Scalp issues...who else has this problem?

Curious, how many Alopecians also have problems with their scalp. My head often gets scaley, sores, or dandruff like places, dry skin patches, bumpy...not sure now to describe them..all I know is,…Continue

My husband doesn't think I should be looking at wigs :(

"I don't know why you are looking at those wigs, you don't need one yet"...Am I wrong, but I just feel like seeing what is available for me can't be a bad thing. I don't know the timeline on my…Continue

About Me:
I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata on 10/4/10. I first noticed my bald circles back in August. I am 49 years old, married, with three grown sons, a daughter in law,and one grandson. My interests/hobbies are: scrapbooking & photography, reading, quilting, parasailing, going to the beach, American Sign Language, listening to music that makes me feel good. I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Bella and Copper. They always seem to make my day! I have been distant from AW for a while now. My mom was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer a year ago, and passed away April 18, 2014. As for my hair, it's thin, but it's in. It just wont grow, so I stopped getting hair cuts almost completely. Trying to adjust to a 'new normal' without my mom.

Alopecians...do NOT boost your immune system!

Posted on July 2, 2011 at 1:35pm 8 Comments

Several months ago, I decided to start taking Zinc for my Alopecia Areata, thinking it was a good thing to boost my immune system. After probably a couple of weeks on the Zinc, I began to wonder if this was a good thing to do, or not. Well, at this years NAAF conference, what I began to suspect was confirmed. DO NOT take Zinc, or anything else to boost your immune system!!! Your immune system is attacking your hair follicles, thus, boosting your immune system only aids in what is causing your… Continue

Saying goodbye

Posted on February 24, 2011 at 12:51am 7 Comments

Today was one of the worst days of my life. We had to say goodbye to our 14 year old Yorkie, Luxy, aka "Baby Dog". No words can express the pain that I am feeling, nor can anything soothe my heart. I watched as his body became weaker and weaker...his eyes were blind, his ears, deaf. A week ago, he began to loose his bladder control, and wet in his pin at night. But he was still roaming the yard, like he was having an adventure or something. Yesterday, I noticed that he was shivering, and today,… Continue

Time for a two month update

Posted on February 9, 2011 at 3:44pm 10 Comments

I initially lost my first bit of hair in August. Diagnosed in October. Took pictures in October, December, and now February. (every 2 months)

I had steroid injections on October 3rd, but opted not to have them anymore, since my insurance did not cover Alopecia. I noticed new growth, though no color to it, but do not know if it was due to the injections or… Continue

Where did it go? My arms now!

Posted on December 31, 2010 at 10:34am 6 Comments

Well, I have been noticing the hair on my arms is now almost completely gone..weird. I even thought of sticking some tape to my arm, just to see if there was anything there for it to pull on...I am not sure when it left me, but it's not there anymore...my arms are bald...with the exception of a stray hair here or there. Wow! I am amazed at all of the little surprises that comes with Alopecia...and I am no where close to having AU...guess that's why I was so surprised. Guess I won't have to… Continue

Looks like you had a great time! I was up in the mountains...go see my photos. Maybe the next time NAAF comes to West Coast, I will be employed!

Hey Diana,

I'm a little slow getting around to blogs/discussions sometimes and just now read about you losing little Luxy. I am so very sorry. My westie is 15 with several heath issues and I'm not to sure how much longer I will have him ... so I can relate. They really are part of our family. ( and in some cases the best part! :) ) Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers.
