Wow, that was more confronting that what I expected it to be. I now need a quiet moment to cry, wipe my tears, and hold up my brave bald head again.
What a special woman, to have the courage to share what is such a private and painful part of so many of our lives.
I share many similarities to Gail's story. I have been bald for 1 month. I had 18 months to prepare myself while it all fell lout.
Perhaps in time I might bring myself to view the next 4 parts of her story.
Thankyou aw and gp for sharing this one.

Thanx for showing this. Thanx for explaining. Thanx for caring.
She's a very brave woman. And it hurts to see how she's suffering everyday, even if we share the same pain ... everyday.

I don't know what to say... I wept as I watched it. I admire ( and envy) Gail Porter for her strenght, she is a great role model for woman living with hair loss.

Thank you

I share Gail Porter's thoughts, confusions and feelings. What a WONDERFUL account of all US! I too feel wearing a wig is "false" and "not me". Early days for me though ..... always hold that glimmer of hope that I will return to "normal". In the meantime I just hope and pray that I can have the strength that this lady has had ... to hold my head high and be "ME"! .......... Every credit to you Gail Porter for being YOU as YOU are now ..... Thank you for sharing your experiences with us.

Thanks so much for posting these!!! I've been wanting to see this. Gail Porter has been a great source of strength for me as I've decided not to wear a wig and just be me. Every time I think to myself "Am I crazy for not minding if people see me bald?" or "Do Iook like a freak?", I think about Gail. I wish I could meet her. And, I wish we had someone on TV in the US who was proudly bald.
