Global Warming in Prince George Day

So this morning I woke up with a little rain, then beautiful radiant sun shine for a few hours, a bit of hail fell out of the sky for a little while, then beautiful rays of sun shine, then a sprinkle of snow for a little while, and a hot sunset... last night the building was humming off its foundation with hardcore wind... and now the lights are clearly twinkling over the City as folks get ready for bed... Such is life in Prince George, British columbia! Tomorrow morning I expect a bank of fog… Continue

Taking a Moment to Play

My hands are shaking as I try to type this blog post. Not because I'm upset or scared about anything, but because I'm elated. I've just finished an impromptu dance party with my girls, and I'm exhausted. I was surfing this site, and decided to let my playlist run through all 16 songs. The three of us turned it up loud, crammed into the tiny computer room, and danced ourselves silly. I'm so glad that we had time to be crazy together! I'm so glad that I took the time to be crazy with… Continue

Have you hear about Rio Hair? It happened in the USA back in the early 90's...

My first encounter with Alopecia was back in 1993 when I was dying my hair and perming my hair like crazy. And I got a brillant idea to try this crap I saw on a late night info-mercial about a hair care product call “Rio Hair”, it was suppose to be an all natural product to relax curly hair. Yeah well, silly me bought into that “infomercial” and purchased a kit. I put this “all natural stuff from Brazil” in my hair and guess what happened...



The spots started a few days later and I… Continue

Random Stuff about Me

So,



I'm currently sitting at work - on what should be a wonderfully long easter weekend - however - I am instead spending my time in an un-airconditioned office, waiting for some people to complete their work so I can do mine. Yay.

Lol - enough of the complaining - it has however given me the time to make my first blog post ever.



I heard of this site from my friend (and leader of the Queensland Alopecia Areata Support Associate) Angela, and thought - wow - I must… Continue

Something not hair-related!!

I'm a very happy person right now!!! Why, do you ask?? Because today I conducted my first training class at work!!! I have always been an unofficial trainer of sorts on every job that I have had. I have mentored new employees and taught them the most detail-oriented, efficient way to do the job that I am in and I have always done an excellent job of it. However, today was the first day that the training department actually asked me to conduct a training class on an application that we use… Continue

A quick overview of my early experience with alopecia

My name is Nicole and I have been living with alopecia since 2005. It started falling out in the Spring of ‘05 and by December of ‘05 I was completely bald and all my eyelashes and eyebrows had fallen out. I was devastated. I had grown up as “the girl with a ton of hair” my mom had always joked I had enough hair for ten people. So when my hair started falling out I felt like I was losing a huge part of myself. I remember when I developed several bald spots and had lost about 70% of my hair…

How/When My Alopecia started (a long one...)

Hello My Shining Ones :-)



I also just posted a video that shares some of this same *long* story....if you'd rather watch than read :-)



In my first blog I said I would share "how/when" my Alopecia started as the story has unraveled itself to me slowly over the years! When I was 7 or 8 years old I realized I was somehow meant to "travel the world, meet my brothers and sisters and spread the message of love." Yes, perhaps an odd thought for a child, but it was something that… Continue

Just some thoughts

So as I put in my about me I am 23 years old, I got or developed or whatever you want to call it , AU when I was 15.. within a few months it was all gone, thinning evenly all over my head and soon to follow my eyelashes, eybrows and everything quit growing. Anyway the day I was actually diagnosed with Alopecia I bawled, cried and cried forever, I loved my hair, I was a 15 year old girl so of course I did! Anyway after that first day I got better and better and accepted it more and more,… Continue

Enough all ready...!!!

It's been three days and she isn't liking her wig much anymore. It is really bothering her that the hair is always in her face. She wants the hair but it's just too much for her. She can't get past that. I don't know what to do. I want to protect her, and I love her with out it, but she is uncomfortable in her own skin, and behind this mess of hair. She was crying to me today when she put it on after I washed it, again. She misses being able to put hair ties in her hair, and wearing a pony… Continue

Della's Wig.

To my surprise she loves it, and I miss her. I was so used to seeing her face. I posted her new pictures. I think it is too thick. HAHA first I complain about her not having enough hair and now it's too much. I am a picky, picky person.

I'll let my head speak for itself

I had an interesting thing happen to me last night. I was out with my partner, Phil, and an old friend of mine, and we started talking about relationships. My partner and I started the conversation by talking about how we argue often and can both be difficult people at times - he has his reasons, I have mine. Then my friend joined in and started telling Phil that there's no way that I can be that difficult, because a) I come from a really supportive family, and b) I've never had to deal with… Continue

The car ride from hell!!!

Ok, so I was in a car wreck last week and tore up the front end of my brand new PT Cruiser and I found out in the process when I got arrested that my drivers license was suspended (plus I was riding dirty with expired tags -- not my fault; the bank in Georgia wouldn't send me my title to TN so I could get my tags here.) Now I've been forced to take a day off to ride to Atlanta with my sister (who is a police officer, go figure :) ) to get my tags and get my license reinstated. She is only… Continue
