I've had Alopecia since I was five. It started in small patches but fell completely out when I was about 13. My health was normal for a long time but once my hair fell out completely my immune system…Continue

About Me:
I have had Alopecia since I can remember. When I first got it it started in little spots and got worse. I moved from Chicago to Wisconsin when I was 14 and completely lost my hair. I have learned its not something to be upset about but something to be proud of because it makes you stronger. I have friends and family that love me regaurdless of how I look. I think the best people in the world are the people who love you for who you are on the inside and adore you for who you are on the outside.

Alopecia totalis

Not alone

A girl stares into her bathroom mirror and doesn't recognize the face she sees. Putting up her hood she hopes that the covering will bring back some form of recognition. Next she tries a hat followed by jewelry, make-up, a scarf. Nothing she places in the reflection can help her to give the girl in the mirror a name. Who is this girl? When did she lose the ability to recognize herself? Is that girl in the mirror really her? She watched tears slowly run the the cheeks of that girl, the one in…


Sometimes I feel like a fake

Sometimes I feel like a fake. I try to present myself to other people as someone who is strong and in control of the situation. I see hundreds of people each day who I know has their own struggles to deal with and sometimes I forget my own. I do not realize that my spots might be showing or that someone could be staring. I come onto this site and I look at all the pictures and think to myself that everyone is so beautiful. I saw a girl with Alopecia and I cried at her beauty and strength.…

I am super excited! I started treatment for my Alopecia about a week ago. There isn't a gaurntee that it will work but just thinking about having braids again makes me so happy I have tears in my eyes. There are many friends that tell me they like what I look like without my hair but I I had thick red curls and looked like I was actually my grandmothers child because she has the same red hair. The shots are somewhat bothersome but I hope in the end it is worth it.

Something else… Continue

I have been in several realtinships since my alopecia took all my hair. I was always worried that no one would love me because of how I looked. Many of the relationships I was in left me feeling less than confident. No man ever really made me feel beautiful. For the longest time I thought that my alopecia would stop me from finding true love, a man I could stay with and who would make me feel beautiful when he looked at me. My mother was in the hospital and her nurse has alopecia. I never met… Continue

Hi Natasha! I just wanted to give a shout-out to my fellow Wisconsin-ite! I grew up in Milwaukee but now live and work in DC. I still love going back to WI to visit my family- I definitely miss the beautiful autumns. GO BREWERS!! :D

Hey Natasha,
My book is called "If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" and it just won two national awards, one Book of the Year. There's a lot of info on it on my page if you scroll down further. It's a good read, lots of information, pretty funny and upbeat. You can get it on Amazon.
