Don't judge me

You always hear : dont judge a person til you walked a mile in their shoes. This has become so apparent this past week, with my friends and family. You really cant blame or judge another for the choices they have made in life. We each have our own issues, adversities and ghosts in the closets. We each have made the best decisions with the resources we had at the time with the knowledge in which we had it. How can you sit in your glass house and judge them for those choices. I personally grew…

The road to acceptance


I wake up every day to light kisses on my cheeks, my sleepy eyes, my lips, the tip of my nose, my forehead, and lastly, my bald head. Lately I have been waking to heaven. The sight of my Superman smiling at me when I open my eyes is simply amazing. This seems to have been my husband’s morning routine lately. And I’m not the one to complain about it. I took it all with open arms. Like I said, it was heaven. This routine actually made me feel loved and accepted (first thing every…

How do you tell your children?

It has been a really long time since I was last on this site but I am in need of some suggestions, ideas or input please...

I have a new baby (girl) and I am wondering how others with children have chosen to tell their kids about their alopecia? I know that I have time (though it goes fast) before she will be able to ask questions, but I am still uncertain about how I'll respond.

I have never hidden my alopecia from my baby, nor have I hidden my wigs. However, when she's old…

Sensitive scalp

I thought I was alone with experiencing the itchy and sensitive skin. I can not wear the synthetic wigs or lace fronts.I can not use any fragrance type scents. If I wear perfumes, which are a little pricey. I believe that the alcoholis high in content and gives me some type of reaction. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm also looking to find the full lace fronts that are made with virgin hair and has not been treated

It's been a while

Hey guys! I hope all is well with you guys. As you may have noticed my life got a bit crazy and busy. I haven't been on here in over a year so here is a little bit about what's been going on in my life. My divorce is almost final so that makes me happy and sad all at the same time. Marrying some one to me ment spending the rest of my life with them but when the person I was with couldn't handle my disease and abused me because he wanted me to feel like a piece of trash, took me a long time…

Just another manic bald day

One of the joys of having Alopecia Areata and opting for the bald path is the need to shave every few days. I decided I will not learn to shave my own head, and have my husband do it to me instead. This way he’d have some participation in the delights of my Alopecia, because I’m nice like that. I have also decided to refer to him as “Superman” on this blog, because he is my superman (and this is my lame attempt at flattering him). So, every couple of days I would be niggling Superman into…

It's rude to stare

Some people should really be reminded of their manners, from curious looks to downright stare fest, seriously. I have been getting this a lot lately. Yes, I am bald. Yes, I’m a woman. No, it wasn’t by choice that I’m bald. No, I’m not on Chemotherapy. Yes, those are extra-bald patches you see scattered all over the backside of my head. Yes, it’s a disease; and before you give me that look, no, it’s not infectious. It’s Alopecia Areata. Google it. Get over it.

I would say I found out…

Cortisone injections are working to treat my nails

Hi - it's been a while since my last post about my nails that were lifting away from the nailbed. I've found something that seems to work - - although I have to say, it's pretty extreme. On two of my most affected nails where the nail had almost completely lifted away from the nail bed, I've received a cortisone injection at the cuticle line. Painful, but it seems to work. Next time, I'll apply some numbing agent the dr. prescribed before my next appointment.

Feeling quite melancholic about my hair loss...and also feel alone

I'm glad to chance upon this site and I've only joined last night. Guess I'll start at the beginning. I used to have a tremendous amount of hair when I was 18 (am now 46) except it was a very fine, frizzy type hair and back in the 80's, there wasn't the kind of hair products or curling iron straighteners we have today and so the only solution was to perm my hair. One day, I got my step mom to perm my hair but she pulled the curlers too tight which resulted in the perm solution literally…

I'm warming up to this site

Hi everyone!

I'm warming up to this site. I'm happy to have found it and wish I knew about it earlier. I'm nervous, I'm affirmed ... and I'm making sense of them together.

Thanks for being brave enough to share your stories and allowing me to see myself in those stories. I plan to share a photo soon.

Thanks (and please share all your love)
