OOTD: A new dress and alopecia.
March 2, 2011
♥ Dress: Primark *** Shoes: Dunnes *** Accessories: Primark *** Legging shorts(underneath): Forever 21 ♥
This dress looks ridiculously short, and it kind of is, but I don't think it looks quite as bad in person. It has been sitting in my closet since December and i'm trying to wear my clothes that still have tags on, rather than leaving them sitting around! The ruffles and cute bow on this dress are what sucked me in, because the fit is off. I can't blame the dress though - I don't like to wear dresses that are fitted in the waist because my waist and midsection is awkward. I usually have to pull the dresses up much higher than they should be. Its a cute dress, even though my habit of buying things because they are cute (rather than because they fit good) is bad!
This week has been so hectic. I have turned into one of those bloggers who don't reply to their readers, i'm afraid! Its not on purpose, once I get settled into my new house I will have more free time to start coming online again. I haven't even began to pack my things yet! I painted my room twice earlier this week but I need to give it a third coat tomorrow. Yesterday I went to pick out my flooring, it only took trips to about 10 different stores but I found the perfect one eventually. We are *supposed* to be moving in on Sunday although i'm predicting it will be a few days later.
I went to see my doctor again yesterday about my hair. Before I talk about that - I don't like to get too personal on my blog (if you guys hadn't noticed!) I'm fine with sharing little bits about myself but I don't think the internet needs to know my every move or that I went out and partied and got so drunk I passed out in my friends house. It doesn't really have a place in my blog so I just don't write about it. I don't mind talking about this hair problem though because I have quite a lot of readers and i'm sure at least one person who stumbles upon my blog is going through something similar.
I mentioned my hair problem to my old doctor and she said straight away "its your diet and nutrition" - no tests, nothing. That was a couple of months ago and my hair isn't getting any better so I switched to a new doctor and boy am I glad that I did! Well, the news about my hair isn't too good but its lovely to have a doctor who doesn't blame everything on being overweight (infact we had a giggle when he weighed me and said "thats fine!" afterwards, I had to mention how impressive it was for a doctor to say that!)
So, my hair problem..its genetic, I have alopecia. He said we can probably reverse it short term, but we can't make it go away forever. He did lots of blood tests and I have to go back for the results in a month when I finish some of the medication he gave me. I was also prescribed Cerazette which is a form of birth control which will stop my "lady time" every month (huzzah! See, there's a positive side to everything!) The reason being that I may be losing too much iron. Hopefully there won't be any serious side effects with it.
I know the last time I mentioned my hair problems a lot of you ladies left sweet comments about how my hair looks fine, but I don't include closeups of my hair accessories on my head for a reason! Its very thin. Anyways, I will be sure to write about my progress with my hair and finding what works for me because it may help someone else. If anyone is going through something similar and would like to talk, my email address is in the sidebar!
