The Hair upon my head

One of my biggest failings is talking about the things that cause me physical and emotional pain. I prefer to keep things positive, tricking my brain into positive thought.

But now and again that thought process suddenly reverses on me, and I’m suddenly stuck with the thought that NOT talking about it, is just another way for me to hide who I am. And I don’t like hiding anymore. I hid for too many years not being true to myself.

So here goes … dysphoria! My #hair is both a source of #euphoria and #dysphoria for me. I always try to keep it healthy and well treated. But now and again I am reminded that my hair is extremely thin and even with hair treatments, ultimately getting worse. My situation is not unique. Not even as a woman. Many woman, even cis women suffer hair loss and thinning hair.

I didn’t have a point. No moral story to share. Just putting it out in the world. Convincing myself that this too is normal. For many women.
