I got alopecia areata about a year and a half ago, and nobody I know has it so I figured maybe it would help to join this considering everybody knows how it feels, my profile picture was before I got it. Now im almost entirely bald and for some reason I still cant bring my self to shave the rest of it, but really all I want is my hair to grow back now. I can't even remember what I stressed about before when I had suuuch nice hair because now I feel like everything would just be perfect if it would all be there again.
thanks girl :) i got my straight wig from a local wig shop that took pity on me and i got my curly one from some random online store. my friends have had really good results buying wigs from forever young :) they're really cute and geared more towards younger people. As far as coming out goes, it only gets easier with time, one day i was up late at night and i just decided i was tired of hiding and i posted it on facebook. I've gotten both positive and negative responces but it's just something you have to be ready for. if you're okay with it, most people will just follow your lead. :)
