Steppin' Out

I put on great earrings and dramatic lipstick and I went to the doctor’s office for my Neulasta injection with a bare head today. And it was completely okay and felt pretty good. People looked (in fact, several people did a pretty dramatic double-take as I walked by), but it didn’t matter to me one bit. The nurses and office staff were all wonderful and enthusiastic about my “natural” look. Too bad I live in northern Illinois; I probably only have a couple more weeks of actually being able to tolerate the temperature outside with nothing on my head.

Now I just need to stock up on some big, fabulous earrings. Most of mine are all way too small and conservative looking to pull off the no-hair look. It's all about the earrings, eyes and mouth when there's no hair on your head. Got that, guys? ;)


Girl! You take bold to a new level. I never could have done that! While I doffed my chapeau frequently when asked I never was brave enough to venture forth completely without! My hat is off to you. Ba-ha! ;-)

Excellent way to begin the weekend and to separate yourself from the AC portion of chemo.

You are on your way!

Kim, I am so proud of you!! I hope that you will take a moment to reflect on HOW FAR YOU'VE COME... just in the past few weeks!!

You sound wonderful tonight, and I'm absolutely positive you LOOK that way, too.

Good for you! Besides you do look beautiful without a scarf or hat!

I'll agree with everyone else--I am so proud of you! That's fantastic. You earn major points for your bravery and your positive attitude.

les garçons étaient dans la pièce lorsque j'ai ouvert ton post avec ta photo, et ils m'ont dit que tu ressemblais à Natalie Portman when she shaved her head for a movie ! Ca c'est un super compliment !!! :-)Tu es aussi jolie avec ou sans cheveux et si tu te sens bien sans foulard, contunue ! Ton attitude est vraiment positive et j'admire le chemin que tu fais !je pense à toi ! Bisous.

I am so proud of you! Doesn't it feel GREAT to go au natural? I love walking around with my bald head -- and if anyone doesn't like it, that's THEIR problem!

I want a pic of that!!!
