Today I shaved my head. 😮
Back in June of this year after getting caught in a down pour at Disney, Tiff (my wife) noticed that I had a small bald patch in my head.
It bothered me, but unless my hair was soaked it wasn’t noticeable at all. Sadly it didn’t stay like that the patch continued to grow until it reached my hair line which made it annoying to try to cover up. My old hair style too me less then 30 seconds each morning to style, now I was spending a few minutes just trying to cover up the spot in hopes that it would eventually grow back.
I did see a doctor about it who confirmed it was Alopecia areata, She also told me that my hair follicles were still there and that it should grow back. Then she gave me cortisone injections in my head (ouch), and I get to go back at the end of the month and do it again. However in the mean time I am done trying to cover it up so after Church this morning I went ahead and shaved it all off.
So for now this is the new me. I don’t mind it. I’ll probably be wearing a lot of hats because my head is really cold already and it 70 degrees right now. So this winter is gonna be fun!
One good thing about it all is I was able to have a mohawk again for a couple minutes.
