And now, the hair.
One good thing about being an ill shut-in is you don’t see too many people, and therefore you don’t HAVE to shower as much. 2 weeks after my one and only dose of chemo I too my second shower, and there was no longer any denying or hiding it.
Hair was just rinsing off my head in clumps, so I got out the old clippers. With major help from Vanessa, I went all the way. Gotta say… it’s kinda fun, and feels pretty good. I need to keep reminding myself that no, that’s not wet hair on my pillow.
At first I thought “Ok, this isn’t so bad…” Then, as it fell out, “Ok, maybe an extreme part?” Then there was no turning back after the second shower.
The best way is to accept it, and know it’ll grow back. Focus on the good things, a forwardrecovery. And take more silly pictures.
These are still tough times for me. Please get involved, I’d love your help.
