BALD GIRLS DO LUNCH INC
December 5, 2012

Ive been struggling with hair loss for about 5 years. I wore clip on hair and was tortured that everyone knew. I spent tons of money at the salon getting half a head colored and blow dried, but still I felt everyone knew I was half bald. One day I started buying very expensive wigs, and never found one I liked. To me wearing a wig was as bad as being bald. Finally after 5 different doctors, injections, biopsies, and creams I thought this is too stressful. My son suggested shaving what hair was left. I was so afraid to show my husband. When he saw it and kissed my head I felt so much stronger. I also have strong women friends that encouraged me to embrace my baldness, and today I only wear a wig at work. My boss thinks it would be too uncomfortable for everyone. Most days I feel beautiful and different. There are so many more things in life to be concerned about.
