do u now a good dentist?

"Funny photo)) However, it made me think. I know many people who are afraid to go to the dentist. This causes a cascade of problems later. My brother was like that. His phobia was from a deep childhood, but he could cope with it after reading hope…"

Hair is growing and we did NOTHING!

Posted on July 25, 2010 at 1:43am 1 Comment

So as some of you may know Mikey started his hair loss journey on oct 16th 2009. By feb 10 he had lost most of it by mid april '10 he had lost all of his long beautiful hair with the exception of his giraffe patch which he still has. Some of you may recall we only did topical steroid ointment for no more than 2 months then decided to let alopecia runs its course. now all of a sudden beginning in mid june he started to grow hair. It isnt alot but hell its growing!! yes its patchy and some is… Continue

Regrowth

Posted on March 1, 2010 at 11:10pm 2 Comments

Hi everyone! Im quite curious as to how many children have regrowth and at what rate? and how often does it regrow just to fall out again? Mikey began losing his hair in october 2009 and recently has begun to show white hair regrowth. The dr said Mikey would have his hair regrow but didnt gurantee the cycle wouldnt repeat itself. Which of course is my biggest concern. Just wondering whats headed our way!! Mikey often talks about geting his big hair back, and we just shaved his head on Feb 8,…

Hi Jackie! We are doing good, we had him in for pictures yesterday. I wanted one last one when he still had a decent amount of hair. Looks like the top is progressing much faster than I had thought it would. One day at a time. : ) How is Mikey doing?
I see from comments below that you are worried about pre school, you're not alone. I was so excited for him till this hit. Now I'm terrifiied. But I agree with April the kids will not even notice too much it's the parents. I plan on having a talk with the school prior to starting. Hope you have a great rest of the week! Here in WI we are just happy the weather has been around a steady 50! Brayden loves getting outside to play now. Talk soon!

Hi Jackie! Let Mikey go to pre-school. He will enjoy it. It's not the kids you have to worry about, it's parents. Kids at that age don't pay any attention to him not having hair. We had a good experience with both pre-school and now kindergarten. Kids doesn't seem to mind that Logan doesn't have any hair. At that age, they really don't notice difference much. I worry about 2cd grade! That's my fear lol Logan's head in the summer got burnt only once. He will not wear a hat EVER so I'm not sure about the fungus part. Use spf 30 on really sunny days. When it does tan, it looks so much better. Logan's hair came out in patches first, grew back (took over a year) came out in patches again, then grew back, next time the entire right side of his hair almost came out. Grew back, THEN lol he looked like a old man with no hair on top. That's when I shaved it. Looks better now. Just today I had to go to school with a parent teacher conference. Well, Logan is have a hard time pronouncing his th sounds. So for third he says fird with a f, so they want to work with him on speaking. The speech therapist was in there and also the school psychologist it's mandatory everyone with a degree be there I think lol anyways she looked at me and said I don't hink I've laid eyes on your child, the speech person said yeah you have he's the bald kid! Now mind you a year ago I'd have punched her in the face, but I looked and said there's a reason he's bald, he has Alopecia. Then, the what's that came rolling, I explained, they sat there looking at me like I'm a alien! She said oh I thought you just shaved his head.....I said well, that's what's wrong with this world everyone makes assumptions...know what that means don't ya?? Makes a ass outta you and me.. I gave her the website and told her to do research on it she couldn't even spell it lmao!! It really didn't make me mad just irritated...so prepare yourself ppl are stupid and you will find this out. LOOK OUT FOR ADULTS! THEY'RE STUPID LOL!!

Jackie you and I sound so much alike! It's been 4 years since Logan's first spots appeared and I still cry! Not as much as I did, but I still do at times. We still get looks, questions, and of course stares, but, I'm not as ill towards ppl as I use to be. I had to pray really hard to be able to cope and God helped me. If it wasn't for him, I'd be so lost and weak. I love my crazy life too and I'm sure your a lot like me and your a mover and a shaker as well. No sense in hiding, get out and live! There is noone here in my small little hick town that knows what Alopecia is. So, I do a lot of explaining lol I hated it at first, hated knowing that my child was different and had a condition. But all is well know. How are you all doing? How is Mikey's hair coming along??

I feel the same way as you do, FINALLY I've found someone to talk to that is going through the same thing as I am. Nobody can relate to me noone. I am use to being in control to but this is like a rollercoaster that don't let you off. You just don't know what to expect. I wish I could tell you your son's hair will grow back and stay, but, like you said, we just don't know. One thing we do know is our son's are beautiful on the inside and out and they will be no matter what! It is just hair after all. Thank God it's not their health. I ask myself all the time, April, why can't you get past the appearance issues? I can and I think I've done well, but there's still some people that just get under my skin!

Thank you Jackie for your kind comment. Tell your little boy hi from my son Logan. Ya know, I do take my son EVERYWHERE and I mean that in every sense of the word. His dad is a truck driver and we've been many places. You should hear the questions we get asked. What gets me is older people, they get tears in thier eyes when they look at him and say awww bless his heart.....I then tell them he's not sick and then go into my spill. That doesn't bother me what so ever. It's the pointing, and whispering I can live without. So did your son's alopecia develop rapidly?
