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…

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…

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

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…

Wendy Williams doesn't show her hair because it's thinning

Wendy doesn't show her hair because it's thinned by her thyroid disease. Wendy has always been open to the fact that she wears wigs and weaves. Just thought I would share that.

Thinking out loud

Some say "she's funny", some say "she's cool"...

I say "what do I care, even if you call me a fool"!

Some say "try colorful wigs", some say "bandanas are hot"...

I say "myaaeehh whatever... I am happy with my shiny pot"!

Some say "ooh hot stuff", "look at that baldy" some shout...

I say "forgive them Lord, they don't know what life's about"!

Some say "nice style crazy girl", some say "oh how sad"...

I say "I count my blessings... and blessed I am...…

This is the worst day I've had in a long time

This is the worst day I've had in a long time. I spent two hours in the bathroom looking at and playing with my hair to try and figure out how bad it might look in public. I know I shouldn't care. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I hate listening to my friends fuss over how they hate their hair when all I see is thick beautiful hair on their heads. My husband says I'm the only one who really notices. Maybe that's true. I wish I could just shave my head and feel like it would be socially…

Beauty is beyond what is seen

No matter what, keep your head up and all will be okay. Don't think that just because you lose your hair that you lose everything. Its more to a person than what they look like. In this world that we live in there is much to be discovered, but the best discovery is to find peace in yourself. It took me a long time to realize this, but I have, I have been feeling much better. I look in the mirror at my bald head and smile. Have alopecia is not just about losing your hair, here its about…

Sometimes I forget I have alopecia

I don’t know if it is just me, or if there is a real shift happening in the world. I just know I have not blogged lately because I really have a difficult time thinking of something to blog about.

Few things in my everyday life remind me that I have alopecia areata. I can’t remember the last time that someone asked me why I am bald. I seriously cannot think of one instance in 2012. In fact, these days I find myself looking for opportunities to share.

My husband saw a woman with…
