I am so with you. No one has seen me bald except in the wig place and even that I hated and cried afterwards.
It's so silly and I often wake up in a panic in the night that my hat has fallen off and my boyfriend has seen my head:(
I don't often access support but nice to know others feel the same as me and I am not nuts!! xxx
I am the same way...very, very reluctant...except to the sweet, gay male friend who shaves my head and doesn't judge.
I want to have that confidence, but I know how "beaten down" I've gotten just because I wear a wig in public....so I don't think I could take it without snapping!
I feel the same way I feel I NEED to wear my hair. Even in the privacy of my own home. I just don't like seeing my bald head ever. The only time I don't have something on my head is in the shower!
No, I don't think you need to want to go out without hair to accept having alopecia. These things are not mutually excusive. I created this group and I accept being bald and also accept that I will never want to go out in public that way. Which is why I wear a bonded-on hair system 24/7 not to deny that I have this condition but just to accept the way I feel about it and deal the best I can. I hope that helps : )
I cried when my derm asked me to take off my wig,I just felt uncomfortable! I just dont think i can go anywhere without my wig.That's just how i feel.Maybe one day??
