welcome to our world, jada—where we already know:  1) yes, it does hurt sometimes—so we’re here for you if you need us, but 2) it makes us so much more aware that what’s important is on the inside.

Love over fear, baby!!

Hi Jada welcome.

I feel your pain x10. As a alpha male I was changed in a matter of 3 months when I lost ever single hair upon my complete body. I was in shock when I lost my identity.

I can only except how my immune system targeted my hair follicles. Please feel free to text me at anytime. Danny 925-807-9773

So sorry Jada has to go through this.  But the more celebrities who get this and go public with it, the better chance we have of Big Pharma developing better treatments and even a cure.  It also means insurance companies will be pressured to pay for treatment, wigs, etc.

Hey Jada.  Welcome.  We are strong

Hopefully, Jada will use her celebrity status to advocate for better treatment and a cure.  So many times when a celebrity has some problem, they turn it into a fashion statement, etc.  Alopecia Universalis is not a fashion statement.  It is a real disease.  Hopefully, she will treat it as such.  We could use her help and support towards treatment.

Jada, You are beautiful, with or without hair!  Thankful for people who are well known, to be able to come out with their condition, to help educate the world.  Thank you!

Agreed, Kimberly.  I am tired of people treating our disease (yes, it is a DISEASE) as though it is a "less-than" disease.  I would be a wealthy woman if I had a dime for every time someone has said to me, "It's only hair".  Of course, these are the same people who are obsessed with their own hair and spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, on their hair.  Frankly, I don't tolerate those comments any more.  I let people know that it is no more acceptable to make those comments to me than it would be to say to a eczema, a psoriasis, or burn victim, "Oh, it's only skin".
