A Bald Statement

Today, I looked up 'bald' in the thesaurus to try to find a 'nicer' word to describe this rather unpleasant situation for my website.

I couldn't find any BUT I did find this:

a bald statement: plain, simple, unadorned, unvarnished, unembellished, undisguised, unveiled, stark, severe, austere, brutal, harsh; blunt, direct, forthright, plain-spoken, straight, straightforward, candid, honest, truthful, realistic, frank, outspoken; informal, upfront.

Interestingly, this is exactly how I felt (when I had the energy for feelings) when I was bald and going through chemo.

What do you think? Do/Did you feel the same way?

Do you have any preferences for a word other than 'bald'?
