I did a search on Google for cancer survivor and hair envy.
But nothing came up.
How is that possible?
Hair envy for cancer survivors is not a thing?
It is most definitely a thing!
Even now, five years after my cancer treatment ended and I still suffer from hair envy!
It took a lifetime to grow my awesome long wavy hair.
And I loved it.
It really did mean the world to me.
And then cancer came along.
And it was bye bye beautiful hair.
I remember the day I finally accepted the situation and shaved it all off.
I remember it as clear as if it was yesterday.
I held my mother’s hands and I sobbed and sobbed.
I sobbed so much I couldn’t breathe.
For me, losing my hair was harder than the chemotherapy and mastectomy.
At least I was given drugs to deal with those!
Now, when I’m out and about.
And I see a girl with long beautiful curly wavy hair.
Just like mine was.
My heart aches.
I start to pine.
I yearn to have my beautiful hair back.
I yearn to have hair just like hers.
So yes cancer survivor hair envy is most definitely a thing.
Don’t get me wrong.
I am very very grateful that my hair has finally got as long as it is today.
Way back when I finished treatment it felt like my hair would never grow back.
And I am very blessed because it has.
But there’s nothing wrong with a bit of hair envy now and then is there?!
