Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow



It has started. A few hairs here, a few hairs there, falling gently on my shoulders, getting caught in my fingers as I run my fingers through my hair, or catching on the brush. I wonder if it just continues a few at a time or escalates to clumps on the pillow? It got me wondering if I will wake up in the morning (or one morning soon) sans hair, and if so, what will I look like without my flowing tresses? Actually, I have already cut my flowing tresses to a short bob in preparation of 'the fall.' How bad can it be? Thanks to Photoshop I can have a preview and prepare myself for what may await me one morning soon. Hmmm. Thank heavens I bought a hat while in DisneyWorld last week! Who loves ya baby and where's my lollipop?

I'm thinking of drawing a peace sign or a happy face on the back of my head...a clown nose would be good, too!

I don't want to make light of what you're going through or what you're losing and gaining in the process, but like the other commenters here, my first thought was that the photos is beautiful, that you are beautiful, that without hair framing it, your face SHINES.

As the hair falls out, visualize that you are shedding your illness, shedding cancer cells, shedding all that doesn't belong in your body. Transformation. It's a transformation.

Much like the other commenters here, I'm almost stunned by your sheer honesty and your humorous, potent "I will survive" attitude.

I'm not sure if I would have the power to post a hair-less picture of myself after radiation treatment.

Thanks everyone.

V-grrrl I love your idea of visuallizing the disease leaving the body with the hair, that is super.

Peter....I'm not so sure I would post a real picture of me bald, but since that's someone else's bald head and only my face it was easy.

You just got to have a sense of hunor with something like this. My friends don't like my "I'm not dead yet!" ring tone on my phone, but I think it's hysterical!

Cute Photo Bren....I thought you had a rubber wig on...and as I said before.."no more bad hair days!" I'm hoping to see you soon sis...all depends on this birthing. Stay cool and I think you will be adorable hairless. Hugs and Love..
