My partner shaved my head again today. She made the observation that I always seem so sad when she does it. I have sores on my scalp and it hurts. I try not to cry, but invariably the wet mixes with the falling teeny hairs and clumps on my cheek. I have a receding hairline now. I shaved my pits today – the first time in a month and it looked like it had been 2 days. When we went to Costco the other day, I bought shaving cream and when she asked what in the world for, I said, “wishful thinking.” I promise to never complain about shaving ever again. I miss my hair.
