i wish i had had a support such as this when i got alopecia 25 years ago. i was scared, embaraassed, and there really was no where to turn. i was only 28, single, and didn't know how to tell my dates about my condition so i just preteneded it wasn't happening.
i went to a therapist and he told me i needed to explore my relationship with my mother to better understand why i was losing my hair! ugh! i am so thankful that we have so much information, support, and technology these days so that we can all talk amongst ourselves, attend seminars and support groups, and wear beautiful naturual looking hair pieces if we choose to! i love you all out there and i hope we all can be there for each other in times of need! paula

I've only been apart of Alopecia World for a short time but to me it's a place where I can get some information on AA (and all Alopecia types) from those who have it (and have had it many years). It's a place where I can get support from other mom's who have Kids with Alopecia and are feeling the same as I am and also from the rest of the AW members.

If it wasn't for Alopecia World, I don't know if I ever would have been able to find the inspiration to start my local support group. Thank You!

Alopecia World means sooo much to me. I am so grateful to have found this website right away when I was diagnosed. Because of this website I was able to learn so much from real people...rather than just reading facts (and some fiction) on other websites. Because of this I was able to accept my condition very very quickly and for that I am so grateful. I tell everyone I meet about this website. This website has also allowed me the opportunity to create a group for those in Chicagoland which in turn has allowed me to meet others with Alopecia in my area. I can't say enough. Thank you!

Thank you Richard and Cheryl for honouring me, by quoting me, and I'm so glad many agree how much a god send this site is for so many. I've had alopecia for almost 4o yrs, and some days, yes it bothers me. It's wonderful to know, we are not alone. I said to my husband yesturday, How I wish, Alopecia World was around years ago, how much it would have impacted my life. I am so grateful, you'se made this site, for all of us. Brightest of Blessings to all.
