Someone call the SCISSOR police....

If anyone happens to be passing through the Upper Ohio Valley, you are more than welcome to come here and rob me of all the scissors in the house. Trust me - they are everywhere. Once upon a time, I had very long hair, but as I aged (egads!) I have gone shorter...and shorter...and now - one little hair sticking out - gets whacked immediately.

I have this propensity for just grabbing the scissors - at least every two weeks - and hacking off another section of hair I feel has grown much faster than the rest of my hairs (and there are not that many of those either). If I had my druthers, I would just let it all grow out and start over - but at this rate - I can't see that happening. Argh...

Hair issues drive me up a wall - as I had a total hysterectomy when I was 34 years old, due to cervical cancer. (My late husband, always blamed that surgery on the demise of our marriage. My lack of a sex drive - uh huh...couldn't have been his incessant drinking and drunken tirades!!!) But once we lose all those important hormones...our bodies plain old go to hell. Primarily - the thinning of the hair. I come from a family of thick haired people - and this is ridiculous. Not much longer and I will be the Donald Trump look alike!! Don't recommend HRT, as I started that right after the surgery and wham...my first heart attack. The hair gods have it in for me I just know it.

I have researched herbs and vitamins and such...but all have certain drawbacks - like growing a third eye, so I have abandoned that plan. Maybe as soon as they come out with the "lose weight while you sleep" pill - someone will invent something for the balding women of America!! I can only hope. Till then - or the time someone steals my scissors...I will still be chopping away!

Here endeth my Sunday homily!!! Later........

I too cut my own hair and have scissors everywhere. Luckily for me, no heart attack when I started hormone replacement therapy. No more hot flashes, and a full head of hair, on my head that is. I have a different female patterned baldness problem. I have lost almost all the hair on my, well, my, well, you know. What's left is grey and wispy. But now that I plan to remain celibate for the rest of my life, who cares?

Oh my! I tried to trim Sissy's bangs last night and let's just say I should leave it to professionals! I hope they grow quickly!

You mean there is no hope even for the well endowed head of hair?

I have cut my hair for years.. I too had a hysterectomy young but have never had the hair loss problem. I took HRT for a long time, till breast cancer reared it's ugly head, that took care of that...lol

But I still have a full, thick head of hair. Wish I could share with you, I certainly would...lol

Shave your head and keep it polished.

I am not kidding.

I like shiny bald heads.
