Still having a tough time

I will never be okay losing my hair again. I refuse to accept it. Some days are better than others, but this is not me. I feel like a weird version of my real self. I am just so angry. Life is funny. You wake up one day and your hair is gone, but it takes months or years to grow back. Funny, funny, funny. I just booked a trip to LA and I dread going because I don't think I'll have a good time as I would if I didnt have to deal with this. I'm just so overwelmingly sad right now.

I had a dream a few days back, It started like any other of my dreams. Wierd and I had no idea what was going on but then it came into focus. I was at my Grandmas and I had just woken up or something like that and my sister told me that I had my hair back. I was overflowing in joy and rushed to the bathroom to bursh my hair. (I miss brushing it the most)Anyway as I'm looking in the mirror I see that my hair is Blond and I mean Harry potter Malfoy Blond. This for some odd reason doesn't…

What makes you happy and keeps you going during the low moments?

Have any small happy moments that keep you going? Today, while driving I saw a pair of sisters, young, beautiful and with lovely hair. Immediately felt sorry for myself untill I saw them share a moment and start laughing....it was contagious! I smiled and was pulled away from my self pity and shared a happy moment with them. Felt good.

I have the greatest best friend in the world

Honestly, she is amazing! When I told her about my alopecia diagnosis, she told me we were together in dealing with it.

She bought me clip in extensions that are red and blue to show me that while I still have some hair, I can be stylish. She listens to my fears and complaints with no judgment. She buys me cards telling me I am beautiful. She texts me words of encouragement. She bought me a little donut looking thing that I thought was a shower body scrubber and it turned out to be a…

I've gotta be me

I recently traveled to my hometown for my nieces’ graduations. I had a blast! I was a bit nervous because this would be the first time most of my family (besides those who have seen my Facebook picture) would see my shaven head.

I walk through the door and my Dad doesn’t say a word. His wife, on the other hand, looks at me and says, “Sheila, we’ll go through my bag of wigs in the morning.” Nice to see you too, I thought. The next day she grills me about doctors, shots, and Rogaine.…

Thursday (June 21st) I went to work with my hat on as usual, but something in me wanted so much to take the hat off and wear my baldness. I confided in one of my co-workers how much I wish I had the nerve to take my hat off, because you see I wear my baldness out in public but just can't seem to do it at work. Well, my co-worker ask may I see your hat? I took it off and gave it to her, she put it in her drawer and locked it. She said now go back to your desk with your head held high. Now, I…

When the trickery dies and the wizard is exposed

When one finally loses all his magical figures that he is taught to worship from age one then you become sane reasonable person. The first magical creatures to go and that you believe commit miracles are the Easter bunny and Santa Claus, so much gives them away too many seen at the Mall and all too fat to get down a chimney, and as for the rabbit with food the way it is you know its dead before he gets to the first house. Now just…

Just been thinking...

I just been thinking a few things I thought I would share here.

I got all excited over a mini pampering day. But I'm very worried over something which is supposed to be fun. For a long time I haven't felt very girly. I've sort of forgotten who I am. A bit stuck in a rut. I'm sure allopecia has it's part to play in the girly side of things. Although I do still love my wig even if at times it irritates me and I can't wait to get it off.

Anyhow back to pampering, I've never had a fake… Continue

Fake eyelashes drive me crazy

i think it just found the most comfortable eyelashes. I cant even feel them. They're Ardell Professional Self-Adhesive #110S from Sally's Beauty Supply. I have never used the self-adhesive eyelashes so i'm not sure how long they will last. We will see how long the self adhesive stays sticky.

Break-up culprit for new alopecians?

Don’t Let Depression Destroy Your Relationship

[I think sometimes we get caught up so much in our own "stuff" that we forget others want us to be vibrant, present and exciting for THEM. They often do not know what to do when WE are ocupied by thoughts, and they just bail out rather than wait, talk or admit their own feelings...especially males who are confounded by females, impatient or judgmental. This article may apply to those alopecians obsessed with and depressed…

Could pesticides trigger alopecia?

From CNN report today:

Watch out for the 2012 'Dirty Dozen'

Apples and celery are still agriculture’s dirtiest pieces of produce, according to the Environmental Working Group’s annual “Dirty Dozen” report. The report names the fruits and vegetables ranking highest in pesticide residue.

Cucumbers were added to the 2012 Dirty Dozen, while Kale and collard greens were moved from the list to join green beans in a new…

Trials and Your Happily Ever After

"The phrase “Once upon a time” promises something: a story of adventure and romance, a story of princesses and princes. It may include tales of courage, hope, and everlasting love. In many of these stories, nice overcomes mean and good overcomes evil. But perhaps most of all, I love it when we turn to the last page and our eyes reach the final lines and we see the enchanting words “And they lived happily ever after.”

"Isn’t that what we all desire: to be the heroes and heroines of our…

"Scientists tell us that without the presence of the cohesive force amongst the atoms that comprise this globe of ours, it would crumble to pieces and we would cease to exist, and even as there is cohesive force in blind matter, so must there be in all things animate, and the name for that cohesive force among animate beings is Love."
