About Me:
I have been in the Alopecia world,since April 2009. Trying , some good some hard days, what else can you do? My hair started falling out while I was working one night shift. now it is all gone. Funny, 7 yrs ago I raised $money & cut my long hair to donate to a little girl named Morgan with alopecia, now I have alopecia. ????? sometimes I feel bad, but then I am usually a positive person and like to look at my cup 1/2 full not 1/2 empty. I am married to an amazing man, who loves me for me, I have 3 boys that are great about it. So each day I tell myself it is ok, this is small in the grand scheme of life.

Wow, that would be amazing! I have never been to one; I'd like to one day though. You'll for sure have to let me know what its like!

Thats too bad you haven't found any. You're right, people who don't have it, do not understand completely. Thats why I'm glad I found this site. I looked on the NAAF website and found a lady listed under Thunder Bay and called her. She said she's gotten a few calls but after only one visit, they tend to not show up again. So she hasn't had much luck in setting up a support group. I am going to visit with her and another AU sufferer at the end of this month. I will let you know how it goes and maybe if we get something going, you could come visit!! Have a good day!

Thank you. I had permanent makeup (tattooes)done in April-May 2008. I wasn't completely happy with the way the operator did them. The eyebrows weren't the shape I wanted, and she used black for the eyeliner (instead of black/brown) as I had wanted, and she made the eyeliner way too thick for my taste. And, since it was black, it's now turning blue-ish. BUT, it's better than having to draw it all on every morning, and then having it come off quickly.

I went to a more skilled lady in Spring 2012 here in San Diego. She corrected some of the problems with the eyebrows in terms of their shape and color. She told me she can lessen the color of the liner, but I haven't had that done yet.

I apply brown brow powder over the brow tattooes to darken the color. It just takes me a few seconds.

It's very important to choose your artist well. Ask to see photos of other work, and maybe even meet with some former clients.

Hi there! That is awesome that you're so close! Do you have any support groups there?

Hi Denise, thanks for the post. To answer your question, yes I lost all my brows and eyelashes for years, now have some regrowth...not much on my brows but enough to put mascara on my lashes although I normally forget. I have my brows and eyeliner tatooed and it was the best thing I did when I became AU. I hated losing them more than my hair!

HI Denise--how have you been? Any news on if you are going to go to the conference?
I haven't been on in awhile and just wanted to shoot you a hello!

Hi Good Morning Denise,
Yes, that is a good idea, about the salon's I will try that, I actually order one from Paula
Young, and might send it back too much hair. I'm so glad to have found this site, it is
nice to see how each person does with the condition. and how they go about wig wearing
and buying.. No one has any idea when it first starts on what to do. So a big thank you
for everyone out there. Thanks for any advise you have or what you have found that makes it a bit easier for you. Hope Spring gets here soon,, We have about foot and half of snow today from last night...

Good Morning.
Thank you for lovely words of advise. I can use each word you all have said. I know I'm losing my more each day, I have received a wig from Paula Young but it is way to much hair for me. So I don't know yet, what I'm going to do,,, I really don't know who I would take it too, or maybe I will just order something else with less hair. Thanks. I know some days are worst then other right now. I hope it get easier. I think it might after I come to terms with all of this and my family too, and everyone else I know...
