According to WP I now have 10 followers. Oh the pressure to come up with something interesting. Let’s see…
I am becoming very challenged in the hair department. How does that happen? 10 years of meds that cause hair loss, a genetic predisposition to thinning hair, and the inability some days to get my arms up high enough to fix the back of my hair. I’ve been putting off a hair cut. I’m getting pretty good at a female “comb over” to hide the scalp showing through on top, but it is getting unmanageable. So it is time for a trim.. maybe.
This week I have RA bloodwork (scheduled every 2 months) before going to my 6 month checkup with the doctor in early Sept. I’m happy to report my disease is pretty much under control as long as I behave myself and don’t over do. My bloodwork has been normal ever since I stopped taking Arava a year ago. That is a very bad drug for me. We have tried twice with it and both times my liver tests went high. It is OK. I am doing ok on Immuran and Humira.
I’m thinking I will take the trip out of town for my blood tests and combine it with a hair cut. I’ve always had great hair. When nothing else on me was pulled together, my hair always was. I’m in a little crisis here over my hair.
What have I tried? The OTC hair regrowth spray was first. Then I bought a Kerenique system of shampoo, conditioner, and regrowth spray. I did this along with hair/nail vitamins. It worked for a while then started falling out again. I get up from the couch and it looks like a Persian cat was shedding there all day. My hairdresser works for a dermatologist and told me they sell the Hair Max there for hair loss. I bought one, tried it for 9 weeks, and when no regrowth was sprouting at that point, I sent it back. I’m back to square one. Any ideas?
