Hey, Thanks for the message. I was so pleased to find this site, now i can finally chat to people that share my condition! I have had alopecia for three years now and i'm starting to feel i should embrace it rather than be ashamed by it, but I still have yet to encounter another individual with it. I hope to become more involved, and i'm planning to upload a profile picture soon...
