On the lighter note

Within two months  following my surgery my hair turned white. I am not talkin grey here --I am talkin Santa Claus terrirtory.  It was amazing just how many people remembered that TV show " Twin Peaks" from 20 years ago and gave me a hard time. This annoys me because while I may have been overweight I had a pretty good head of brown hair.  I was wondering if anything like this happened to you guys.

    HI Santa

    Stress can make the melanin shut down.  My dad started going gray when he was 31, when my mom went through a difficult delivery at my birth.  I only remember him with some shade of gray hair and he was 31 at the time.

    Wear it with pride.  You've earned your stripes.

    Colouring In!

    oh yes! I started the Votrient, and my hair first developed a salt and pepper look, then less pepper and more salt. I headed for the a bottle of colourant at that point. My eyebrows are heading the same way, thank goodness for makeup.
