To B(ald), Or Not to B(ald)

You would think something as simple as shaving your head wouldn't be so emotionally distressing. It's getting very thin, and yet I'm still hanging on. Apparently I'm more attached to this thin, fine, mousey brown mop than I thought.

When this all started I was geeked to shave it, and now that the time is here, I'm finding it difficult to do. But now the mess of hair everywhere is really starting to get to me.

I wore a scarf today to cover my bald spots, and when I came home and took it off a lot of hair came with it.

Sorry guys, but I don't know how you do it LOL

"to baldness and beyond"

  5. Just think of it as your second chance at real hair! Some people have gotten curls and thicker hair when it comes back. Think of me stuck with this thin, mousey, brown stuff forever, and hopefully it will make you smile. I love you.
