I am an architecture student studying at the University of Oklahoma.I first noticed hair loss in late March.In early May I was diagnosed with AA. I have now been doing 3 months of treatment (steroid injections and a topical steroid) with no results.I am trying hard to stay healthy, positive, and busy while I learn to accept.
I have no hair on the top of my head because of Trichotillomania (hair pulling condition). But, long hair on the sides and back. I only pull on the top it seems.
Anyways, I read your discussion about being skeptical of getting a wig. There are these wigs you could buy that aren't full wigs called "toppers" and they just go on the top of your head. From your picture, you have beautiful long locks. I don't own a topper yet, but I plan on getting one because its summer. :)
