I really shouldn't read things that stress me the hell out and make me angry. But such is life.

Today was the day for the big chop. I've been struggling with my hair nightmare for a year now in all of it's stunted glory. It was just time for it to go. So I've got the short natural now and a few doctor's recommendations so hopefully its condition will improve. It is hard realizing that all of your conceptions about yourself are wrapped up in something so malleable as hair.

Yes, though I try to deny it, in my heart of hearts I buy into the long-and-flowing-hair myth. Whether it be kinks or curls or locs I just want it, and have for years. So now I'm starting over with a length I haven't had since I was a baby. I said this past year hurt like being born and so it goes on. Hopefully there is a warm and comforting future waiting in the wings. I look forward to my heart's dream: a rain streaked window and a nice cup of tea.
