today's a sad day for me.....

I've decided it's time to shave my head. *wide eyed stare* I know. *tear*

I woke up this morning around 5am with a pounding headache and the crown of my head feeling like it was on fire. My hair and head have been hurting for about four days now and I'm tired of it. I've also been noticing more hair coming out with each passing day and when I brushed my hair after my bath this morning the amount that came out sent me into a long prolonged sob. I cannot do this. I cannot just let it fall out willy nilly without taking charge of the situation. I can't watch that brush go through my hair each morning and have more strands come out with it. I cannot look at my hand as I bring it through my hair and come back with more hair in my fist. I can't do it.

...but I also can't shave my head...

...but I have too...



  1. I wouldn't be able to stand it either. You are doing the right thing by facing it and getting it over with. I can't wait to see you in some of those cute scarves your friends so lovingly gave you. Now maybe it will be real to them too. Oh me, oh my I'm eight years old and turning gray and now my Tuba will not play!!!! I love you so much that I think I'm having head hurt and hair falling out in sympathy.

  2. just think when it comes back though it will be fresh virgin, never dyed, permed,element exposed hair so you will get a beautiful new start.And who knows you might end up being a hot red head instead of a hot blonde!!!! lol

  3. I'm thinking of you as you go through this.

  4. Thanks for letting us all support you through your journey. And I am touched that you let me get the first cut!!! Who knew you had such a beautiful head??! You are hot, hair or not! l
