I am married a mother of a beautiful little girl. I love Jesus.I started losing my hair in my early teens . So I covered it up with weaves and wigs. Than one day on a friday afternoon .I had my brother to come over and shave it all off. When I turned around my brother had tears rolling down his cheeks and he said sister u are beautiful. I was so scared how people were going to treat me .The big test was my hubby who was at work when I Shaved it all off he knew I was going to do it one day. When he came home I was hiding in the closet. He hugged me so tight he said you are beautiful baby. I started going out more without my wigs. When I stepped out I held my head up and say God made me and I am fearfully and wonderfully made. :)
Hi - if you still live in San Diego and would like to meet some local folks with Alopecia, we're having a lunch to celebrate International Alopecia Day, Saturday, August 4, 2012.
We're having lunch (margaritas if you want) at Tio Leo's Mexican restaurant at 3510 Valley Centre Drive in Del Mar (It's actually in Carmel Valley, right off Hwy 56 and I-5). You can view their menu here: http://www.tioleos.com/
They're not charging us for the room, but there is a $10 per person (food and beverages total) minimum charge.
Gathering time is 11:30am - it will be casual and will continue as long as we're having fun. I'll bring my "International Alopecia Day" banner and anyone who wants to be in the photos for our annual YouTube video can. If you don't want to be in the photos, that's fine, too. We have a private room in the back of the restaurant. Come bald, in a scarf, or in a wig - or in your hair if you have it!
Please let me know if you're planning on attending so I can give the
