I truly believe I will never have hair and it is OK

Posted on August 28, 2010 at 7:42pm 5 Comments

Tonight I was sitting here, reading some other posts by people, talking about differnt treatments, talking about bits of hair sprouting back, talking about possibilities. And for me it is never like that, I truly don't expect my hair to ever grow back. I guess after 10 yeas I just can't see it happening. I've become so accustomed to it that I don't even think about that part. I rarely even think about the part where i don't have hair to start with.

When i first lost my hair it ll came out… Continue

Why alopecia makes me a better person

Posted on January 25, 2010 at 1:00pm 9 Comments

Hi, if you have read my other two blogs you know I am pretty good with my AU, that I actually in some ways like it at this point. Here are some reasons why

1. I am stronger- this is kinda obvious, we are all stronger because of this, we go through a life changing thing really, especially in our culture where looks are so important, where hair is a billion dollar industry, we are thrown into this and we must deal, we must be ok, and we are. it is only hair. I repeat that to myself… Continue

Finding out I had Alopecia- 2000

Posted on April 27, 2009 at 11:28pm 3 Comments

I noticed I was losing more and more hair in June of 2000, at age 15. We had no idea what it was, I had read about Alopecia once in a magazine, but it sounded like a nightmare, I loved my hair. I relied on it really. And then it didn't stop coming out, clump after clump, it came from all over, no patches, and rapidly fell out. By July it was pretty Bad, August almost gone. Just so thin all over.

I think it was July when we got into see the Dermatoligist in a city a few hours away… Continue

Just some thoughts

So as I put in my about me I am 23 years old, I got or developed or whatever you want to call it , AU when I was 15.. within a few months it was all gone, thinning evenly all over my head and soon to follow my eyelashes, eybrows and everything quit growing. Anyway the day I was actually diagnosed with Alopecia I bawled, cried and cried forever, I loved my hair, I was a 15 year old girl so of course I did! Anyway after that first day I got better and better and accepted it more and more,… Continue

Welcome to the International Alopecia Day Group, Erin! I'd love to include a photo from Canada this year.

Hello there Erin. Thank you for posting your positive comments about your situation, about your view on life. You're right, I also think "What am I complaining about?" There are so many other unfortunate situations out there in this world. And you pointed out that we all sometimes look for new hair growth, etc, and really I feel tired of doing it. I'm so tired of doctors and their nonsense, tired of spending my hard-earned money on numerous supplements, etc. and worrying about this. This site, and people like you are encouraging for me to get on with my life and quit worring, accept what is happening, and move on. Whoever can't accept this, or the 'new me' when I shave off the rest will be missing out. ha! Thank you again. also, I think you're quite lovely in all your wigs and bald too, and your tattoos! Man I want one, a peacock feather, intricate but vibrant on my back :-) I've seen a few of them at the airport, they're gorgeous! Take care, enjoy as you have been! -Sarah K.
