On July 7th I shaved my head. I waited until my husband and son left the house to go fishing and I did it. I dont know what made me finally decide to do it. I thought it was going to be very emotional for me but it wasnt. I didnt shed one tear. I didnt even feel sad. I actually felt relief and freedom. I was glad what was left was gone. I looked at my bald self and smiled. I bundled up my hair and told it "I loved you." I placed it under the bathroom sink. I just could not throw it away, I guess I just wanted some physical evidence that at one time I did have hair. I want to able to see it , smell it, touch it and remember.
I like my head, I like how it feels. I took a shower and the water felt so good hitting my bald head.When my family came home, my son said " ma, you can wear that!" and my husband kissed my head told me I look cute and said we can now get our heads shaved together! (he is bald too by choice,I was always attracted to bald men!) I am feeling free and good about my decision.I dont think I would have ever had the courage to do it if it wasnt for Aw. THANKS TO ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE ON THIS SITE AND ESPECIALLY TO CHERYL AND RJ!
