Being bald is much easier! 

In my last blog post, I talked about my experience with hair loss and shaving my head. The first time you go out in public can be a stressful one and make you feel quite self conscious. If you run into an acquaintance or distant friend who doesn’t necessarily know what life changes you have experienced, it can be uncomfortable. Unfortunately there is no solution or quick fix for this. Any patient undergoing chemotherapy will go through this experience. After that first day, though, it’s as if your hair never fell off!

If you spend any amount of time at the gym, or if you run, like me, being bald can be quite beneficial.  You don’t have “hat head” when your remove your cap after a run, and the shower routine is more than cut in half……one minute in, towel dry, dress, and you’re done! You are the envy of all your running partners or classmates. If you keep working through treatment, like I did, you are never late for work!

On warm days, you have the option of removing your wig and being much cooler, and if you get caught in the rain with no umbrella…….who cares?

While on the running circuit, you fit right in. Most runners run with a bandana, hat or cap anyways, so there’s no difference. There was not one time that I felt self conscious while running or doing a workout in the gym.

So, you see, there really is no excuse! And besides…exercise actually gives you more energy…….as do the meds you take prior to chemo treatment. Those of you who have been through this know exactly what I mean!
