Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

If you follow my blogs and/or my Twitter account, you will by now know that in just 18 days time, (Yes! 18 DAYS!!!!) I shall become Mrs. H!

Wedding stress, family stress and illnesses along with the usual daily life crap have left me truly exhausted.
Add to that horrendous BPD cycles and what do you get? A bald patch. Yes, you read correctly.. A sodding BALD patch!!!

Just what every 28 year old Bride-to-be needs, a mere 5 weeks before her wedding is to develop a case of stress related alopecia*!!!

*AKA Alopecia Areata

Luckily, I guess, I had (please notice that I use past tense there) thick hair and the loss is located on the underside of my mane thus invisible unless you go looking for it. However, my hair has thinned out dramatically to what it used to be and although there is some small regrowth on the patch now, I am told that it is colourless!!!

So now I have less than 3 weeks until the big day and I am getting more stressed by the second.. Which as I'm sure you can imagine, doesn't bode well, given my current predicament! (There's still time for me to by a wig yet, though, right?!)

And for all you non believers out there, and my 'friends' on Twitter who think that my Tweet..
"I'm turning into Gail Porter's fatter, uglier twin.."
was a joke.. I shall now provide you with cringe worthy photographic evidence.

Oh, and please, please don't tell me to "Stop Stressing" it's not something that I can control, I honestly wish I could...
