It begins...

My hair is beginning to fall out. Not in clumps, but in multiple strands. It looks like what I have in my hairbrush after a week. This came out in about ten minutes:

My hair is starting to fall out. This was in the last ten minutes. :( #chemotherapy #chemo #ovariancancer


I feel like crying. I knew it was coming. I know losing my hair is a small price to pay for fighting cancer, but it's still upsetting to see so much falling out. I'll get a wig and some scarves this week. I have an exam and blood test this Thursday, before my second round of chemo next Tuesday.

This must be upsetting. I get annoyed with mine for falling out, and that's not even cancer related. You're going to get through this, and it will grow back. :)

I'm sorry. I can only imagine how distressing (no pun intended) this is.

Believe it or not, your picture looks very much like my sink every morning. (I comb my hair with my back to the mirror, which keeps most of the hair off the floor.) It's a lot that falls out every single day, but it grows back and yours will, too.

And don't forget, you have a lot of people who care about you and are keeping you in their prayers. <3

I have a lot of hair to lose. :p It's thick. That's probably why I'm not bald yet!


I know it will grow back, but seeing that first bunch of hair just made me a little sad.
