My hair has started coming out…if I scratch my head or run my hand through my hair a measurable amount of hair comes out as a result…You can think you are somewhat prepared for when it is going to happen…but there is simply NO way to be prepared…this sucks!

It’s obviously TOTALLY okay that it’s hard, but I can imagine you rocking it eventually, with hats, scarves, or au naturale. Jana

Yes, loosing your hair sucks. No doubt. But it’s just hair. It does grow back. Even though I couldn’t control the hair loss, I could control HOW I lost it. I had a head shavin party. I invited my close friends and family, we had a pot luck, and they took turns with the clippers on my hair. I’m not sayn that’s what you should do. But it helped me have some control in what seemed like an out of control situation. Email me if you want to talk more. Praying for you. Blessings, SusanD

During my treatments I met many bald ladies and I was amazed at the beauty of each one. I little bright lipstick and some pretty earings really set off a womans face when there is not a hair-do in the way. I will keep you in my prayers.
