Yeah, I have one vanity… my hair

I’m not vain about much but I have to admit to a certain vanity about my hair. The idea of going bald if I have to go through chemo if I have the cancer they are testing for fills me with terror. I will have the world’s ugliest bald head.

For one thing, my head is square, it has corners. I also have something called a lipoma that I have had since I was born. It covers about half my head and most of my hair grows out of it. It’s big enough that the one time I talked about having it removed since they can become cancerous, the doctor said it would have to be done under general anesthetic in a hospital and would be considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance, so it stayed.

So yeah, I’m terrorizing myself over vanity.

This is what it looked like when I was about 6 months old. It’s much bigger now and my mom kept me in bonnets to make the old ladies at church shut up about it until I had hair on my whole head when I was almost 2.

Struggle
Eight of Arrows

In the darkness of failure the burning torch of hope remains lit in the human soul and encourages struggle. Courage is needed to survive the storm.

A feeling of being alone, struggling in many aspects of one’s life. A need for support, to open one’s heart to the potential ‘hearthfire’ and for others to reach out and help.
