Going bald part three

Mrs Lifecruiser with long hair

Those sweet memories! I am so dreaming about having a lot of hair as on this picture of me when I was young…. I’ve always had a lot of hair, until recently as you know.

Doc called me today to tell me that I have anemia and lack of iron. They don’t know what’s caused it. It can be the infection I had in Paraguay with the loose of weight I had, but it also can be internal bleeding in the digestive tract. That’s why I also have to going through a further investigation where they goes down in my stomach and upper part of the colon to take samples. (Gastroskopi in Swedish).

They have to put me to sleep to do that, because there is NO WAY I’m doing that awake! So I guess I have to wait in the line for a while to get that investigation done.

I’ve now started a treatment with iron pills, we’ll see how it goes, since it’s easy to react on the pills. I also have to leave a sample of…sorry I have to say it - don’t picture it *lol*… feces, so they can look after blood in it. So now you know what I’m doing for the moment *laughing*. So now I’m not only have poked around in my dogs poo but my own too…

I’ve also looked up all food that contains the most amount of iron and C-vitamines, so now I will eat a lot of all that stuff. This hungry monster don’t have any problems with that :-) Did you know that you have to eat 2 liter of parsley to get the same amount of iron as in ONE beef? So it will be a lot of beefs here from now on!

I guess the hair loss will continue for a while and it will take some time (6-12 months) to get the hair back, so I’m still not quite myself on that part.

No one has come up with any cool nickname for me, not one suggestion, shame on you folks ;-)

What about:

1. Baldie Hawn
2. Bald Pitt
3. Moonraker
4. Iron woman
5. ………….

Hey everybody, keep the suggestions coming!!!

Cruise list: Sharlet, Kasia, TN Chick, Miss Ass.Lifecruiser, Skye, and Sisiggy.

    Here’s hoping it’s just a dietary thing. Lots of spinach! Liver and onions…I’d rather lose my hair. But I could live with lots of spinach.
    But you’re very “in” because we just saw a movie where the girl from Star Wars was bald! Tell everyone it’s a deliberate fashion decision.

    Don’t mention the word Liver to me…!

    Hm.. Good idea Sisiggy. I might even tell them it’s to sympathize with Mr Lifecruiser ;-)

    Well, at least you’re closer to a definite diagnosis. I hope all it is is the iron, since that’s easily treated.

    I’m not that imaginative, but I’ll put on my thinking cap, and if I come up with a name, I’ll let you know :razz:

    p.s., after seeing your younger picture, I can understand even more why you’re upset about the hair loss. Beautiful hair!

    *shocked* Was that really you?! You were such a beauty when you were younger!!! Haha! Don’t get me wrong, you are still beautiful now! ;D

    But yes, that picture really says a lot. It must be hard losing that hair. But don’t worry, you are still loved by everyone around you regardless of what you look like or ever looked like before. And I *refuse* to come up with a nickname! :P

    Yes Sharlet that was me, how hard it may be to understand ;-) As hard as it is for me to lose that hair. But I’m getting used to it now. And hoping I will get some of it back eventually!

    There seems that Baldie Hawn is the most popular, but people really are too polite, they won’t give me any nicname even if I’m begging for it :-)
