I apologize once more for being negative. After all so much good has happened to me that I really feel I have no right to complain. That being said, Eleanor in another thread brought up the issue of losing hair. I know this has been discussed too many times to mention but here's my take.
Why am I so upset about losing mine? I buzzed it off at the 1st sign of losing clumps. When I did buzz it I put on a air of "I don't care, it's just hair, it'll grow back, after all, I'm a man and it isn't such a big deal!"! What a crock that was! Really, who am I kidding. I look in the mirror and I can't recognize the person staring back at me. It was hard to accept this! I try to accept all this but there are times when it just gets me down. The bottom line here is, no matter if we are male or female, our hair is a large part of who we are. At 62, i was so proud that my hair was still mostly dark. I hid a prominent scar with my facial hair, and it further defined who I was. When I lost it all, I lost a lot of my identity.
How did/are you guys handling this issue emotionally?
