About Me:
I am from Washington and am in college currently. I love reading, cooking, music, games, making art and being outside. When I was 19, I first noticed a small bald spot on my head that has grown bigger and bigger, and now hair all over my body has started coming out. It is really hard but I am trying to work through it. I would love to make connections to give and get support for our problem.

U feel like u want to feel, girl. I feel the same way
From a logical standpoint, i know that hair is beautiful just like u do. I have had a bout of this the worst this time for about 3 years (after surgery, surprise surprise), so i feel u - 3 years worthm. Dont let these people be sunshine cult cheerleaders when youre not feeling it. If it's any consolation, at least someone understands and can be real with u and admit they feel the same.

For me, this came from years of experience..... hang in there.never refer to yourself as UGLY. God doesn't make mistakes.
