About Me:
well I have had alopecia for over 25 years and have walked proudly bald. I was a hairdresser before i got the disease. Business fell off after that hee hee...and I concentrated on raising my children , and got tattoos instead of a new hairstyle every year. I have recently gotten divorced and find that different is no longer fitting into my plans . So in order to conform I will start to where wigs .
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?

My Creed

Reading the pain and suffering of treatments that people go through. It boggles my mind....And my heart goes out to those dealing with the realization of the envitable. Once the dr. informed me that my body was attacking my hair follicles and not letting my hair grow. And that he could give me shots in my head! Just so I could have eyelashes and eyebrows !...I said are ya kiddin'?..I can draw them on!.... My family had the hardest time with it. My mom bought me a wig cause I was poor, married… Continue

I have been so happy

My days have been so wonderful and so much less lonely. I have been spending a good portion of my time with a fellow alopecian from this site. He is the most sweetest caring man I have ever had the pleasure to know. Most of you know him, he is indeed a freind to man and nearly half of the people on here. He brought me to this site, I had been alone with Alopecia for years to discover a whole new world of knowledge and freinds. I value each and every one of you . I hope that I can make my… Continue

I have had a wonderful summer this year. My first one being officially divorced. I took my first (of many) summertime vacations , a chance to play and sit beside my pond. I started to wear wigs out all the time .I joined this wonderful site and no longer feel alone in my differentness. I have found a peace inside me that I have not known in over twenty years. A meddling occurred between my two selves and I was able to see my life in it's completness, no more swiss cheese memory. All the good… Continue

I've never tried a beaubeau. Is it easy to make it look "pretty"?

Please forgive me. I've been off of the site for a couple of months and was pleasantly surprised to see a South Bend comment. Are you still trying to use wigs? They're definitely not my preference. Talk to you again soon. Peace.

Hi Lorena, Thank you for the welcome.

Hi Lorena, thanks for the compliment. My headscarf is called a BeauBeau and you can see them listed on www.4women.com
A fellow Alopecian owns this company based in the USA. There are like 60+ fabrics to choose from and there is no tying of the fabric involved! She has designed the headscarves so that you can literally place it on your head and go. There is an elastic built in and you can wear them 4-6 different ways. Be sure to check them out, and tell them Orbit sent you! :-) Have a great day!
