About Me:
I was 25 when my hair started falling out. It was an up and down rollercoster ride. Sometimes I had hair, and sometimes I didn't. I went to the dermatologist for 6 years every 5 weeks for cortisone injections. I also tried prednisone. The prednisone helped, but only while I was taking it. I have finally come to terms with my condition and people would never know unless I tell them. I'm not going to lie. At first, I was completely devastated. I was always the girl with the beautiful, long, blonde hair. I would often wonder "Why me?" It took me years to come to terms with my condition. Alopecia has been a blessing in disguise. It has made me realize what is important in life, and it has truly made me a better person. I am now a more beautiful person inside and out. I have learned not to sweat the small stuff in life. Life is too short to not enjoy it to the fullest. I am thankful everyday for all of my wonderful friends and family who have supported me through my journey with alopecia. I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason. I believe alopecia has made me the strong, caring, compasionate person who I am today. I am glad I found this website so I can share my story and help someone else who may be in a similar situation. The good thing about having alopecia, is that you never have to shave again. That is a definate plus.

Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?
