Thank goodness for this website. I have met one other person who suffers from alopecia in my area, and she has been lucky enough to regrow almost all of her hair. She gave me a lot of hope. In the last few weeks I have continuously found new spots on my head of fresh bald patches. It has been absolutely devastating because I have tried to be so patient in the last year and a half. I know it could be so much worse, but it is so hard coping with holding out hope for something that does not pan out. I was probably a month away from being able to pull off a cutesy pixie cut and now I have to tell myself that that will not be happening. Yes, I have my health. Yes, I have my family and a roof over my head. But I want to be able to walk out of my house without a damn wig or bandana on my head. I want to look in the mirror and see myself again. Not this bald shell of a being that used to have me in it. Overly dramatic.... maybe? I am just so tired of not feeling myself. Do you guys have any tips on acceptance of this? I have dealt alright with it in the past but I am having such a problem with frustration right now.
