What to wear when being active

I love taking long walks, and I usually just plop on a baseball hat and go. I don't want to get my wig all sweaty. But yesterday the winds were so strong my hat blew off a couple of times. It was…Continue

When did you become okay with it?

So, I've had alopecia for 4 years and despite many treatments, it keeps getting worse. I feel like I might never be happy again. When did you start to accept your alopecia and what did you do to feel…Continue

Moments of clarity

Posted on January 9, 2011 at 9:18am 5 Comments

Yesterday, on my way to my monthly appointment to clean and reattach my integration system I had two humorous moments of clarity.



1.

I'm sitting in my car, and I pull off my headband-earmuff thing to go inside. My hair stands straight up. "Man, i knew this thing would give me hat hair," I say to myself. Then I burst out laughing. When my biggest problem is "hat hair," as apposed to "no hair," life is pretty good.

Im in the appointment and I'm waiting for… Continue

It gets better

So its been more than a year since my hair loss reached the turning point, the wig point. And at the time, I considered it sort of a death sentence for my future. I mentally kissed goodbye most of the things I wanted most in life, assuming that I couldn't get them in a wig.

As it turns out, I was totally wrong. Its a year later and I'm happier than Ive been in a long time. I'm working at a job I love. My legal troubles are over. And I have an integration system that gives me…

It's been almost two weeks since I got an integration system. I don't even know how to describe how I feel. Free sums it up pretty nicely, though.

I find myself forgetting that I even have alopecia, which is a pretty big deal for someone who has thought about nearly nothing else for the past five years. It looks like my own hair, it feels like a thicker, less-damaged version of my own hair, it's pretty much the hair I always wish I had. I just wore it on vacation and I was amazed at all… Continue

The perfect gift for an alopecian

Posted on June 20, 2010 at 9:27pm 6 Comments

Recently, I took up running. I'm just starting out, but it's one of the only things that helps releive my stress and make this whole alopecia thing seem more manageable. While running, I wear bandanas, but am totally bummed by the lack of selection at stores near me. They are all cheaply-made, obviously designed for men, or too dark (which when you add sun translates to too hot). Today my friend came over to give me a birthday gift- a totebag filled with dozens of cute, light-colored, girly… Continue
