One of the groups on AlopeciaWorld.com is called “Use Your Difference!" and it reminds me that there are many ways you can use your alopecia to help others.
For example, right here on AlopeciaWorld.com, you can make it a habit to send a welcome note or friend request to new members or share your stories and experiences or tips that have helped you.
Even something as simple as leaving an encouraging word on a member’s page that you see is struggling can go a long way in making a positive difference.
Every day we go through experiences and find ways to make our lives with alopecia easier. Such knowledge is priceless to others who are living and coping with alopecia.
I have seen members of our beloved community find solutions to headdresses for their wedding, how to deal with bullies at their kids' schools, how to tell a date they have alopecia, and so much more.
When we share our experiences, it gives others options. Alopecia World was created for us to share our lives, and hopefully, make someone else's struggle just a little bit easier.
We all have something to contribute, so we encourage you to share your journey, too.
Start using your difference today!
