Profile Information

Relationship Status:
About Me:
I am 47, married to a wonderful man named Brett, 2 daughters, Kimi - 29, Kristin - 24, a stepson Zach - 16, a nephew, DJ-7, lives with me. My favorite pastime is chatting with my Alopecian friends online, and spreading Alopecia Awareness every chance I get!!!
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older
Your Website (Leave blank if you don't have one):

Okay world, where do I start?
I guess I'll tell it straight from the heart.
This condition I have started 7 years ago,
Why it picked me, I still don't know.
It may be heredity, it may be stress,
All I knew is the doctor could only guess.
There is no cause, or no known cure,
And, you'll lose more hair, that's for sure.
You may lose a little, you may lose it all,
There's no way to know how much will fall.
"This can't be true, this isn't fair,
I am a woman, I need my hair."
This "thing" called Alopecia, didn't stall,
Within three months it took it all.
No scalp hair, eyebrows, or eyelashes now,
I knew I had to accept it....But how?
I felt so alone and I couldn't share,
All I did was cry, I didn't care.
I bought some wigs, they hid it well,
I had Alopecia, but no one could tell.
I tried everything the doctors suggested,
But still, the hair, my body rejected.
Three years later, and still no hair,
And there I was still in despair.
So, then one day I went online,
And there I met these friends of mine.
A support group for Alopecia, how nice,
I can go to them to ask for advice.
I found out that Alopecia doesn't discriminate,
It attacks people from ages one through ninety-eight.
It doesn't care who, or where you are,
Whether in the USA or from afar.
And, whether you're black or white or red,
It'll take your hair right off your head.
You may get it back or maybe not,
Is there anything left that I forgot?
Yes.....Alopecians are beautiful inside and out,
And, people should know what it's all about.
Alopecians are not freaks or not contagious,
That way of thinking is truly outrageous.
I have lost all my hair but not my identity,
My Alopecian friends gave me serenity.
So, give us a chance, and don't make fun,
Alopecians are just like everyone!!!

The Meaning of True Love

Posted on November 16, 2010 at 7:45pm 0 Comments

It is sharing and caring,

Giving and forgiving,

Loving and being loved,

Walking hand in hand,

Talking heart to heart,

Seeing through each other's eyes,

Laughing together,

Weeping together,

Praying together,

And always trusting

And believing

And thanking God

For each other...

For love that is shared

is a beautiful thing--

It enriches… Continue

By ~ Joanne Baxter ~

When I'm an old lady, I'll live with my kids,

and make them so happy, just as they did.

I want to pay back all the joy they've provided,

returning each deed. Oh, they'll be so excited.

When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,

and bounce on the furniture wearing my shoes.

I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.

I'll… Continue

Children Learn What They Live

By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.

If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.

If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.

If children live with shame,…

Ants Never Cry "Uncle"

Charles Ghigna

Consider the little ant.

He never says, "I can't."

And so it comes as no surprise,

He carries things ten times his size.

The Art of Start

Charles Ghigna

Don't search for inspiration when

You have a task to do;

Just start your work and you will see

That it will soon find you.

Best Laid Plans

A plan is only good if…

It's Fine Today

Poet: By Douglas Malloch

Sure, this world is full of trouble-

I ain't said it ain't.

Lord, I've had enough and double

Reason for complaint;

Rain and storm have come to fret me,

Skies are often gray;

Thorns and brambles have beset me

On the road - but say,

Ain't it fine today?

What's the use of always weepin',

Making trouble last?

What's the use of always keepin'

Thinkin' of the past?

Each must…

Dotty, thank you for your very kind comment on my blog post. Much appreciated! And I LOVE your tattoos! I have two tattoos so far but none on my scalp so far. I intend to change that soon, though. Your tattoos look amazing! It's a pleasure meeting you.

Hi Dotty - long time since we last chatted.

Was wondering if the New England group wanted to hold Alopecia Day at Hopkinton State Park again this year, or hold it at a different location.

Hope you and the family have been well : )

Hi Dotty.  Glad to see you are posting.  Hope the road has smoothed out a bit for you.  My derm has suggested trying laser treatments.  So, of course, I am turning to you--the first person I ever discovered with alopecia--to ask if you have any knowlege of laser use for alopecia.  I've been through 3 rounds of the injections this time, but with no improvement.  I do love your page.  Even when I don't post, I read it.  Take care! --Denise
