Question Crazy thinking?

I was just wondering if anyone else has thoughts like this when they are first diagnosed:

I have always had long blonde hair. But lately when I look in the mirror, I get depressed because I see a shell of the person I used to be. I feel like someone completely different now.
I've been playing around with the thought of cutting my hair shorter and dying it brown.

Am I just trying to escape my disappointment? Am I giving up on ever being my former self? Or am I just wanting to start fresh because I will never be that same person?

I can't decide if I am being positive or negative.
Any thoughts?

Re: Crazy thinking?

you are doing what every woman who is smart does, change things around so you feel better. besides all that long hair just give ya a headache. you want extreme? i shave my head bald and have for 14 years now.
it's not going to change anything but how you feel so do it! it's hair. it grows back. rebel a little. adapt with an open mind to change.
as for the person you are now. empty my aunt fannies behind! you are not a shell of who you were. life is just changing and you have to catch up with it all. create a new you, sounds like it's time. i love my naked head. i gave up hair, makeup, nails, all the girley stuff and funny thing now i get more compliments than i ever did with all that fake me going on. giggle. who knew under all my personal what i look like hangups there was a pretty lady? not me. giggle.
i say dye it purple and green and blue and any color that makes you smile.

Re: Crazy thinking?

I cut my hair off to a short pixie cut and dyed it red.
