my last few patches of head hair i removed as looked ridiculous (and i dont now???)
woke this morning with sore eyes, rubbed them as you do and thought, id got couple eyelashes in then, washed face looked in mirror to find my eyebrows have gone!!!
i really dont look like me any more!!
had to drop dads bday presents round, stopped at petrol station first,had scarf on my head but still self conscious, by the time i got back in car i wanted to scream!!!
never had so many people been soooo nice but sympatheticly nice to me in such short space of time!!
now i go there alot as its a tesco garage and easier to get milk etc ratherv than go supermarket and normally hobling round with my stick i get scowled at shoved out way, you get picture!!
now all whats changed is my hair loss so why the f are people treating me so different? i tell you why because (i hate to admit this) i LOOK ILL
im no worse than yesterday,prob/hope no worse than tomorow, PEOPLE TREAT YOU DIFFERENTLY WHEN THEY SEE YOUR ILLNESS!!!
we all know this and its sooo wrong!!! if i went back in tomorow with full head hair (and eyebrows lol) i guarantee i would blend back into backround, scowled at and bumped into!!!!
NO WONDER FIBRO SUFFERERS (me included) DONT GET THE RESPECT AND UNDERSTANDING WE SHOULD!!!!!!
people need EDUCATING about hidden illnesses!!!
