Well... I shaved my head again. I was a little sad about it, but I feel like it's all for the best.  Whenever I shave my head and go back to wearing wigs I feel that I'm taking back control.  It's the way I cope with alopecia. I hate that when my hair tries to grow, another spot forms.  I decided I didn't want to deal with it anymore. So right now I'm back to wearing my wigs. 

Earlier I was thinking about how much things have changed over the past few years.  Last year I started taking pictures without my wig on.   and earlier this year I took off my wig around some of my friends. That was a huge step for me even though they knew about my wig.  I'm happy that I'm becoming more comfortable about my alopecia. It took a long time for me to get to where I am.  

I guess that's all I have to say for now. I just wanted to update everyone on what's going on with me.  I hope you are all doing well. ♥ Mackenzie

Congrats on taking your power back Mackenzie.  Alopecia controlled me for years, had me felling ashamed and embarrassed about my situation.  It can really dull your shine.  Taking your wig off in front of others or even taking pics without it is a huge step and an indication that your self esteem is still healthy and intact.  I suspect that you will continue to gain comfort and confidence to go wig-less and more. . .  Great for you hun!  :-)
