PCOS is the worst.

In other words, does your innate desire to accumulate sexily, socially-desirable body fat magically gives you PCOS or does the PCOS incorporate metabolic agents that make you gain the fat, to begin with, like a Crisco-laden canary in the coal mine?

The difference between the two paradigms is vast, as one implies that it’s YOUR FAULT you’re sick and the other makes it seem like nature is playing some sort of demented trick on you. Even when doctors sympathize with us, they still fall back on out-dated dietary training from their time in medical school which says that fatty shaming is the best mode of operation even though we’re too lacking in will power to follow through with meaningful diets. I mean, how dare we regain hard-lost weight? We obviously struggle with our weight just to torment our physicians. I watch my diet meticulously yet the weight just trickles off. I often get really frustrated about it, but like you, I just keep soldiering on.

For now, I will continue to plug away at things. I am reading “Good Calories, Bad Calories” by Gary Taubes and he makes some wonderful arguments for why the healthcare establishment is failing us by sticking to a patient-blaming, paternalistic paradigm that is rooted in some fairly dubious dietary science.  It’s a great book. I want to pass along the name of it to any of my Cysters who think this might be useful on their own struggles with this insidious syndrome. I love you guys. I wish you all the luck in the world on your journey.

When shopping online, although you have an item placed in your cart, unless you have paid for it, these items can still go out of stock. Meaning if there is only 1 wig in stock for a certain style and someone else adds it to their cart and completes the purchase before you do, this item will be removed from your cart and register out of stock. Unfortunately, the shopping cart does not secure the item, the purchase is what secures the item.

Can I Cut the Extended Nape Off of My Wig?

November 24, 2020

We normally do not recommend cutting the extended nape off of a wig because it was made specifically for the style, but that's not saying you can't do so. We have had clients write in stating that they have cut the nape felt off completely with enough space for the adjusters and they said the wig fit much better in the back.
