Hi! I just found this site. My 11 year old daughter has alopecia totalis. She had a full head of hair until she was 11 months old. Then started losing her hair. She was completely bald by 12 months old and has been bald ever since. She will be 12 on Sept 12 of this year. I never forced her to wear a wig. In 2nd grade she wore a wig for about 3 weeks after that she took it off and never put it back on. Once in a while she wears a baseball cap but that is all. Being bald is all she has ever known so it is her "normal".

I joined this group to know people and make friends. I'm bald for choice and don't consider being bald like a problem.I care much more about what people have inside...

The entire world of body image or our reactions to physical trauma, to what we do to modify our bodies, our modes of self-presentation have deep resonances in the life of each one of us. All this fascinates me--there are good reasons that have to do with how I indentify with our people.

I was musing a few minutes ago about my encounters with patients on a burn ward, of women and men (adults and children) whom I have encountered. I have wondered why I am drawn to people who have survived many kinds of trauma. For a quarter century, I worked with people who are in recovery from addictions. I suffer from PTSD and depression.

I just muse on this at this moment because some links that I had not clearly made come slowly into focus. Folks be kind to each other. Love that pilgrim soul in each of you.

This is a terrific resource. Thank you for letting me come here from time to time.
