Hello everyone. I am so happy to find this online community. I was officially diagnosed with alopecia areata today and spent a lot of time crying. I am not new to auto-immune diseases with having Hashimotos and Celiac's already.

Seems like an oxymoron, right?
How could there be advantages to this condition? It makes us alopecians feel ashamed. It makes us feel different. And it makes us live in fear, a lot of the time...especially if we're still at the stage of covering our patches with stick-on pieces or wearing a full wig.
It can even lead to us feeling anxious and depressed – something I have…Continue
