You can call me Taylor :) I'm 17 years old (senior YAY) and loving every minute of it! I've had alopecia areata since I was 6 years old. I tried as hard as I could to hide it from everyone because I didn't want them to think of me as "different". Well, about a year ago, I started to get another outbreak and now it's the worst it's ever been. But, this time, I never try to hide it because of what others will think. But on February 13, 2010, I stood up in front of 200 people and told them that I have alopeca. They stood, clapped, and i swear everyone hugged me. It was the greatest day of my life because for once, my alopecia didnt feel like a disease, it felt like a gift.
sorry it took me so long to reply back to you i had forgot my password and email address how are you doing today??? i noticed my alopecia is coming back in the front of my head my hair is begining to thin.. not cool tomorrow im going to call the dr to see about the steriods last time i took the steriods i had a very fast recovery hopefulli its the same this time.- talk to you soon nicole
Hahahahaha, I guess I had a blonde moment then! ;)
Anyways, so like, whenever I'm out shopping and see cute hairbows I usually just buy them and break off the actualy hair clip, so it's just the bow. Or sometimes when I'm feeling crafty I will sit down and actually make them.
Also: yay for not wearing wigs. I've never worn one in my life.
Of course I most certainly go to school like that!
The day I stopped caring what other people think is the day my life changed for the better.
People can say what they want, but they've learned not to anymore because they know I honestly, truly, 100% do not care what they think. All that matters is that I'm happy.
Anywho, that was my little ramble. Hahaha
Haha! Nope, I use double sided tape.
It's called "Fashion Tape" and is supposed to be used to keep dresses in place and stuff like that. It works much better for head bows :)
Anddd I used to use fake eyelashes, but mine casually grew back :S
Now I use double extend mascara so they look longer.
But when I did use fake eyelashes I paid like 15$ for them at Shoppers Drug Mart.
