Hi my name is Rayna and I was diagnosed with Alopecia 2 days ago. I have a 22 yr old daughter,a 17 yr old son,a 17 yr old adopted son & two handsome grandsons. I am a widow as of 2011. I was married for 25 years to my high school sweetheart. I was a stay at home mom from 1991-2011. I was very blessed to be able to that for my children.
Hi Rayna, I also shaved my head recently and have decided to go with it. You're right, it is hard sometimes, but feels easier for me than a wig, hat or scarf. I get the raised red bumps, but sometimes think it's hair trying to push through because I get them in places where it's already bald.
