One suggestion is to consider shaving your head. Some people report that their scalp feels itchy, sensitive and irritated during their treatment and while their hair is falling out. Shaving your head can reduce the irritation and save the embarrassment of shedding. Some men shave their heads because they feel it looks better than the patchy hair loss they might be experiencing. Also, a shaved head might be easier for securing a wig or hairpiece. Something to consider I guess. I didn't mind cutting and even buzzing my hair but I haven't yet wrapped my unbald head around shaving it completely! Any thoughts on the matter?
All in all I'm doing alright. Eating doesn't really interest me and the indigestion is annoying bordering on horrible. I am a little tired but not too bad. The worst thing today was the fluctuating blood sugar levels. It's been running a little high lately so they gave me insulin to inject myself with but only during "steroid" time. So I did inject myself this morning which helped it settle down. I do have to check it again tonight before bed in case I need more. I did take it easy most of the day but chose to make a live appearance on Channel 49, WCFN tonight re: domestic violence. It was a segue from the Chris Henry story. They say that there will be an investigation as to how Henry, 26, wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, happened to fall from the bed of a moving pickup truck driven by his fiancée, Loleini Tonga, in Charlotte, N.C., at about noon Wednesday. Just goes to show that domestic violence can happen to anyone, anywhere at anytime. So tragic.
