About Me:
I was just diagnosed with AA in April....on my mother's birthday actually. I have good and bad days...

If my alopecia is stress related the only thing I can think of that could have caused all this was my dog passing away last year. I can't believe that going through that could be causing me to lose my hair. I had never even heard of alopecia until the day I discovered I had a bald spot. I had no idea what was happening and still struggle with understanding and acceptance. I hope that somehow meeting people will here will help me down the road.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata

Hi Kara,
Well, the hubby shaved my head once...that's it. Nothing has grown back. I still have stubble in some areas but for the most part, I think I'm still losing the rest. C'est la vie!! I know some people shave their head clean but I don't mind the stubble, It hasn't affected how the hairpiece feels. In fact, my wigs are wearing much better since I did shave the rest off. All the best.

Hi Kara,
I know how you feel. I never knew about alopecia either until I discovered a bald spot on my daughters head. You will find tons of support here.

Hello and welcome, Kara!
That reminds me of how hard it was when my precious soul-mate cat died 8 years ago. I lost 20 lbs (and wasn't overweight in the first place). Anyway,
I know how hard alopecia can be; I have had it for about 30 years. After I became the spokesperson for the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, a lot of women were needing my help and support, so I wrote a book called, "If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" You can find out more on my page -- and it's available on this site under "Bookshelf." Let me know if there's anything else I can do!
