Today marks the 1 year anniversary of when my daughter's hair started falling out. She told me this yesterday and wanted to contact some of the friends that helped her the most last year. She lost all of her beautiful waist lenth hair in 2 weeks. She was a highschool senior. She continued to cheer, party, do well in school and live a normal life. I shed alot of tears and have bought 8 wigs from all different makers and spent hours researching the disease. This site helped so much. Her boyfriend that was a lifeline last year broke up with her just before college. She again picked herself up and is trying to move on. She is on sulfasalazine and is experiencing a small amount of regrowth, we will see. The point that I want to make is that you have to accept what you cannot change and move on. Don't let this condition control your life. She inspires me.
