Progression of my hair loss. Top left was Thursday, January 28th. Bottom left was today at 1pm. Right was today at 5pm. My hair loss started on Thursday the 28th. Most of it was gone by the following Monday. It went pretty fast. I'm trying to get used to the feeling of a bare head. This isn't an experience I ever thought I'd have, but I gotta say, I'm pretty thankful for it. I know that might sound strange, but everyone has been so supportive and made me feel so loved that I'm happy for every step of the way. I'm happy for each new experience and aspect of life.
