I have Wegener's Granulomatosis - just by way of review. (Whoops... there went my close friends clicking over to "photography." Or to another blog. I understand. It gets old.)
But, I'm not here to whine or complain. In fact, it's time for a mini celebration!
My doctor was unhappy with my last blood draw (inflammation markers up) and changed my meds, taking me off of methotrexate and starting Imuran. Sigh. I took this three years ago and it caused mouth sores and thinned out my hair.
So, being thus forewarned, I mentally flirted with cutting off my hair.
The flirtation turned to dating on and off, checking out websites, staring at cute haircuts ahead of me in line.
The dating morphed into engagement. "Hello, Joel? Cut-n-Color, STAT."
(Joel Burrow of Lavish Hair Salon - if you're in Seattle, I highly recommend.)
Then the walk down the aisle - snip, snip, and off it came!
But even more exciting is that my hair is thick and healthy, and I'm almost done with my second bottle of Imuran. Happy Dance!
Before and after below.
Vast improvement, right?
