Attaining freedom

Posted on November 23, 2011 at 6:30pm 2 Comments

I feel as if I've reached the beginning of a sense of freedom. When I talk of freedom I mean freedom from self, inner relief, freedom from restrictions.

I don't want to get into this sad tragedy of my hair loss at 13. It happened, I struggled, I got bullied, and I went through a long stage of hiding behind wigs and generally hatting myself.

I wanted to say, however, for all those loosing their hair right now, it doesn't have to be that way. When I was 13 growing up in a smaller…

Hi Devan, I'm bringing this week to an end, was not too bad. Was traveling and didn't shave what comes out here and there. Got the first time some naughty comment on this irregular stubble thing. But I can take it. I am back to smooth. Hope you are doing well. thanks for sharing your stories.

That is it, before I found this site I was thinking about "my" looks. Now it is "our" looks - something shared with other wonderful people. And it is amazing to realize how this condition can make people strong. Pity that we are not seen enough. I feel sorry for some who feel like turning into a "monster" when losing hair - just because societal standards suggest and market the "importance" of hair. I like my hairless body and wouldn't like it otherwise. Thanks for being here!

Thanks! I like us showing our unique beauty. The more we are seen the more having no hair becomes just a "normal" feature. Great to meet bald mates here - I'm the only one in my little world.
