Hair worries...

If you know me then you know I have a rather fond attachment to my hair. I'm a very insecure person who really doesn't particularly like that much about her body; I constantly feel the need to lose weight, to wear make-up (when around people) and finding someway to hide my scars. My hair plays a pivotal role in hiding my scars as a lot are located on my chest and just having my hair down does the job easily. My hair though is something that I actually like, I look after it more than anything else and it is the one thing I actually like about myself. 

I think is starting to thin or fall out or you know generally is doing something. Pre transplant my hair was a massive worry for me, I know so many people who have hair problems post transplant with thinning, losing a lot of hair and generally finding it hard to keep their hair in the same condition it was pre transplant. I'm very lucky in that I have very, very thick hair but recently a lot more hair has started coming out. I've never really experienced hair loss in any way, I've never been one of those people that has found a tonne of hair comes out in the shower or when brushing it through. Lately though I can just be randomly twiddling with my hair and find 10 hairs will come out, in the shower I couldn't even count how much comes out and then brushing as well it's hard to really say. 

Now it's not something I'm going to worry about too much just yet because as I said I do have very thick hair and it will be a while and a lot of hair loss for any-one besides me to notice but it is something I'm starting to worry about a little bit. There were a few things pre-transplant that I was really quite worried about; my face being one and my hair being another. Now I know there's normal hair loss and we all lose some hair but this very much feels abnormal to me and my usual amount of hair loss so it's weighing on my mind a bit. I just hope it never gets to a point where other people will notice it. I have Papworth on Thursday so I'm going to ask them what they think or if there's anything they can do about it, but unfortunately I have the feeling that they'll say what a lot of people do "You have enough hair to lose, don't worry" and whilst, yes, this is very much the case I don't actually want to lose any of my hair. I like my hair the way it is and would rather it wasn't thinner and as we've previously established my hair is one of the few things I like about myself and would like to keep it that way :-/ 

As always, thank-you for reading and chat soon.
