This might be long but I am going to speak from my heart!
I was diagnosed two years ago (March 2014) after a bad breakup. I believe that stress is what triggered the disease to manifest. I went to my doctor and was completely unimpressed by her shoulder shrug response, "you just have one of those medical mysteries...I can give you steroid injections but it's no guarantee." I was already pretty health conscious at the time and said no thanks I will figure this out on my own. She gave…Continue

I'm sort of lucky I feel. Firstly I was going to post how long it has been since I last posted.. but I realised I don't post as I don't often think about my Alopecia very much.

Hi. I have recently lost my hair over 4 months. Its not coming back. I am distraught. I am having a very rough time wearing wigs esp. synthetic.

It broke my heart to take off my hair last night and put on a stand. This is making me want to die. I cannot go bare as I have scarring and its not for me. On th?e…Continue
