Sometimes when I'm alone I just go about my day then I will go to the bathroom and look in the mirror or pass by my reflecton on a picture frame and I realize that I'm bald. I forget a lot because it's not something that runs through my mind 24/7.It's a small part of who I am but alopecia is not how I define my self. It's something I have, like my freckles or the fact that I wear glasses. Being bald isn't somthing you should veiw as a burden, because it's who you are. You should love yourself for your freckles, bald spots and any other wonderful part of you.
