My mind has been on alopecia and what is the best way for us to live life to the fullest while living with the condition?
I am convinced that this is more an emotional battle than a physical one.
Our struggles seem to have more to do with acceptance, will I find a mate? Will kids at school laugh at me? How do I tell my new date? Will my spouse still be attracted to me?
My thought is, if it was just physical then “slapping on” a new wig would be all we would need to do to get back to “normal” but we find that we get the new hairpiece and the fears and anxiety remain.
Am I wrong? Do you see something else? What is your best advice for handling emotional aspects of alopecia?
