I will never be okay losing my hair again. I refuse to accept it. Some days are better than others, but this is not me. I feel like a weird version of my real self. I am just so angry. Life is funny. You wake up one day and your hair is gone, but it takes months or years to grow back. Funny, funny, funny. I just booked a trip to LA and I dread going because I don't think I'll have a good time as I would if I didnt have to deal with this. I'm just so overwelmingly sad right now.

Is there any way you can override part of the sadness by buying something that you love to wear before you go, or make an appointment for a specialty shop and consultation while there? Then you might be mentally prepared or look forward to something (wig-maker for the stars?) larger than sorrow. Who are you meeting there? Sightseeing?

I, too, am planning a trip, and am in the process of shopping for hats (Wallaroo and Gore-tex), fanny packs, jewelry, comfy shoes, etc. for the beach and beach cafes. Making plans to go somewhere casual and artsy, with people in laid-back attire/no pretense helped me solve part of the bald-head dilemma. Obviously, it may be windy by the ocean, so I have to consider several options if I do not want to be chasing a wig down the beach or among the waves. I may even get a shave before going or while there, especially in front of girlfriends, then let them facepaint my head to make it memorable. No, this won't be the same way I had fun when I was there in 1975, but I can make my own fun out of absurdness now. Think of how you could make this trip memorable in a good way.
