Hair loss question

I am in week 20-something of my treatment. Nearly halfway through. (Yay me!!)

In the last week or so my hair has started thinning noticeably and falling out in clumps. My hair has always been fine and thin, but now when you look at me you don't see hair around my head, you see scalp. At least that's what I see when I look in the mirror. I'm not quite sure what to do now.

My hair has always been shoulder-length. .

Here is my question: Would it do any good for me to chop off my hair to a shorter length? Will the decrease in weight help stop it from falling out? Should I go ahead and buzz it? Should I just leave it alone?

I'm at a loss. A complete and total loss. I knew this was a possibility but I have been in denial. Now that it's really here, what do I do?

I guess that was more than one question, huh?

Thanks for your help!!
