I initially lost my hair in summer and I went bald constantly at home. Later, I expanded out to doing things in the yard within view of my neighbors (who were aware of my situation and very supportive.)
Twice I went bald in public and I was quite surprised to find everyone conspicuously staring at me and doing double-takes! It was really weird. I was not prepared for this reaction from others. I wonder if they were trying to decide if I was a cancer patient or a radical feminist with edgy style?!?
Ironically, I rarely go without my wig now because I am very self-conscious about my missing eyebrows and eyelashes. I pull the wig down low in the front so the bangs help conceal my naked face.
