Over the months I've felt very embarrassed about my hair, being bald, you know, as such. I have a wig, they gave, I get a wig on the national health and I've worn it at occasions where I felt I ought to wear it, you know, where people didn't know about my problem. But I did, I felt I didn't like wearing it really, it itched and I felt it kept coming up, going up, I was going to lose it. My daughter took, she's got an open-top car and she took me out one day and I put this wig on and we drove along the ring road and the wind was blowing and I just felt suddenly that my wig was going to blow off and land in somebody else's car, you know, so I had to keep, keep hold of it. So I put a scarf on on the return journey.
And I've had to buy that many hats because last summer when the sun was very hot I had to protect my skin from sun. Not that I sat out all that often but, you know, wear a sun hat. So I bought dozens of sun hats so that I could go out with them and go back to hospital and everything with it. And then of course winter came and it got very cold and the bit that you feel most cold is your head, you know, they always say that if your head is warm your body is warm, don't they? Of course having no hair I was really quite cold so I've got umpteen little woolly hats as well now. But sometimes I put them on and think that I look like a builder's mate, you know, it's really quite embarrassing sometimes.
