It’s not about the hair.

Ugh, I messed up the highlighting but I just wanted to say that that is my exact experience – not recognizing myself as how I think of “me” (in my mind’s eye) is the hardest part. It is very disconcerting to see what I consider a stranger looking back at me in the mirror (I mean, I still look like the me I have inside my own mind to a degree, but it is different enough these days to be jarring).
