Today, my family took me to a wig store saying I wouldn't feel so insecure about being bald because of my chemo treatments. When I told them I accepted myself and didn't want a wig, they came out and told me THEY couldn't accept it. My own family is embarrassed of me over something I can't control. FML

Two things:
First:congrats for your strenght and courage, half the healing process is a mental one, when you know you're gonna make it, you WILL make it! Keep fighting and it will be allright.
Second, maybe what is embarrassing your family isn't your illness but the sheer fact that you're ill and that they can't to anything to help you.
It's not something they can themselves battle against and it may hurt them a lot to see you without hair, a constant reminder that even if they are your family they can't protect you from everything..
I don't know how to say it in english but : Je t'envoie plein de bonnes ondes, courage!

maybe they don't like seeing you that way because it makes them sad that you're sick...or they're just assholes who should be ashamed of themselves.
