Counts down, hair OOC


Aside: By the way, I've added a handy feature over to the right --->
It lets you get email versions of my posts, so you'll be sure to get the latest and greatest updates. Don't worry, I'll only sell your email address if I can get at least $2 for it.

Brief update today. My counts were too low on Monday to get treated. Boo. I'll see my doc again next week to see if they've come up again, but I've had a sore throat for the past couple days, which will probably not help matters much. Otherwise I'm still a little lightheaded now and then, but it seems to be getting progressively better. I've been having some paranoid thoughts about little aches and pains I keep feeling, but on the whole I'm trying to ignore those - after all, my body is doing its normal aging thing, too, so random aches and pains are normal, right?

Anyhow, my hair was starting to get out of control, so I finally got it cut. Below are some of shots of the "before" situation. These shots don't quite do it justice, but trust me, it was getting out of hand. You'll just have to wait in giddy anticipation (or come see me in person) to see the "after" look. . .

June 7, 2009 - I've never had curly hair before. It's kind of cool, but also very unwieldy, as you'll see in the shots below.

June 22, 2009 - By this time, the hair was really getting out of control, especially the stuff growing out of my sideburns - on one side it would grow straight down, but on the other side it would curl out. And back. And all over the place. Cuh-razy.

Turns out its kind of hard to take pictures of the back and top of your head by yourself. But the thing I really noticed was the swirl of hair around what appears to be a bald spot. . . Well, just another sign that I'm still alive though getting older. . .

It's tempting and scary to use your birds-eye-view technique to get a peek at the humbling badge of antiquity that is my bald spot, but I think I'm probably better off not knowing its extent.

(Is there any way to edit/correct a post without deleting it?)

Trippy to see you with wild and wavy hair - and Elvis sideburns! It does look like there might be a tiny bald patch at the back, but it's pretty well obscured by the bushy hair surrounding it. (Maybe a bright side to the woolly 'do?) I'm looking forward to the "after" pictures!

it's not a bald spot, it's just the whorl! I've got 2 whorls, if that makes you feel any better - 2 "bald spots" =D
