"RESILIENCE, COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE"
As part of NAAF's "You Are Not Alone: NAAF Education and Empowerment Webinar Series," our first of 12 webinars will kick off with “Resilience, Courage and Confidence” featuring Shamsha Damani and Sofia Martinez. Shamsha was diagnosed with alopecia universalis since 2013 and serves as a support group leader and Health and Research Ambassador (HARA) for NAAF. Sofia is an engineer and the founder of “Oh Hell Yeah I Am,” a Life Coaching company. She has dealt with alopecia since she was 6 years old. In this webinar, you will work through the notions of resilience, courage and confidence and identify practical tools to become resilient, practice courage and develop confidence so you can start to feel good in your own skin.

4:00 PM PDT / 6:00 PM CT / 7:00 PM EDT

NAAF gratefully acknowledges support for this webinar series from Eli Lilly.

Hi Everyone, I have come to a point that my hair is so thin I need the name of a hairdresser around the greater Seattle/Everett area who knows about our condition and can hopefully cut my hair so I can still wear it on occasion.  This pandemic coupled with a recent assault by a stranger and losing my hair....well it's just time to stop wearing it up and get it cut before a depression sets in.  The profile pic here was taken in I believe 2016?  I still had quite a lot of hair in 2017 but not now.  SO PLEASE PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN SUGGEST A HAIRDRESSER WHO IS FAMILIAR WITH ALOPECIA LET ME KNOW? Take good care of yourselves.  I am going to continue exercising and taking care of my general health.  Intellectually I know I am not my body or hair but they ARE mine to take the best care of I can. I wish you all some laughter, joy and gratitude during this time of challenges.  Be and stay well.  Thank you,  Bon

Dear Bon, 

I am sorry for typo with my first message to you and how may have missed some of mine/delay. I have messaged you my number and been seeing if there are any scheduled upcoming WA meets without luck yet. Please call or text me. As I am not always on this site and connecting directly may be clearer and quicker.

 

I get driving not far and traffic in the area can be awful. I take public transport and Lyft etc can be more stress-free. And nice thing Sounder runs out of Everett south and area is getting better with alternatives. I have found the train, etc. to be relaxing if have time to take it.

I will be caregiving next month on weekend in Snohmish and could meet for a bit. Right now have to say tentative; as I been having some health flares and feeling over stretched.

Lastly, I will try see about if others are able /want to meet.

Comment by Bon on February 17, 2020 at 9:04pm

I would attend for sure.  I live in Everett and don't like driving long distances but I have just been diagnosed with Lichen Planopaliris. I have tried repeatedly to get a response from someone but perhaps since I'm new to this site it's me.  I am moving into acceptance through prayer, meditation, support from friends and being open about it and not always hiding it. PLEASE, someone respond to this. I'd really appreciate it.  Bon
