hen Logan was a baby, I worried about what he was going to think of me, his mother, being a bald woman. I worried about how it could affect him. I worried about what would be the right thing to say to him when he inevitably asked me about it. I guess worrying comes with …
Imagine you are on a first date.
Everything is unfolding perfectly. The restaurant is romantic. The food is delicious. The champagne is exquisite. But most importantly, the conversation flows between the two of you effortlessly. It’s clear you both feel a strong connection.
But you have a secret. A secret that is deeply personal and makes you completely vulnerable!
But you have no choice. You will have to tell sooner or later. Because it’s about your body — and if the intimacy that has sparked over this candle lit dinner continues to grow, this wonderful new person will most definitely discover it anyway.
My video, “Layers“, shows the reality faced by somebody with a physical health condition and/or a body image concern every time they meet someone new. When is the right time to tell? On a first date? When do you show them what you really look like? And is it – should it be? — as big of a concern as it feels like?
This is just one example of the many inner struggles that are told in my upcoming book, “Memoirs of a Bald Bride.”
“Layers” ends with the question, “Who really wants to know what’s going on under these layers? Do you?” I hope you do because this memoir will help those who deal with all types of body image concerns find real love.
So please donate towards the “Memoirs of a Bald Bride” project. Even $1 will be greatly appreciated!
