Hello everyone.
I'm 65 years old and have had Alopecia Totalis since I was a child. It's lovely to see how you support each other through your Alopecia. I had nobody with my condition to talk to as I grew up. My family has always been wonderful but they didn't really understand how I felt. My hair has regrown but I worry about my grandaughters getting it because my father told me that my great grandfather was completely bald at a very young age (I don't suppose they knew what it was then). I have asked my doctor if I could be a guinea pig for any research on the subject but he said he didn't know of any. I have had 3 regrowths each time while I was pregnant with my 3 sons but the hair fell out after the births.

I made a mistake when I said my hair has regrown now.

It's lovely to keep in touch on this page but really, after all this time I don't have any bad feelings about having alopecia. I have a loving family and friends and I realise now that that's all that really matters. I know from experience that it's hard when you're young but as you grow older it matters less.
