I haven't so many beautiful bald people like this ever!!!! This is a big deal to me because people, especially in my own family would have me believe that I should be ashamed of what has happened to me, or my appearance for that matter. I would never forget when a relative said to me, "how can you be bald and be a stylist? I wouldn't let you touch my head!". but I didn't let that jerk the benefit of beliving anything he had to say and I'm glad I wasn't wrong! Just seeing you all makes me feel… Continue

March Boy 2008

I am still getting used to living in Prince George. I live in an awesome apartment, though am behind on my rent until at least Friday, I've had my ups and downs, had people steal a lot of stuff rom me in the past couple of years due to my overwhelming good nature, contributed a lot to local area businesses with websites and awesome presentations, I ran for Mayor, been elected President to a great First Nation society that is helping children, and met my aunts and uncles who've been pointing me… Continue

My Story

So I figured I'd write a quick blog detailing my history with Alopecia since I didn't feel like writing all that in the "about me" section.

Alopecia runs in my family. My younger sister developed AA when she was 4, had a couple bald spots and then it all grew back. She's now 23 and hasn't lost any hair since. I first lost my hair at age 12 right before I began 7th grade and in a matter of 6 months went from AA to AU. I was completely bald till somewhere towards the end of 9th grade. I was… Continue

More about me!!!

I'm a walking contradiction of sorts. When I was growing up, I was very comfortable with my alopecia, and got to the point that I would voluntarily shave my hair because I liked the weightlessness and comfort of not having to do my hair every day. However, I have noticed that especially in the last 3 years that I range more from occasional bouts of self-pity to just being all out enraged about the fact that I am 30 years old and I am still dealing with alopecia. Every time I start a new job, or… Continue

So, we received the finally clips and wig tape for my daughter's wig. Now, we are just waiting until tomorrow to get her wig styled. She is so excited, and so am I. It took a lot to decide on the wig route, and now that it's here we are barely able to sit still. I think this route is going to be great, because regardless of what happens, she can feel confident in her wig, until she is ready to take it off. I hope that that day comes where she is not intimidated by others, or her self. I think… Continue

Does Music Soothe the Savage Beast??

I got the idea of this blog from RJ -- he has a really cool playlist on his page, if anyone likes to check it out. I love music. There are some really great songs out there that just move my spirit and send chills down my spine with the emotion and power that they make me feel. Like RJ, I love old school slow jams, but I am a REAL eclectic type person, and my idea of some real good slow jams includes some awesome tracks by the Eagles, Patsy Cline, Pink Floyd, the Police, Madonna, you name it.… Continue

More interesting than your alopecia

When I think of my fiancée, Cheryl Carvery, I don’t think of alopecia areata.

I think of a friend that sticks closer than any sibling; a compassionate person whose heart and life are wide open to other alopecians and who volunteers at a veterans’ hospital; a fun and inquisitive person who loves to travel and workout; a phenomenal woman who showers me with such sweet affection that I call it “addictive love.”

Kindergarten is approaching...

It's March rigth now, and my twins are going to begin Knidergarten in August. I'm a stay at home mom, so they don't have a class or close peers right now, and I am completely nervous about Della beginning kindergarten. I don't want her to be teased. I have thought hard a trough about a wig, and finally we have decided to get her one, for the time being anyways. We do the styling on Thursday, and she is really excited, I am just not sure if I can handle it. All of the care and maintenance of a… Continue

what beautiful people!

I had started writing a long, in depth exploration of several issues I have been thinking about since I joined Alopecia World over the weekend. My plan was to post it here, and for it to be insightful and interesting. It was going to include a social and psychological commentary on identity, beauty, and acceptance (or the struggle for it). I have the blog entry saved, and hope to rework it and post it at some point. I think it has potential :). was simply taking too long to get out on… Continue

The Day

5 years later, I can still remember every moment of the day I had my head shaved. From walking into the salon... watching it happen, getting that first look on the street and finally going home to my wife.
It was the start of my acceptance and the end of the old me. It was a great day and a horrible day.
The people that were there for me will never be forgotten.

Learning from My Children

Tonight, while putting Nnea to sleep, she asked me to stay and cuddle for a minute 'on her pillow'. I thought I'd share our conversation...

"Mom, can you stay a yiddle bit?"

"No, Sweetie. You need to go to sleep now."

"Pease? Just one cuddle on my pillow???" (??? denotes this little high pitched thing she does at the end of her questions)

"Alright. Just for a minute..."

"Sanks, Mom." Nnea then starts to caress my face and cheeks. She says… Continue

Another new blog to maintain!

Well, I am a writer of sorts, if you've been reading and browsing along this site. I have jumped into this site feet first and I feel more at home sharing things here regarding my hair loss than I have anywhere ever.

Teach Your Children Well; An Alopecian in the World, Still.

I went on vacation. I was lucky. My Aunt put together a family reunion cruise. A cruise to Bermuda. A 5-day cruise. I roomed with my twin sister, which is an extra bonus - sister time together.

This was my first cruise. We boarded and went through customs, and met up in the dining room for lunch. It was served buffet style. I've never seen so much food in my life. I was sitting at the table as all of the family met up.

A table next to us, a large family with about 4… Continue
