Update 9th Nov 2011

Not posted for a while....... Been resting lots as I've felt really run down and have got a sinus infection. 

Not been coping well with my hair loss, I look in the mirror and I don't see me looking back.
Some hair growth is coming back but not all, very patchy :-( 
The worst time for me is when I wake up, I don't remember what I've been through, go to put my hands through my hair like I'd used to, and I'm touching a bald head. :-(
I really don't know how I'm getting through this, but some how I am.

You don't realise how much strength you have until it happens to you or someone close to you.

I'm so lucky to have my Husband and children, All I've ever wanted in life is to have my own family, (a boy and a girl) and to be happily married :-) and I have that! :-) To see them smile is what keeps me going xxx
