What Does It Mean To Be Well? My Recent Story
Being well means something different for each of us, for our family, and for our society and at different times.
I lost my hair to alopecia a few years ago. I used to have long, thick, silky, brown hair, with a few greying streaks. I was devastated when it all fell out, but there was little I could do.
I chose not to wear a wig. I hate having things on my head. For me, it also felt false, a fake version of myself. And yet, I hated being seen without hair.
Thinking back over the last four years, I see now that I withdrew inward and stopped going out.
