Michael - sweating with no eyebrows is the WORST!!!! the first time i went for a run after losing mine was awful! i had to keep wiping my eyes and couldn't see a damn thing! Not to mention the stinging! yes. I feel ya, brother. I feel ya
Just figured what it is like to sweat and not have eyebrows. Absolutely not fun at all! These days my eyes keep watering from the wind, or sting from sweat running into my eyes..... Nastiest thing I experienced so far from this disease.
One sign that you know more than your doctor is when he reads up on web pages at your visit....
I went by him yesterday to see if another blood test could be an idea and that's what happened.
The only treatments i have been confronted with so far, are actually lowering the immune system. Honestly I think I have enough diseases for now and need not lower my immune system to welcome even more.
Yes it looks different, but it's only hair. I have come to terms with it by now even if i feel i look strange when taking off my glasses. The picture is already outdated as I now have only 5 or 6 hairs left in my left eyebrow.
The feeling of having baby skin is more apparent to me than the reflection of my mirror.
Wish you all a great weekend. Spring is comming here in DK so best get some sun on the scalp while it doesn't burn ;-)
Having alopecia is a rollercoaster of mixed emotions for everyone. Especially so as you transition through stages of your new appearance.
I have had AU for about 6 month now, and dont know anyone with the same disease. So I have nothing to compare with, but suspected early on that it was Alopecia. December 20th I was diagnosed AU and have accepted it for what it is.
I do, however, find myself doubting but maybe that is due to a new found attention to any hairs at all.
Fact is that I am now bald, and have lost my eyelashes and eyebrows well on the way to disappear.
Does anyone else have these mixed emotions?
Let's make bald great again! :)
im 42 and had AU for two years now its really affected my self confiedence i feel fake with my wig false eyebrow and eyelashes want to talk to people who really understand how i feel
