25. Hair

New baby hairs are constantly popping up on the scalp.  The hair is new, different, maybe grayer or more auburn. It’s growing in.  It’s always been growing in.

Chemo makes hair change.  The types I am on are not supposed to leave me bald, although it isn’t a big deal if it does.  As much hair that I have, I am not attached.  

I notice focus though.  I see the amount of hair I pull out of my brush.  I spin the hairs on the shower into a ball and toss them in the garbage.  A lot of hair.  It’s falling out.  It’s always been falling out.
