And yet, my hair is super healthy…

Here I am spending the last few weeks feeling like I’m dying, like I need to make preparations, etc, and tonight the hair stylist keeps talking about how great my hair is, how thick it is, how textured and moisturized (and whatever words she used—)

“Whatever vitamins you’re taking, keep taking them, you’re hair is incredibly healthy-“”

Without understanding the magnitude of the irony of this moment,

I just looked at her and smiled,

“My hair is healthy?”

“Oh yes, it’s extremely healthy. Healthier than most people, you’re so lucky—“

Let’s take a moment to digest this: my hair—-and who gives a f*** about that—is healthier than normal.

So why is it that everything else in my body is so f***ed up? What mechanism that connects my body’s ability to recognize pathogens that’s working so slowly (and ineptly), but the mechanisms that influence my hair growth and ‘healthiness’ are working so well?

Having beautiful hair ain’t gonna help me from the coffin…at least I’ll look pretty when I’m begging God for a ticket to the party, cuz He knows, better than anyone I got a little explaining to do 😜👍.

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
