Hi Sarah,
Your story is, unfortunately, not uncommon. People can be cruel. I'm sorry you have had to deal with it.

Much good wishes!

Hi Sarah
Welcome! I noticed you're in Brantford - I'm in Guelph. I've had alopecia all my life and I've recently started a support group called Palopecia for people in the area, you're welcome to attend a meeting, just let me know. Have fun here though, it's a great place!
