About Me:
I've had AA for 20 yrs. I've been in denial for honestly the entire time. I wore a wig from age 18 - 23 and have been wig free for 15 years. Unfortunately, it's time again and I'm not accepting it very well. I'm so mad and even more angry that I'm angry! I'm not dying so I should feel fortunate. I'm completely miserable and depressed. That basically sums me up at this point :(
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?

Just want to shout out to see if anyone has any tricks for keeping tangles away. Especially the underneath of the back. It's so frustrating. The only trick I have so far is to load up on mousse so it's so crunchy it just sticks to itself.

Bald and Beautiful...I don't see it...why can't I see it?

I look in the mirror and see an alien..I definitely do not see beauty. I work at a local speedway in the Budweiser booth serving beer (as a part time gig) and I hear all night how pretty I am. I come home, peel my hair off and say "what a fraud".

Hello Lynn,
Thank you for the friend request:) I'm new to the website, and don't really know that many people yet! It's very hard for me to deal with this disease. I'm in middle school, and i'm not brave enough to walk around without a wig on. I'm ashamed of myself, and embarrased. I absolutely HATE alopecia. It makes me very depressed, and upset. What do you think about it? How do you cope? You seem like a very nice person, and i look forward to hearing back from you:D
Have a great day,
Sarah Posante

Hey Lynn,
Thank you for your honesty. Most days I feel like thats all I have left. I know what its like to feel like a fraud. I know I'm pretty... when I wear my wig. I used to FEEL pretty before my hair fell out, without make up. Now to come home, peel off my lie, and not recognize whats left. The worst part of this is feeling like no one else in the world could understand me. The denial is still in and out... but I'm finding the more I embrace it, the tiny moments where I own it and open up about it and tell people... the easier it has become to swallow. And not always, but sometimes it helps. I want to be courageous, I want to be strong and accept it... but its not easy. Sometimes its impossible.
Being a hairdresser is a double edged sword. I always feel like people look at me in the salon and see through me, but it helps to know to how cut/color/style hair pieces. And I've learned many makeup tips to hide that I don't have eyebrows/eyelashes.
I feel like I just dumped my heart on your wall... I hope thats ok. I take my day moments at a time, knowing I can start it over anytime by trying to be nice to myself. I hope this was helpful.
Chin up,
Lynds

honestly i can't remember exactly, but i think it was around $400 for the first session...then you typically have them done a second time 6 months later b/c the tattoo fades. email him directly and he can give you his exact quotes

Hi, My implants were saline but the shell is silicone. I would always have a reaction to silicone things but I was young and never thought that oh yea silicone breaks me out and gives me blisters don't put it in your body. I do think that having them in confused my immune system. I just want to get to the point that this is just a part of me now and except it. But it is much harder said then done. How did you learn to except it?
