So long, and thanks for all the fishThis is the end. Not because I have had six miscarriages (the final one is in the post), not because of the physical, emotional, financial strain. The reason we are stopping is because I am going bald.
For the last couple of months, I have experienced severe hair loss. I lose small clumps constantly throughout the day and every time I wash it or run my fingers through it, I remove large handfuls of hair. I finally got to see my hairdresser yesterday and she was alarmed by the amount of hair I have lost. I must see a medical practitioner immediately. My hair is now so thin that she had to cut my once long, flowing, golden locks into a limp bob.
This is no more.
It could be the steroids, it could be the blood thinners, it could be any or all of the hormones or the chronic period of stress. It could also be immunological. Whatever it is, I am very scared. So, after two and a half years of pain and grief I could never, ever have imagined, it was vanity that finally killed the cat.
Please, no sympathy.
