A chronic illness changes your life in all aspects. When my journey began 2 years ago, I had long thick hair. My hair was my best feature. Due to stress, the lupus, and medication I started losing it. Whenever I would shower, I had handfuls of clumps come out. One day, I knew I had to cut my hair. I was devastated. I know that may sound silly to be so distraught about hair, but at that time my hair was everything. I had lost my job, a lot of my friends, my dream college program, and now my hair. It was symbolically the last thing I had, that my illness could take from me.
After I cut it, I learned a lot about myself. I learned no matter what happens in life I will always overcome it. Things happen for a reason. I am stronger because of the trials I have gone through.
My dream job will come to me when the time is right. I may have lost friends, but I have gained family. After I had to cut my hair, I had been approached by uniwigs to try out their wigs, it was fate! After looking through all of their unique products it was hard to choose from, because there’s too many amazing ones, but I got the Carrie wig in the macadamia color. It is absolutely amazing!!! It is synthetic, but looks so real! It makes me feel like I have my long hair back! I do like my short hair, but some days I just really miss having long hair, and the wig truly fills that void! It’s comfortable and light!
After all I have gone through with chronic illnesses it’s nice to finally feel beautiful and confident again.
