yuck. it's about time. . . .

I just shampooed my hair for the first time in about two months. Yuckie, yes I know but there's a reason. Is it a good one? I suppose so.

I have been self-conscious of the possibility that I'd lose some of my hair from the chemotherapy treatments while at school though many of my peers and professors know what I'm going through. I was concerned about the added questions and concern. I know I'm making a bigger deal of this issue than needs to be. Since starting SGN-30/GND (GVD), I've noticed my hair falling out and I worried that after I shampooed my hair that there would noticeable spots of missing hair but after my shampoo this afternoon, it still looks pretty good. A significant amount of hair did fall out in the course of shampooing, but no where near as much I as feared. Basically, my front hairline receded but that's it mostly. Unless I told someone, I doubt they'd even notice the loss of hair. In addition to realizing that it was about time I clean my scalp, I also exercised at the gym this morning which meant that my head was even dirtier from the sweat. Hence, I really needed to shampoo my hair so I did it today. On Tuesday, I plan to get a haircut.

Duane,

I totally haven't noticed any change in your hairline at all.

Not that it means much, since I know you have noticed, but just for the record, I can't tell.
