So I am still not really sure how I feel about this condition. Most of the time I feel positive and happy that, honestly, just my hair is falling out. The thing is, when I first started to notice that my hair was starting to fall out I was worried that there was something seriously wrong with me. After two doctors not being able to tell me what was wrong, the third looked and told me right away. Third times the charm, right? Well for a while I only told those closest to me what was happening because I did not want to draw attention to it if my hair was going to grow back. It has reached the point where I have to start to tell people because I do not want people to we shocked when I walk into class or work with a bald head.
Overall, I forget that this is an issue. Mainly because it could have been worse. And I am so grateful that it is just hair. I have an amazing support group that helps me though the days where I do not understand why I am 21 and used to have hair down to my butt that was extremely healthy and now I have hair that is a little past my shoulders and there is hardly any left of it. I hope that I can continue to remember that it is only hair.
