Olive buying shoes:
I take size 3 but a 9 feels oh so nice. LOL.
I have something in common with Popeye - Baldness! Yesterday, I did what I've wanted to do for at least a decade - covid, covid cuts, social isolation, psoriasis - led me to- just DO IT! Shaved my head. Shaved. To the scalp. Norm looked a little shocked, shook his head and kept on working. It feels - as I imagined- FANTASTIC! As the day went on and a few head rubs later - Norm likes it too, I think. lol Not that I care, if Norm likes it or not- it's not about Norm...
I have psoriasis on my scalp -it drives me crazy- itchy, flakes& even bleeds at times, how can it ever be addressed properly with a full head of hair. I shaved it, massaged some medicated oil and sat in the sun- heavenly. I woke up today- caught my reflection in the mirror and started to laugh out loud! Strolled my driveway singing 'Amazing Grace' - hahaha
Fuck the stigma! Why do we associate shaved heads with illness (especially women) - it feels terrific. As it grows out I just might keep it this short! I'll see- just some added adventure- JUST hair. Curious already how it will feel in the winter - hat is ready.
It was a decision made in a calm state... It was time.
As I was shaving I associated it with taking off an old layer - no longer needed, like my gecko... a clean start- physically & mentally. I feel beautiful! Minus hair- who knew?
Me. How refreshing. I'm excited for this day! I slept great too!
The fireplace will be lit & I'm starting a new canvas & continuing my classic cartoons.
