Bald as a Baby!

It happened. High-dose chemo will do that. Even just one cycle of it! About three weeks into treatment, I realized I was taking after my cat & shedding all over the place… so my dad & I decided to play barber shop. Now I’m totally bald.

So SMOOTH!

SO smooth….

It feels weird, I’ll admit. But instead of mourning the exterior change or over-identifying as a cancer patient, I choose to welcome the new look as a tribute to my newborn (newly reborn) self. A reminder each time I look in the mirror that I am committed to this journey of inner transformation & deep healing ♥

The craziest part? Even though I shaved it, hair STILL keeps falling out. Yep, down there too. But not my eyebrows or eyelashes? Hmm… All I can do is stay observant & keep cultivating that beginner’s mind. Oh–& moisturize my startled scalp!

Anybody out there have any wisdom or stories of chemo-related hair loss they’d like to share with newbie me? Leave a comment or contact me! I’d love to hear from you.
