Hi. I live with alopecia universalis since I was 11. Everything started very fast and when I realized had no hair. I think that was the worst time to happen because I was starting to be a teenager! Here in Portugal there is not much support and nobody knows this problem! There is much bias! For three years I refused to wear a wig because I always thought that would be ridiculous. But inevitably began to use, coinciding with the change to another school and from there almost only kept this secret with me. It may have been a mistake but when you are 15 years old is a very difficult time to deal with all this. I lived my life as someone else but now, when I'm 25, I understand have to start to change and begin to share this with others, even while continuing to wear a wig. People who will reject me is because will not lack in my life! I wish find here, in this great community, support for a new life!
I visited the website to share information and experiences!
