A new me

Posted on February 19, 2011 at 10:25pm 5 Comments

I just started rocking my bald head this past summer and 'm still not as comfatable with it. This seems to be the biggest thing to get used too. I still pass mirrors and double back saying is this really me? I get so many stares that it has made me feel like something is wrong wiht me. I try to tell myself I'm not defined by my hair or should I say the lack of my hair but it has really taken a toll on my self esteem. Will I ever get over this??
