About Me:
I have had alopecia universalis since I was eight, but at 55 have developed complete universalis. That is, I did have very minor hair, but now have lost that! I stay faithful that my hair will come back despite what I read. I wear wigs and have NEVER disclosed my situation, regardless of if other have suspected something. I think I've done a pretty good job of hiding it. Believe it or not, I am married for 30 years to the same man and he knows I wear a wig and am sure he doesn't care. Primarily because I do an excellent job of masquerading. :( EVERYDAY it is a struggle, more mentally than physically. I am determine, even in my darkness moments to keep it moving. God is in my corner. I KNOW he would not have put this on me if he knew I couldn't handle it. Even when I sometimes think I can't, I keep pushing forward. I have 3 children, none have suffered with Alopecia! This is my first time writing on any Blogs about this. I refuse to let alopecia dictate my life and my happiness. It will be 48 years soon! There were times when I was a teen that I considered suicide, but now I just deal - and don't care. I still am not courageous enough to flaunt the bald bold look. It is not for everyone. I am just doing me. Today I took a huge step in coming about to blog about this. I am older and this forum was not open when I was young.

Let me first start off with the good....I've been married for over 30 years and have 3 children, none have Alopecia - thank God. Let me say secondly, it has not been easy. I first started losing my hair at age 8. I am now 55. My hair have never come back. My elementary and teen years were the worst. Thought sometimes of committing suicide. It is my faith in God that I didn't I am strong! I… Continue

Hi!
a virtual reality system is hair implanted on a dermalens like a contact (only not shiny) and then bonded with medical adhesive. you then go in monthly for maintenance. the website is www.virtualrealityhair.com. freedom wigs are made of silicone and mold to your head. theres a group here (under groups..enter freedom wig) for freedom wig wearers and that may help you get the info you need. hope this helps you.
