I am losing my hair. The MTX injection is obviously more potent than the pills and the side effects are following suit. I've found ways to ignore the nausea by sucking on potato chips and staying too busy to get distracted by it. But there is no ignoring the hair falling out. Last week I asked my hairdresser to cut my hair short. My husband and kids don't like it and frankly neither do I, but what choice did I have? It was getting thin and stringy looking. At least now it looks like I have a full head of hair. I'm okay now but a couple of days ago I was having the ultimate pity party. Then I remembered cancer patients who don't just lose some of their hair, but all. There is always something to be grateful for.
