Okay, one of these days I will stop talking about my hair. Maybe. No promises.
Did I mention that we used Tom’s clippers last week and buzzed it off? Yes? Okay, sorry for repeating myself but it’s worth it to declare how much freer I feel now that it’s gone.
I hate being a slave to my hair. That’s what I felt like last week. My hair was all I could think about. Had more fallen out? Was it poking out of my hat? Was it all over my shoulders? Was it going to fall into my food?
Thoughts of my stupid hair consumed me.
So I took control. We cut it off at the root, if you will.
There is still quite a bit on my head, acting as a sort of Velcro for my hats.
But it’s no longer the thing I think about constantly.
So I guess what I’m saying is, if you’re facing chemo and thinning hair, when the hair has taken over all your thoughts, go for it. Shave that stuff off. You will feel twenty pounds lighter, metaphorically.
I feel free and light and like I can get on with my life without policing a near-constant steam of hair falling from my head. For what it’s worth.
