I am new to this support site, but not new to Alopecia Areata. I have had Alopecia for 7 years, but this is the first time that I may actually need a wig. I am so stressed every morning pulling out handfuls of hair. I am no hesitant to make that step. I just don't want everytone looking at me noticing I have a wig on. I am taking Methotrexate - anyone tried this treatment?

Hello !!  We have been on some of the same topics a while back.  Have you gotten some human hair wigs?  And from where?  Which one or ones are the best?  How long did/do they last?  I need to get something very soon, and still having so many questions.  Thanks so much.
