HI, I have had alopecia universalis since I was 2 years old. I am so glad that Cheryl Carvery sent me the email regarding this site. I truly enjoy the NAAF conferences that my husband and I attend and the opportunities that they give me to make new friends in the alopecia world. If anyone would like to write me regarding their experiences with alopecia I would love to get to know you.
How long have you been hypo? Though I got AA only about a year ago, but I hear it could turn into AU or AT. You never know from one day to the next what's going to happen. If I knew for sure either way, it probably would be easier to accept, at least you know where you stand. You have had it all your life. Is it easier for you to deal with it? The not knowing is driving me crazier than the disease. My thyroid seems to be under control and I feel pretty good otherwise, except there are always some little symptoms that become annoying. I take Levoxyl. What do you take? I used to take Synthroid, but I found out that with me, Levoxyl at the same dosage brought my numbers down and I felt better. I'm so glad I found this site. Actually someone on the NAAF site mentioned it. I never heard of this disease before until I got it. I'm amazed at all the people all over the world that have come together for support and friendship. God Bless you all!
