I've been pulling at my hair for the last 10 minutes.
I'm not even angry.
I was just checking to see if it's falling out yet.
Nope, not yet.
Which is normally a good thing.
Except for I buzz cut it last week in anticipation of it falling out, so now I'm obsessed with hair loss. And even though I was guaranteed that I'd lose my hair with my chemo treatments, what if I'm the small percentage of people that doesn't?
Wouldn't that just suck.
Bald by choice?
But I bought scarves and a wig. I've prepared and I'm ready.
I've made plans to be bald.
What is going on?
What?! Cancer doesn't care about plans?
Right, I knew that already. Ugh.
They said 7-10 days after my first chemo dose, my scalp would feel like it was sunburned, and within a few hours it would basically all fall out.
Today is day 11 after chemo and no sunburned feeling yet.
(Perhaps I should've walked more yesterday, it was a really sunny day)
In the meantime I am going to take *another* shower and this time srub my head vigorously.
