When my first patch of hair fell out, I was horrified. I had never heard of Alopecia until that time. I later found out that my father lost his hair due to alopecia by the time he was about 35 years old. I didn't begin loosing mine until I was about 45. I am now 55 and going thorough the worst hair loss I have ever experienced. I go back and forth between worry, anger and acceptance. Sometimes I wish it would hurry up and all fall out so I won't have to worry any more. I think about shaving, wigs, or seeing a dermatologist to see if there is any new treatment.

Tonight, I am trying acceptance! If my hair all falls out, so be it. As my daughter said, "you will totally rock the bald, mom!"
