Hi Connie,
I'm glad you had a nice Christmas.
I guess it takes us all awhile to feel comfortable in our own way.
Have you thought about attending NAAF with Chris this year in LA? There are lots of kids there of all ages. It might me good for him.
Have a Happy New Year!

Being susceptible to infections and viruses can be a bitter pill to swallow! I am certain you have done your research on this matter. I know that immunotherapy isnt a popular option due to the potential side affects but if you have a good, experienced specialist who knows how to administer the dosages and keeps a close eye on the bloodwork, some of the therapies can be very beneficial.

I think its cool that there is another person out there like me. I have been growing up with this condition for my whole life. I understand the issues he deals with on a daily basis at school...specifically as a teenager. I was able to rise above it so I am sure he will too. Now I am about to retire in 6 years from the military I wish nothing but the best for the young man. - Eric

Yes. I am currently on the Immunotherapy path. I started taking Sulfasalazine and have had some positive results but I think I will end up having to take CellCept or Cyclosporin. I believe there will be a cure for Alopecia in the near future and it will involve treating the immune system.

My Colits is getting bad. I have had Alopecia all my life and with this Ulcerative Colitis kicking in when I got back from Iraq I am wondering if it is something I have been ingesting my whole life. They did some food allergy tests on me but I am not allergic to wheat so I am not sure if that rules out Gluten/Celiac. I am Lactose intolerant so maybe its the milk in my food products. I am going to ask my Dr. next time I see her if she can find out if that has anything to do with it.

Hi Connie! I'm glad to hear that Chris seems to be adjusting. You're right though - high school is a challenging enough time without having to deal with alopecia! Hopefully Chris has some good and accepting friends who don't care that he doesn't have hair. I bet though that he will make it through high school just fine and will probably come away from it feeling like a stronger person having dealt with alopecia at such a young age (I know that I certainly feel stronger!). Does he play any sports or participate in theater or band? I found that keeping busy always kept my spirits high. Hope you had a great weekend!
