It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
Sometimes I try to understand where they are coming from and why they are asking because they don’t know what it’s like to go through anything like this or know how it feels to be judged. But on the other hand, I was raised to never look at someone as different no matter what and I think having alopecia has also helped that due to the fact that we DO know what it’s like so we would never want to put someone in a similar situation that we fear. This site has been nothing but helpful in getting things off my chest and talking with others who understand so thank you!
I think many of us have been asked if we have cancer, but I think the oddest 'call-out' I've gotten was someone asking me if i was in a car accident or had brain surgery. I think its normal to get upset, and useless to deny that that's your true feeling about the situation. What matters is can you move past that, and not dwell in it. The fact that you're able to regroup is great. I think people that say they don't get upset about it are probably kidding themselves, or maybe what they really mean is they don't STAY upset about it, which I can relate to much better.
Brain surgery? Car accident?
Wow... people can be harsh man.
People in general don't realize the impact of their words.
