Well, imagine my surprise when I've finished blowing it out, and I notice that I have a very unicorn-esque horn of hair sprouting up in the back: (See it?! Right in the rear of my part)
In a few more weeks it will be exactly like that dude from the Little Rascals:
So I realize that this sprout of hair must all be new growth.
But it's a really thick patch . . .
so that must mean that there was a really big bald area . . . uh oh.
I called my mom to demand an explanation----had she seen it (it's too far back for me to see in the mirror)? Why didn't she tell me? Her response "Oh, I may have seen that one." Sigh. I grabbed the camera to give myself an aerial view, and confirmed that anyone taller than me must have been getting quite a view:
At least you can see the thick patch of new hair growing in. But, man, imagine how big that must have looked with no hair! Yikes!
I returned to the dermatologist, eager to show off all of the new hair growing in, but she wasn't as impressed as I was (no fireworks or releasing of doves or anything). She was somewhat concerned that I still have a a lot of hair falling out (join the club) so I was started on a course of prednisone in addition to the shots. (By the way, this time I tried to count the shots and got up to 56 before I gave up!) Hopefully these steriods will kill off the rogue white blood cells that are attacking my hair follicles.
