I have a 13 year old daughter who has alopecia. She started getting patches at 4 years old and up until recently was pretty much controlled. This year she has lost most of her hair and is having such a hard time dealing with this. I'm not sure how to handle the situation.
I'm glad to pass on the info. That's great that Becky is getting some regrowth hey a ton of people regain their hair and keep it so keep the faith.
Wow, so she was really getting a lot of foods that were bad for her that is great that you found it out. I bet your gonna see a world of difference from here on out.
I just change from a T4 to a T3/T4 for the same reason and I feel great it really change me. I have way more energy ect ect I can go on forever. I actually have a web site that I have been tellinganyone who has thyroid problem about it's www.stopthethyroidmadness.com It had a ton of great info. we also have a group for people with Hashimoto's Disease if thats what she has so you can get more info.
Hi it's me again\
I have the infor on the other vacuum dealer in our area he is in Oak Brook Il the name is called Bloombrook International you can order a free DVD and information packet on line I guess he is more affordable
yeah i am 15!
sorry i havent replyed for a long time!
it all started when i was 7 and grew back but then occurd and i have been dealing with it ever since!
my hair just started to recently start to faall out again!
its hard to deal with but i am doing a pretty good job!
so how have you been?
I have only got one response and Jillian is only able to make weeknights so we are going to have to figure out something. I will let you know soon if more people want to join in or maybe we could meet ourselfs
I know they are very expensive there is also another place in oak brook you may want to check out. I think they may be a little less and are closer to home if repairs are needed. But you can look at it this way.
1. They do cost a lot and insurance will not cover at least mine wouldn't cover my reg wig. but I did claim it on my taxes as a health expence.
2. I've heard depending on how aggressive you are like do you sleep in it or how ofeten you style and wash them they don't wear as fast.
3. you can use tax refund to pay for it
4. other wigs last 3-5 months so you have to keep rebuying them so your spending a lot on that too.
you really should look into starting a fund for her I bet a lot of people on this site would be willing to help her out and donate, that's what I saw on Karens site.
I know what you mean though I have 3 kids and would love another but gosh they are expencive critters. Two of mine are headed to school this year and yeah with back to school clothers and supplies I hear you loud and clear.
I will get you the name of the other vacuum wig maker in the area.
Well she looks happy in her pictures I do hope that's how she feel inside. With the support of her family and friends she will cover come anything that comes her way.
Is that a wig she's got on? It looks great if it is.
I commented on the vaccum wig dicussion. I've been asking a ton of quesitons and from what everyone is saying they are next to having your onw hair again. I've met the women to sells them in our area her web site is www.newlifehair.com her name is Karen you should take a look at her site. also on her page she had a family who wanted a vacuum for their daughter but couldn't afford one out of pocket so they were raising money for it. I think they raised over 3,000. Also there is another site you may want to look at its Team Alopecia lots of great info on there, take a look.
Thanks for accepting my friend request. I have 2 daughters and a son and have no idea what i would do to make them feel better if one of them lost their hair. That just hurts my heart thinking it. Going through it myself I know it helps having my mom to talk to and the support she offers.
Becky looks like a wonderful little girl and her hair look great is a vac or reg wig?
there is a pic of me what i used to look like on my myspace page so you can put a face with the name.
new to the computer stuff so not sure how to download pic's have to have my husband do that. lol
