Will I have alopecian babies?

Posted on January 18, 2016 at 4:30pm 23 Comments

It has been a while since I have been on the site. The holidays and school took me away for a while but things have settled down again and I intend to do a lot more posts on Alopecia World in the coming months.

I have much news to share, where shall I start. . . .

It was a wonderful holiday season for me, one of the best in years. I had a house full of people for about two weeks straight and I loved every moment of it. Anyone that knows me knows that I love the holidays…


Why I'm Not An Alopecia Sufferer

Posted on November 17, 2015 at 9:58pm 6 Comments

Early on when I was first impacted by Alopecia and I wanted to explain it to the few people I told.  I would say that I had an auto-immune disease called Alopecia.

One day someone stopped be as I verbalized this and told me not to ever profess/claim a disease with my mouth or in my mental thoughts.

His position was that are words and powerful, almost as powerful as our thoughts.  And that we should all be particular of the language we use to edify our lives.



For a Reason Or For Style, Is the Question

Him: "Girl you are wearin' that bald head, is that for a reason or just for style."

Me: First I give him the side eye, then I reply "its because I look so good wearing it, as you just pointed out."  I continue what I am doing and pay him no extra attention.

Him:  "Haha, your sassy; I like you!  Do you shave it yourself?"

Me: Thinking to myself, really dude?!?!  "I don't have to shave it"  I decide to take the educational route and tell him…


If You Are Happy, Tell Your Face and SMILE

We humans walk around so consumed by our thoughts and emotions. We often times don't realize how we are presenting ourselves to the world.

As a bald head wearing alopecian I often find people looking at me, when I look back at them they seem very uncomfortable at first.  The thing that I have found that helps to ease this situation the most is to flash a "big ole" SMILE at them.  This works on all ranges of people children to grumpy old men.

Have you ever noticed that when…

Kristie, I have had all of those experiences - except for the dope who commented how African American women can pull off being bald. I've gotten the "nice shaped head" and all that. I too, decided I would not use the word "disease" and my substitute is "condition". It is an autoimmune "condition" as far as I am concerned - LOL. As for "sufferer," please. I am living with alopecia universalis, not "suffering". You go, girl.

Thanks for the friend invite. I have been living here since 1990 by way of Ann Arbor, MI. I had to leave the cold and snow, couldn't take it anymore. Love this site, I have met so many loving and understanding people here. Enjoy the rest of your day.
