Waves of Pink II: Common Ground, Uncommon Courage
By week three, sure enough, my hair started to slowly fall out. Every time I would run my fingers through it, I would come away with a handful of hair. I took a shower one day, and the amount of hair that fell out was astonishing. It literally happened overnight. I was in shock, but I knew it was going to happen, so I told myself to pull it together, it will grow back. As the days went on, with every shower, more and more hair fell out . . . in handfuls. By the third day of “hairmageddon,” I asked my boyfriend to just shave the remaining hair off. I video messaged my mom and sister, and we had a good laugh-and-cry session as we said goodbye to my hair.
