I've been slowly losing my hair since April when I started chemo. I wear doo-rags and wig at this point, I look like a refugee, emaciated and not much hair.

WHY then, am I GROWING hair on my face? I swear, it's like this white coating of cotton hair, not to mention the fact that I could cut glass with my upper lip hair. Oh, and my eyelashes are all feathery and wonky and my eyebrows are very course. And, the hair on my hoo-ha hasn;t grown back since it was shaved for surgery.

strange...OH, and I no longer get ear wax! isn't that wierd? i never need to Q-tip!

I know,I'm wierd. the things I ponder while getting chemo!!!
