About Me:
I have AA my entire life and up until i was 15 I dealt with the task of trying to cover up my many bald spots with what little hair I had. Finally I shaved my head. So now its 7 years later and I'm more comfortable with myself. I'm in a loving relationship with a person that loves me with or with out hair and has supported me through all my ups and downs with hair loss.
Things about me that have nothing to do with hair. I'm an animal lover, I enjoy spending my day hanging out wiht my dog. I love playing soccer, hiking, camping, pretty much anything outdoorsy. Right now I'm in college and thats proving the biggest challenge so far.

I have some other stomach problems where that may indicate a gluten allergy so I was considering going gluten free for a while. But if my hair grows back that would definitely be a plus.

My own worst enemy

I have had AA my entire life and have been basically bald for the last 3 years I still have been unable to rid my mind of my self loathing thoughts. It took me 2 years to convince myself to wear a wig , which I hate wearing it makes me feel like I'm hiding myself behind a uncomfortable and itchy disguise but I wear it in fear of dealing with the comments and looks of my peers. Before that I would wear a cap to school and a big jacket to hide myself in and for awhile it worked I made myself… Continue

So im 16 years old and i finally decided that i want a wig. Im having trouble finding a place to get one. Can some one give me some advice were to getr one. I have a wig already but i didnt really get to pick it out. my mom and the wig lady basically picked it out and ignored what i said on it. I really dont like that wig either.

So im in track and i wear a bandana to protect my head from the sun.I was runing the 100 meter hurtles and as i was runing my bandana flew off in the middle of the race. I kept on runing for a couple of reasons 1 my coach would been like why did you stop 2 i was like in 2nd or 3rd place and i didnt know were my bandana went. no one said anything but it was still really embarrasing because there was a standuim full of people .

Yeah they really should,considering how long you have to wear them for if you're waiting on regrowth,and even longer if its permanent.
Emm,nothing much.Spend basically all my time doing homework at the moment.I just got two kittens - they're absoloutely gorgeous.And I went to London to see a show in the Westend.It's my birthday next week so thats why my mum took me to London.
