hey everyone,
i need to get this off my chest since i have no one else to talk to. Im so sick and tired of people staring at my son...people come up to me and say wow does he have cancer!...i think thats so rude..and then today i took his meds to rite aid and someone says he looks funny bald...i dont even know what to say back to people...it breaks my heart when people just stare...if you wanna know what my son has please just ask...
Then yesterday im looking back at my wedding photos and im like WOW my son had a full head of hair and that was about 3 months ago i got married...things happen very fast...rapid hair loss and its just getting worse...
In my head i tell myself to be strong and be proud of my little guy...and dont let anyone's comments get to you but its very very hard...i guess this a part of going through this with my son.
All i know is when he gets older people will love him for who he is not what he looks like....
thanx for hearing me out...i had to get this out!
Jose's Mommy,
Shannon

Sounds like right now people (you & he & maybe some others) love him for who he is not what he looks like. Keep it up!

when ppl stare that way.. Just get it to the top of your mind that.. you don't know this person and you might not even get to see this person again.. .. so who cares and y should you or son!!
