About Me:
I have had Alopecia for about 16 years now. I still have nightmares of losing my hair and I wake up to find that I am bald. It has been difficult to have this issue and have been made fun of by people. Men can be so rude asking personal questions. I have had eight children and many foster children. I am an artist and have painted myself bald. I also have a Masters in Fine Art as well as as Masters in Clinical Mental Heath and working on my Phd in Psychology. I have not been able to afford nice wigs because I do not have any insurance and have been seeking work. I have a few wigs I have picked up on clearance. But I am not living in the desert and the heat gets to me. My husband has been sick with a brain tumor and has had three operations. This year 2012 he did radiation. He is my rock. My mantra is I am a beautiful woman and I know how to take care of myself.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Dead wig left on the seat of my car

Posted on July 3, 2012 at 9:30am 12 Comments

I left my poor wig on the seat of my car. Never do that . The back of the wig it a friz mess. Looks like it melted. I tried to revive the poor wig and put everything you can think of to bring it back from the dead.I live in Southern Utah area near Zion Park so inside the car can become like an oven.

I have not paid more than $45 for a wig and often try and buy them clearance. So I find I have several different colors. The problem is my husband can never find me in the store! Ha!…
