I finally got the courage to tell my best friend about my FFA and that I might end up losing all my hair. I was absolutely devastated..she started laughing uncontrollably about the possibility of me being bald. I feel so betrayed. I didn't tell her how that made me feel and I don't want to lose her friendship but I don't have any idea of how to handle this. Advice and hugs would be appreciated.

Here is a great big hug for you!  Sometimes friends and family don't know what to say to us.  They sometimes laugh out of nervousness.  They also can't imagine what they would do if this happened to them.

Don't worry too much.  When you have calmed down.  Please talk with your friend again and see how she really feels.

She may apologize.  If she has been a good friend so far, you should still be her friend.  Time will tell (in the short time) how supportive she is.  Give her a little bit of time, but keep communicating.  

That is good advice...I have avoided talking to her about it but am gradually getting up my courage.
