Doctors?

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 9:01pm 2 Comments

Does anyone in Colorado know of a good doctor? I feel like I need to push this lupus thing. The last place I went didn't feel like I needed to worry about it but I still feel like there is something else wrong with me..

Wow ireland would def be fun!!! We haven't thought much about the honeymoon yet...but the engagement is awesome!! So far I've got my dress, the caterer, venue, and lots more meetings coming up to get everything else in order :) Im so excited! My fiance is very supportive, he is glad about my new growth but like me is not focusing on it just letting it happen. I usually go bald around him unless we're in public (i am still self conscious although getting better). I also noticed some peach fuzz on top of my head so i am praying and hopeful. I think now that I've stopped focusing on the hair loss and ways to get it back that its just doing its natural thing!

yes you never realize how ur hair is important to you until its gone! im def trying the natural look more often. the eyelash thing is what drives me crzy though everything gets in my eyes including the hair from my wigs which is a pain but just something we have 2 deal with i guess :)

Hi! I can totally understand your feelings.I lost all my hair when I was in 2nd year of college.From having a healthy head of glossy black hair I went on to a bald scalp.I wore a scarf having decided not to hide that fact! But I was in India and a rarity. So I guess I stood out.
Now 30 years later my hair has come and gone like the seasons. And I have got a kind of thick skin.If I have any advice it is just that do not let hairlessness prevent you from doing anything.Life is still exciting!!

Hi Jen, I understand what you're going through..My daughter had it at age 8, she lost all her hair and as a mum It really hurt to see your daughter suffer..I took her to several doctors and gave her all sort of medications which didn't help her at all.. a year later, I saw this Calosol website..I read through their review and thought I have to give it a try..It's really expensive, but I was willing to pay anything for my daughter..We continously used Calosol product till she was 13 and took a photo every 3mos...The result was just amazing..Now my daughter is 14 and got all her hair back..Worth all the penny I spent on that product..

hey Jen, i was diagnosed at the beginning of this year with AU. my hair started falling out in Nov 2009 and i lost all body hair within the next 6 mos. Most recently my eyebrows and eyelashes fell out so i am no hairless :/. it has def been a struggle for me i got a few shots in my scalp with no real results and am now just taking hair vitamins. im glad you have a supportive guy thank god that mine has stuck through me with this and also helps me day to day in trying to regain my self-confidence. it gets a little easier everyday but it's still hard! keep confident & enjoy your loving family :)
