Well, it's been 8 months and it seems that my hair is growing back in. Not all of it...there are still some pretty thin places. Honestly, though, it's like I stopped caring about it. I used to try to hide the spots, then I finally stopped. Life is still stressful, but at least I recognize it and can deal with it. WHEW! The worst is over.

My hair started falling out in December and in January I was diagnosed with alopecia areata. I now have 6 patches. The only treatment I'm doing right now is a topical steroid cream that I apply twice a day.

I'm concerned that my doctor told me there's no cause and no cure, but when I look online, I see people talking about vitamins, stress management, etc. Is there some special shampoo or hair treatment I should be using? Does stress make it worse? I don't feel stressed. Well,…

Sorry but I have to respond to what your doctor said, "there's no cause and no cure". Of course there is a cause it's just that the medical profession does not yet know what it is so they give the condition a Latin name so that it sounds like they know what they are talking about. Since there is a cause it would stand to reason that there is a cure. Many people have had this condition temporarily and then never again.

Keep your chin up. It does get easier with time and like others I would have to say that it has helped me to grow as a person. Sites like this are helping people cope and are also helping us share information about a possible cure. Hats off to the founders of this site.

I'm doing better today. Went back to the dermatologist. While most of the news was the same, he did say I have one spot (the biggest) on the back of my head that is definitely growing back in. That must be a good sign. I've decided to see a counselor to deal with the grief and sadness, and just work on getting rid of the stress in my life. I'm going to take it easy, maybe even start exercising!
