Advice needed please
Hi Larry - based on your posts, I can tell that wigs are a big part of your life. That is great and it seems to work for you.
For me, wigs are simply a means to an end and not worth discussing at a lunch or dinner or any social gathering. It is not that I am concerned about someone knowing I am wearing a wig, or even feeling bad about it. I wear wigs constantly and I am comfortable with that - but it is NOT a big part of my life. The only time I really concentrate on it is when I am getting a new one and I have to style it. Then, once done, it is just something I wear. If someone compliments me, I simply say thank you. If I had a nice dress and someone said nice dress, i would simply say thank you. I would NOT go into the origin of the dress, or why I chose it, or the cost, etc. Compliments are typically given without expectation of further conversation. My wigs are simply part of my apparel.
I think a lot of people who post here are in a similar place to me - I have been wearing wigs for a while and consider myself transitioned.
That said, I do appreciate that some people are still in transition and have that trauma that I did have a few years back. I come to this forum typically when I get an email from wigs.com
and I am curious to see any new posts. I especially like to see posts from the original posters - as it brings back memories. But I do try to help anyone that asks an on point question if I feel my experience can help.
