About Me:
I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata about 12 years ago. With cortisone shots, I had amazing regrowth and had a full head of hair (albeit GRAY) until this past April.

Between mid-April and Memorial Day, I lost all of my hair. And then my eyebrows. Then the hair on my arms, legs, underarms...and eventually - well, y'know.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older
