There are no bad experiences, for even when something doesn't go like we expected, we still learn from them. That's a good thing, we've become smarter.
I learned some things during this weeks 'hair debacle'. First I learned what didn't work, so I won't try that again! That try, though costly, let me rule out just one hopeful endeavor to fix my hair problem, there are still more options. Second, one of those options is a wig, a last resort option, but one that I know will absolutely fix said problem. A cure, fixed, a working solution. True, I will have some discomfort with wearing a wig, both mental, which I will become adjusted to, and some physical, which won't be, or never has been before, as great as having those hair pulling, head itching, not being able to brush your hair properly, pieces of hair attached to my own hair. Sleeping was hell! At least the wig comes off when you don't want it or need it, extensions don't. ...See how smart I've gotten?!! ...sigh
Something else I learned was, as I realized that the extensions weren't going to work, my reluctance to wearing a wig dwindled. ...If you only had one Little Debbie to choose from instead of 15 different varieties, and you absolutely had to have one for your munchies satisfaction, that one would do just fine, and may even become your favorite, given time!
...Do I think way too much? Ya, I analyse everything in my quest to learn 'why'. It gives all those voices in my head something to discuss, which as you can see, didn't leave me alone long enough so I could take that break I said, and know, I need. I've thought it through, it's written, maybe I can put it to bed.
...Oh, I did go get my drivers licence re-newed before the extensions were taken out. A pretty pic for the next 4 years. woohoo!
