Me too..and now to meet people who share the same experience.
I have family in Atlanta!'WOW"
I have been so alone as we all have..for far too long.
Here at Alopecia World we now have eachother and a common thread to connect us all.
Hi Ms. Yvette
I was looking for people of color that has experenced AA. I may be in denial. I am not sure or just dont want to face the fact. My daughter which is 10 yrs. old was diagnosed at 8 w/AA. she had this spot for about a year that grew in after about 3 month of treatment, been ok for about 11/2 years, I didnt know shedding was part of the process untill I discovered this site. what's weird is she is shedding and growing at the same time, no bald spots yet which is my main fear. she had been shedding for about 5 months, but like i said still have new hair growing in, do anyone know of this happening? Oh! I also wanted to say to you, It's great that you wear wigs for andwith your daughter. I had said if my daughter loses her hair I will also, go the miles with her.
HI YVETTE, I HAVE AU AND HAVE HAD IT OVER 10 YRS. I HAVE A 5YR OLD DAUGHTER AND FIND MYSELF CONSTANTLY CHECKING HER SCALP TO SEE IF SHE IS DEVELOPING ALOPECIA. HOW IS YOUR DAUGHTER COPING WITH ALOPECIA?
Wow, I know how hard it can be! I have had alopecia for about 30 years. After I became the spokesperson for the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, a lot of women and girls were needing my help and support, so I wrote a book called, "If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" It might make you and your daughter feel better! Check it out on my page -- and let me know how else I can help.
Hi Ms. Yvette, I wanted to welcome you to Alopecia World. I can honestly say that we are a great community here and I hope you enjoy the time you spend with us and we look forward to your input. Cheryl, co-founder
Thank you for the friend request. My daughter went through a boat of AA and I have had Au for the past 15 years. At this point life is great and I will not allow Alopecia to become my burdens. Let her know she is not alone and feel free to contact me anytime.
