Sorry no pics today.
I have been keeping a secret about my hair.
After moving here my doctor said my thyroid
was running high.
He and I have been having a decade debate as
to what level my thyroid should be.
He wants to keep it at laboratory levels.
I personally feel my best when it is at the high
side of normal and one tick above normal.
So, as per usual...
we debated my thyroid levels in August.
I reluctantly agreed to a tiny drop in my
dosage of thyroid medication,
even though in my heart and soul,
I knew I felt great despite the numbers.
With the drop of medication,
my hair started falling out in hand fulls!
I, literally, clogged the tub when I took a shower.
(Much to hubby's frustration!)
After a month and a half of this,
hubby convinced me to increase my dose
(against medical advice)
to see what would happen.
At this point I had lost an
inch to inch and a half of hair just around my face.
The rest of my head is considerably thinner too.
My hair did stop falling out : )
I went to see the doctor who was not pleased with me.
He said many things can cause hair loss.
I told him that I knew how my body reacted.
I am very sensitive to changes in my body
and very sensitive to medication.
I have been dealing with this for over 20 years!
For some reason since my thyroid was destroyed,
my levels just won't level off.
He sent me for labs...again...
guess what they came back normal for a change!
That doesn't happen very often.
Long story short,
I know my body.
I was right.
my hair started growing back around my face.
Many, many tiny little grey hairs.
So what if they're grey...
I will probably be sporting bangs
when these hairs get unruly.
It will grow out!
At least it is hair!
It's really hard to hide
hair loss sometimes.
Mine could be worse
but I'm a girl.
I want my hair!
Now back to the holiday season!
I got my gift of hair!
