About Me:
I'm a 39 year old married mother of three. I just moved to Milton, DE from Baltimore, MD and really love it so far.

I've had alopecia areata off and on for about 17 years. I used to have bald patches that I could easily disguise by styling my hair differently, but I progressed to alopecia universalis a couple of years ago. I stopped taking prednisone after taking it for 10 years, so I kind of doubt my hair will come back. The hardest part about losing all my hair this time has been also losing my eyebrows and eyelashes. However, I had my eyeliner and eyebrows tattooed on and it was the best thing I could have done for myself!!!

My family and Baltimore friends all know that I'm bald and love me the way I am, but I usually wear a wig or a bandanna when I go out. Now that I've moved to DE, I've been always wearing my wigs, so no one here knows yet. I guess I should've just started out here letting people know right away, but so far I haven't. The funniest part is that I work part-time in a hair salon of all places!!!

Sometimes I get kind of down, but I try to remain as upbeat as possible. Life is too short to worry about the opinions of strangers.
Do you have alopecia?

Just had to write and say how at peace I finally am with this whole thing. Having aa was so damn hard on me, but now that I have au (which you would think would be worse) I just don't seem to care. Everyone has been so awesome -- even jealous -- that I no longer have to shave my legs that it's almost funny! I am lucky to have a husband and kids who honestly don't care what I look like. I'm beautiful in their eyes and that's what's important.

It's strange.....I really don't know what… Continue

I enjoyed looking at your pics. It's also good to see someone else that enjoys life - hair or no hair.

Hi Daria. Nice to hear from you. To answer your question, in early March 2008, I got an email from the Shear Genius producers. It went to the local AA support group, and I was on their email list. I called and sent photos and was asked to be on the show. It was taped at the end of March. I'm is SUCH a different place now! The whole attitude of the show was "let's help these POOR women who are so tragic....." You know what I mean. Now, I'd probably have taken off the wig on the runway and told them I thought I looked better bald!

It was an interesting experience, though, mainly because it was the first time I met so many other women with alopecia.

All the best,

Hi Daria,

I came across your page today and wanted to say hello.

Hi Daria:
It was just by accident that I googled around tonite and found Alopecia World. I always suspected there were others out there that looked like me and it's so great to see so many happy, full, smiling faces that look like mine looking right back AT me. Your photo gallery is beautiful. Like you, I do have girls as well (2) and they are the light of my life. From 12 to 48....that is the span of time that I've had to get used to alopecia areata which turned into alopecia totalis. Tough road but I'm good with it now.
You look awesome! Keep it up....If you're ever in Arizona...look me up.

Dear Daria, thank you fot these encouraging and beautiful words. You are truly blessed. I've been bald too, and my hair grew back,slowly. For the dutch association of aa patients I look for pictures and stories to publish in our magazine Hoofdzaak. That magazine is all about coping and accepting. I'would love to place a picture of you, is that allright with you? Greetings, Inez Proosten. www.aapv.nl
