I really don't know how I want to present myself at the moment. This summer I was going to work bare headed and feeling pretty positive about myself, seeing my alopecia as a quirky part of me. But now I am drawn towards my wigs again. I've been looking a lot at the dolly and Japanese Kawaii style today as I love this style and I want to present myself like that. yet at the same time I feel like a fake or that I'm not being true to myself with all that make up and wigs etc. I just feel completely at war with myself quite often and it's getting me down. It doesn't help that I have body confidence issues from having recovered (gained weight) from an eating disorder, and so am not comfortable with my body at this higher weight. 

Any words of advice or support right now would be very welcomed.

I think it is a gas that I can change my look and confidence with new styles and colors that wigs provide, without the chore of rollers, hair appointments, etc. This ability to be an actress CAN be fun, if you let it.

Thankyou for the encouragement. Today did push me more towards wigs and more makeup though, had little kids at work saying I looked like a boy, which got me down :(
