing I did realise was that losing my hair wasnt nearly as traumatic as I though it would be before it happened. It became a very small part of the treatment.
Very best wishes to you

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Morwenna, I agree with Chascat her comments are offensive and not helpful to new ladies going through chemo. Yes losing your hair is stressful but no comparison compared to the bigger picture.
Sue

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Elki - you have a brilliant attitude which will help massively with your treatment. Someone once said to me they thought bald women looked beautiful and I agree. Once I lost my hair I felt liberated and relieved as my head was so painful when my hair was coming out. I embraced my baldness (I dont criticise anyone who dosn't have the same confidence) but it worked for me and I didn't give a damn what people said and if they stared (hardly anybody did) I wasn't bothered.
I'm sure you will look great. Quick tip though you might need a wooly hat when it gets cold!!
Best of wishes and hope your treatment goes well

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi IWTL. I'm really sorry the thought of losing your hair is so hard for you. I definitely agree that you should talk this through with your nurse. I've also had a meeting with Head Strong, who were very nice and helpful about alternative headwear, and I've already got my wig on order. Maybe taking some practical steps like this (as well as the cold cap, which I hope will save much of your hair) may help you to find ways to cope.
However, I realise this may be a weird perspective, and may not be entirely helpful, but as a different viewpoint... I'm actually quite curious to know what I'll look like bald. I cut my boyfriend's hair with clippers every few weeks, and we're always joking that one day he should cut mine. Now it's actually going to happen. As soon as it starts falling out, the clippers are coming out, and I get to be the clippee, rather than the clipper. Also, years ago, a male friend of mine shaved his head, and said it felt totally amazing in the shower, so I'm looking forward to that sensation too.
I guess all of us deal with this in different ways, and focus on different aspects as far as the distress or control is concerned. But I think it's really great how many women embrace their new, bald selves, even for a few months. I'm proud to be part of this (soon to be) bald gang of fighters!

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

IWTL you are understandably angry, no-one wants this disease and like you, I was originally told radiotherapy only but was then asked to decide whether or not to have chemo as there was a small chance I would benefit. That came as a complete shock as I hadn't expected it BUT I never want to regret turning down treatment so I have had the chemo and no, it is not fun but we all get through it somehow. I have kept my hair using the cold cap, it is not the lovely thick hair I had but it is there and I don't need wigs or hats. It was my choice to try and keep my hair and I am glad I did and I have got used to it not being as it was before.

As many others have said, you really do need some professional help to get you through this difficult time but in the meantime, I feel happier that you are letting your feelings out on here than bottling them up. You need to be able to express how you feel and I hope you get the counselling you need to help you understand and manage your feelings.

Take care

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi...I've held back from posting on here for fear of saying the wrong thing..IWTL..I just want to say..there is a lot of support from everyone on this site but wanting to freeze your head is a bit extreme....the only thing it will do for you is give you a headache!!!...as all the lovely ladies have said..it is a v stressfull place where you are at the moment but...it does get better....you need the chemo..it is vital to deal with the cancer..if you loose your hair then so be it...this is coming from someone who nearly collapsed in a heap when chemo was mentioned!!!..I lost all my hair...but I am still here for my family and for myself..I got my hair cut in 2 stages...one..my bob was cut short and then had it clipperered off when it started to fall out..if you are worried about a bald head screaming cancer then do what I did..I got a wig exactly like my normal hair style and wore that outside..no one knew the difference until I took it off in the summer as it was too hot to wear it...I have a feeling the lack of control is making you anxious..try to remember that this will pass and your hair will soon grow back and as other ladies have said..please don't try to deal with this on your own..phone your BCN or the helpline they are very good...obviously you are scared but this is normal..you didn't have an Mx and if you can fight for that then you can find the courage to deal with this...best wishes apple

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi iwtl,
Our mind is the most powerful thing we have alongside our imagination. I am not going to say think positive because that is very hard to do when you are feeling like you do, but I do believe that you need to accept what's happening to you as you can't change it. This disease is horrible and none of us wants to be here, but we are and more,importantly we all want to live for our families and also ourself. Please speak to your gp or your breast care nurse and get help, anxiety will make a situation much worse and put extra strain on your health. im sure you don't mean to offend anyone with your comments but sometimes we need to watch what we say when it affects so many woman on this forum especially new members.
I hope you seek help soon, believe it or not, you won't always feel like this, things do get better, take care xxx

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I'm sorry but if I find the post offensive I will say so. In your own words the forum is a place where we're supposed to be allowed to express how we feel, and I feel offended. When i and so many others are so desperate to survive, I will not do the hippy pc lets all have a hug clap trap, I will say I'm offended.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Very nice post Linda!
I do think IWTL should seek counselling to help her deal with this, but I don't think comments like "Get a grip" etc are helpful, nor is getting angry or offended.

This forum is a place where I thought we were supposed to be allowed to express what we are feeling in a safe environment with others who will understand. Everybody has different ways of dealung with this terror. It doesn't help the poor girl to jump down her throat. 😞

Hugs to us all. This is a terrible thing we must endure, but the vast majority of us will survive it, and supporting each other through our psychotic episodes will help!!

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi IWTL, i was realy sad to read your posts too, but take a deep breath and try to calm down a bit, its horrible loosing your hair ,ive lost mine twice now in 5 yrs BUT its a small price to pay to get better. There are some fab wigs available now (even non cancer ladies/celebs ect wear wigs/hair extensions all the time ) or lovely scarfs if your not into wigs,and the plus side is (and there are some) youll never have a bad hair day, no roots to get done ,and no hair cuts!! Am sure if you look online you will be able to find something very simular to your own hair so please dont dispair. Sometimes life throws stuff at us that we have no control over and unfortuately we have to get on with it, (what choice do we have) IT WILL grow back, its not permanent, and although it may not seem like it right now there are a lot worse things that can happen in life. whenever i am feeling down or feeling a bit sorry for myself i look to all the children who have to go through this rubbish and it gives me a well deserved kick up the backside ,keep reciteng your username IWTL, and always remember beauty comes from within ,your NOT a FREAK being bald, NO ONE IS!
It may be worth seeing if there are any local support groups in your area so you can meet up with other ladies going through the same right now , it does help knowing that you are not alone,
Deep Breaths! Linda x

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Just read this and want to add my bit,bald women are not freaks and it is offensive to say so,beating this awful disease is what matters and many ladies who go bald through treatment look fine bald,indeed can look beautiful,look at gail porter.Also if it was that bad,then why would some ladies friends and family members also shave their own heads for charity and in support of their loved one,time for IWTL to get a grip as Carolyn has said,these forums are supposed to offer support and IWTL is in dire need of proffessional help before she affects some of our newer members,

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

hi
we are all scared and dont want to lose our hair ,boob etc its just that some people handle it better then others i start chemo in january and am really scared but i have to do it whats the alternative ???????
jenny xx

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

my view for what its worth is that we are all trying to reason with someone who is clearly unbalanced and not thinking straight at the moment and her views are very extreme to say the least! Councelling is what 'I Want to Live needs' if you are reading this you need to go and seek help from the professionals - losing your breasts and losing your hair are things whilst you cannot control you can come through the other end... but you need to seek help and get mental stability this will help you face the future and the uncertainties you will have - if you really want to live (as in your title) do this and do this immediately losing your hair is the least of your worries...... x

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I actually find your comments deeply offensive. I went through chemo last year, lost all my hair and embraced it. The women I met, also bald did not look like freeks they looked beautiful. Getting rid of the cancer is the most important thing.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I found i want to live's posting sad. I have read her first post and that was also quite sad. There are other issues going on in her life apart from the bc. Her posts tell me she is in need of counselling - which is available no matter what area you live in.
However, im am choosing to go bald and I will defo not look or feel like a freak - if my husband oh or what ever you want to call him, didnt like it - tough ****. I also wouldnt let my oh tell me im dossing. I would tell him to jog on.

From I AM NOT A FREAK BECAUSE IM BALD - which is a total insult to woman.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

It is time to change your life priorities and way of thinking (the mindset). It is not happening in a day - it's will take months. Everyone's life comes a time when it should be done. Whether you have cancer or a hair falls out, or you are physically and mentally healthy. I am totaly agree with kellc.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I think it's only natural to worry about losing your hair. It's part of your identity. It's bad enough trying to cope with everything else to do with breast cancer without having to worry about losing your hair.
I used the cold cap and lost about 60% of my hair. My chemo stopped in July and my head still feels really sensitive to the cold even though the hair is growing back. I hated the way the nurses used to say to me "Just think your hair may grow back a different colour and be curly" as if it was something to look forward to. If I wanted my hair to be different I could dye it or have it permed.
I have had to have my hair cut shorter and initially had my fringe cut from the back of my head so I had a lot of hair to comb-over which reduced the look of thinning hair no end.
In the whole scheme of things losing your hair isn't the worst aspect of the treatment. Check out what type of wigs are available through your local NHS. I bought a fabulous long haired one. A friend and I had a couple of great days out trying on wigs and getting the giggles about how funny some of them looked.
Clever use of brow pencils and eyeliner disguised the loss of eyebrows and eyelashes and once they grow back use Benefits They're Real mascara which makes any lashes look fabulous.
I hope the cold cap works for you. I think it's worth persisting with it even if you do lose some hair. I was amazed at how much hair I lost while still keeping a reasonable amount of cover on my head.
All the best, Calyco

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Sorry if I sounded harsh but it does get better

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Going bald is the least of your worries
It does grow back without the chemo so does the cancer

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

And mine was curly pre breast cancer and has come back curly and I love it as well!

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Dear I want to live, I am sorry that you are feeling so scared about everything. I am undergoing chemotherapy right now and my hair is slowly falling out. It brought back memories of the first time that I had chemo for BC. I found it more upsetting losing my hair than having a mastectomy because when I looked in the mirror there was no more denying that I did in fact have cancer and I was so scared. But I did have the chemo and my hair grew back in. I did not want the chemo. It was a particularly toxic and nasty type of chemo that they no longer use now for BC. I had horrific side effects that resulted in me having to be admitted to hospital a couple of times. But I got through it and my hair did grow back.
24 years later, having had other chemo since I found that my BC had spread to my bones, I am now back on chemo again, called Taxol which I have to have by infusion every week until April.
I think you must try to speak to someone you trust to talk about your fears and exactly how you feel. This coud be someone at a Maggie Centre if you have one near you, or a Mc Millan Nurse, or your Breast Care Nurse or your GP or Consultant. Any of the above who you feel you could talk openly about this.
I remember feeling scared, angry, upset and bloody furious when I had to face the same thing as you. I was 39 the first time I had to deal with this. I had a great Breast Care nurse who held my had and listened to me.
What you are feeling is not unique to you. What you are feeling is very common so do not feel a freak. You are bound to be feeling scared and anxious. All I can offer is a helping hand. To let you know that you are not alone. I know that my fear of not being here at all won in the end. I so wanted to live and the loss of my hair was such a small price to pay for having extra time with my loved ones. I wish you well and hope you can come to terms with this with some outside help. You need not try to deal with all these issues on your own. PM me any time if you want some support. Hugs for you, from Val

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

My god get a Grip! Surely getting rid of cancer and ensuring you do all you can to keep it away is more important than hair! Yes it goes but it also grows back. I lost I mine I march but now it's back thick and curly.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Very true Chascat, losing your hair is traumatic but a small price to pay. Mine is growing back thick and curly - not as it was but I love it nonetheless xxx

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I quite agree with Chascat, I also lost my hair - now months later it is growing back and I and my family are very grateful that i am here. Not fair is dying and leaving a young family.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi IWTL,
I think I know how you feel! I was diagnosed in October 2012, and one of main fears was loosing my hair. I have had quite long hair all my life.
I have two children and my nine year old son was devasted that I was going to go bald, we had lots of tears. I promised him that I would do everything to keep my hair.
Before the my first treatment I got a great wig and bought loads of hats just in case...desperate to plan ahead, I had my hair cut to shoulder length to take some of the weight out of it.
During my first Fec treatment I had the cold cap, I just kept thinking 'This is for Jacob!"
After my first treatment my hair started to thin. My son got increasingly worried.
I then had it cut to a funky choppy style that I loved!
The day before my second FEC, I decided not to have the cold cap again. For lots of reasons but sat & discussed it with my family.They all agreed with decision and my reasons.
My 2nd FEC treatment was so much easier and quicker, however within the week my hair was falling out at an alarming rate, it was everywhere, driving me & everyone potty!
On 23rd Dec, my hairdresser used the clippers on my hair. I was devastated! I cried, my sister cried! My poor hairdresser didn't know where to put her face. I ran upstairs cried again, put some make up on & my wig.
Since that day my fear of hair loss has reduced significantly! Its already happened, it's not that bad! Over Xmas we had a few outings, my son asked me to wear my wig or a hat but I just didn't want to. It felt strange, not sure why! However, he came to me and said, "mum, I'm feeling so much braver....nobody looked at you once! I then felt braver too. I went to our local pub today for lunch & nobody even looked! I feel that I've gone from the sublime to the ridiculous on this journey with my hair !
Apologises for my ramberlings I just wanted to try & reassure you that its not the end of the world! I'm not vain, just wanted to stay feminine.
Good Luck!!!
Jx

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Temporary means it will grow back, no it won't be within a few days but it will grow back. I had very long hair too, I need long hair to feel attractive. I was told I'd only need radio, I have a 5 year old daughter, I worry myself sick that she'll grow up without me, life isn't fair but you have to cope with the hand that has been dealt. You didn't upset me saying bald women were freaks, but saying you'd rather die than lose your hair does. None of us want to lose our hair but I'd do ANYTHING to live.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

I am sorry if I upset anyone but to me I WOULD ALMOST RATHER BE DEAD THAN BALD. I NEVER WANTED CHEMO. THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD PROBABLY ONLY BE RADIO. IT'S NOT FAIR. Temprorary would be if the hair grew back to exactly what it was within a few days or a couple of weeks. It takes months for hair to grow back short and YEARS to grow back to long. I have long hair, I NEED long hair to feel atractive because I only have an average face. My looks are about to be ruined.
The surgeons tried to chop off one of my breasts as well.
All I want is to live a normal lifespan, have the normal number of breasts and long hair. I HATE MY LIFE. IT IS RUINED.

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

IWTL, IT IS TEMPORARY! I didn't' use the cold cap, couldn't be bothered. Did I like being bald? No. Was I a freak? Most certainly not. I may have been a bit different but so what. If I sound like I was bald and proud I can tell you that is so far from the truth, my heart broke when I lost my hair, even though it's now grown back the memories are still really distressing. I didn't want anyone to look at me, I wore a hat everywhere all through the summer and boiled half to death but took comfort knowing that if it had killed my hair it would kill the cancer.
It will be over before you know it.

It is a HUGE thing being bald.
I know this is blunt and politically incorrect but it is true: bald men are normal. Bald women are freaks. Also I am sick to death of everyone saying it is temporary. It is NOT

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hello IWTL

I posted this picture earlier after 5 FEC - PM me if you want any cold cap advice - obviously I can't say if it will work in the same way for you but it is worth trying.

http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/comment/2072428#comment-2072428

I do understand your feelings about your hair as I was the same, having said that after the 3rd FEC although I was pleased to be keeoing my hair, it didnt seem as important and I have a wig just in case (still unworn).

Good luck

Re: I want to freeze my head at home

Hi IWTL -
Your head only needs to be cold during the chemo infusion - there's nothing to gain by being cold the rest of the time (except maybe hypothermia!).

Do you know why baldness bothers you so much? Is it that it may be the only visible clue that you have BC?
It really isn't a huge deal in the scheme of things, and it is only temporary - have you got yourself some nice hats and scarves to wear, and/or a wig?
I never bothered with a wig - I wear a hat (sleep cap) round the house, and and dress up with scarves when I go out - often with bling jewellery attached. Sometimes I wear the sleep cap and a Fedora when I'm out - it looks quite smart.

One thing I do recommend is eyebrow makeup - it makes a huge difference to your face, and so seeing yourself in a mirror is less of a shock. (I use Browzings by Benefit).

I want to freeze my head at home

I am terrified of going bald. I've had first cold cap. I'm scared it wasn't cold enough and it won't work. I had it on Fri 28. I think my hair will fall out next week. I'm terrified.
I tried freezing a water bottle and holding it on my head. I don't think it's cold enough. How can I freeze my head?
