Perhaps I just have my Alopecia radar on these days, but I swear there are more and more people popping up everywhere with Alopecia lately! For the longest time growing up I never knew anyone else that shared the same condition as me. I felt lonely and wished I had someone to relate to.

What I'd like to know is - when you see a stranger with obvious Alopecia (not just thinning hair, but someone who has tell tale smooth patches, or completely void of hair like me) on the street, in a store etc.

Do you ever speak to them?
Do you strike up a conversation with them?
Why do you or why would you not?

Well it happened again....
I was at the gym in the locker room and right there a guy with AU right in front of me. We exchanged greetings but he didnt seem to want to engage in a disscussion. Maybe next time....
