Pancreas CancerClaudia..Hair Day! was posted 09/30/2003 05:09 pm by Capt TNFerade
Got a couple of minute before we head out with Daughters Lynn and Jane and
their families to a Japanese Steakhouse...a bit of drama mixed with food.
But I did remember you asked if I could describe the change in texture of my
hair that seemed to precede my diagnosis. Well all my life my hair after
shampooing feels light..fine...blow away...the kind of hair that is going to
do what it wants too...complete with 'cowlicks' and all. About six months
before diagnosis or even feeling poorly my hair changed in texture...rather
than fine it felt coarse...almost like it had a thin coating. The thin
coating was dry...not oily at all...the strands of my hair just felt
thicker...When Darlin' Delora suggested it might be changing or shifting
hormones levels..well, I of course ignored that...after all I don't intend to
have one of those life change things or mid-life crisis until at least 70!!!!
Anyway the upshot is, I think this depression that accompanies PC may have
its genesis in the endocrine system rather than the central nervous
system...but that really turns out to be a which came first, 'the chicken or
the egg', question.
On another note, Delora's mom and dad will celebrate their 72nd wedding
anniversary on November 11. Hey buddy...after that long you have earned your
stripes...AND separate bedrooms.
Updates later...right now..everything is cool...still workin' on 'Buyin'
Time' but everytime I start...I just crack up thinking of viv and her rap
Love all you guys :) and hugs
