Do you feel that you need to accept this whole hair loss issue? I don't. I will never accept it. If acceptance is defined by wanting to go out without my hair - then I definitely know I will never…Continue

I can never go out without a wig. I don't have that confidence.

I have so many strong women who upload pictures without wearing a wig but I can never be that. Even looking at the mirror breaks me.

Hi, everybody! I just found this group. I have had alopecia for 43 years, and have worn a wig the whole time. I've never gone without a wig, and I can't see myself without hair on. It's simply not how I see myself.

Women should not be bald.  It just isn't acceptable in society.  Even a bad wig would look better.  Sorry, just my opinion.  My head has dents in it.  Bald would never be pretty even remotely.

I don't really think I will ever except my hair loss but I am just now excepting wearing a wig. For me losing my hair was like losing a limb. I know its sounds awful but when it first started coming out I swore up and down that I would kill myself it I ever had to wear a wig. It was my darkest hour but here I am 4 years later happily married and living my life again and I do believe that my wigs have given me the confidence I needed to climb out of my dark place. I am pretty sure my husband will never ever see me without hair and its not because I think he would freak out its because I would freak out. My method of copeing is making my wig part of me, treating it like its my real hair and almost convinceing myself that it is. Sounds strange but it works for me.

Hi Everyone, decided about 2 hours ago I need to go into wearing wigs now. Had appointment with my derm 2 days ago. He gave me a steroid lotion. Used it last night but I don't hope out much hope, even if it stops any more hair going I already can't style my hair nicely. I have bought wigs, headbands, bandanas this past few months and looked in mirror this morning and have had enough of every day being a bad hair day. Have now put a headband on at home so I don't have to see my hairline when I walk past a mirror, I look more like the old me again. Will wear my wig to work and a head band at gym. I don't like the way I look with this condition and I think my wigs look pretty so what the heck. Love to you all.

Hi Cindie. I know exactly how you feel. Society can be so cruel at times. You continue doing what makes you feel good and makes you happy. I choose not to go bald because 1) I have a peanut shaped head, 2) I love hair, & 3) bald is not an hair do for me.

Comment by Cindie on July 20, 2012 at 11:25pm

I look good, bald, or so I have been told (by one person). I have the perfect head shape, yet I KNOW I will not go out in public bald....I just can't handle the judgements or comments.
