Hi Pam - wow, I am proud of you and your tweet!  Glad to see the comment made by Dove :)

I caught a segment of the Today Show this morning doing an experiment to see the difference in the impact of curly hair and straight hair. They said be sure to tweet a picture...so I did. So far I've gotten a response from the Dove company. 

Please check this out and any of you who would like to add your thoughts or tweet your picture to the Today Show - this is a fun opportunity to make our presence known. Also, please share the link on your fb page and/or retweet the tweet - Everything we can do to get the message out to our bald community.

Happy 2015 everyone. Thanks for all the encouragement, you made it easier. We continue to fight despite the losses and what we have gone through.

Hi again GG,

That's a fair point - I'd agree I find myself sometimes making assumptions about how well other people are doing - knowing full well I have no knowledge of what they may or may not be going through personally. Alopecia being such a visible thing.... it's easy to let it dominate - whereas as you say there are graces in our lives that deserve attention and thanks.

Your observations are helpful and I thank you for them. 

Now that I can be sure you've made it 2015 I wish you and your's all the best!

Peter :)

Peter,

Happy New Year..though not quite ye here in the Philadelphia, PA USA area.  We took our daughter out for her birthday and I found myself feeling a bit envious of all the merrymakers, knowing I was headed home to TV..At a vulnerable moment, it's easy to slip into the belief everybody has a richer, fuller or happier life than me.  Then I remembered something I heard once, ...in those times, reflect on what you're grateful for..it helped lessen my funk....hope it helps you!

GG

Hi Garden Girl,

Thank you - and you are 100% right! Onwards and upwards :)

Happy New Year!

Hi Peter,

One good thing about saying good bye to a year filled with losses...you're saying goodbye to it!

Hang in there and know you are not alone,

Garden Girl

Hi everyone - first post. AA started a couple of years ago with a small patch behind my ear. In march this year my scalp hair started falling out at a ballistic rate so I shaved it off. Since July all my hair has gone... eyebrows, eyelashes, nose hair. I have a few stayers on my shins so they haven't got the message apparently :) Anyways - seasons greetings to everyone - I'm saying goodbye to a year filled with loss - hair, confidence and sadly the beginning of the end of a 10 year marriage. Lastly thanks to everyone who posts their experiences on here - as a quiet observer it helps during harder days. Peter
