I was diagnosed with AA about 8 years ago. I didn't think too much about it because the bald spots always grew back and were small enough to cover up with my own hair. It wasn't until about two years ago that it advanced to AT when all the hair on my head fell out over the course of a couple months and then AU just about one year ago when the hairs on my body fell out as well.
It has been aggravating trying to figure out this strange condition and does contribute to a bit of insecurity, but I think it has also made me a stronger, more optimistic person. After all, it is only hair, and I am a healthy, happy person and that is what matters!
Even though I have lived in the same area all my life, I love to travel and definitely have the travel bug in me! I enjoy my job as a sonographer and I have wonderful friends, family, and coworkers who help me to focus on the important things in life.
that's really cool that you have found a boutique that you trust and love. I only have synthetic at the moment as I'm still not sure if I'm willing to splash out more money on real hair wigs. But we will see. :) i'm just starting to get into getting different wigs and I have 3 more arriving soon and I can't wait for them to get here so that I can try them on!
Kerry, thanks so much for the referral- hoping for a turnaround but if not, I'm glad to have a contact- everyone seems happy after doing their brows.
That is really interesting about revitalash. All the medical studies came up with zilch on bimatropost. I lost a few lashes once and got my derm to give me a Rx for Lumigan after 8 months of them not returning. Literally the next day (before filing the Rx), my eyes got red and all my lashes grew back! So I didnt fill it, but maybe I will see if I still have it. I just started Restasis to see that helps. I read of people using topical cyclosporine to regrow from AT and Restasis is optical cyclosporine, so I am seeing what happens. Probably will give it a change and if not try lumigan or revitalash.
So you arent AU or you got your lashes back solely from revitalash? This is so interesting!
