I agree with so many things that Lori said today.   I've had AU for almost 20 years now.   I too am thankful that it's not connected to cancer, that I'm not in pain or have any other autoimmune disorder, that I know of anyway, at this time.  I'm not sure I want my hair to grow back.   I have a lovely wig (less expensive than keeping up real hair and less work) and I think my real hair would be gray and thin at this time in my life, age 67.   I too believe I'm more sensitive to others' problems, especially physical ones, because of mine.  We don't have anything that God has not allowed, for a purpose!

I have often wondered if my auto immunity is the reason I don't get colds or the flu, yes suffer from allergies.  Yes, things could be worse, could be battling a life threatening disease.  In the beginning I sure had my moments where I would have preferred to have had any other disease.  Now almost 42 years later, of course I see things differently.  I am certain there is something I am to learn from this experience or help I am to give to another from my living thru this.

Alopecia and I have been together 31yrs next month!! Whew!!! What a trip! Had self esteem issues for years about appearance and am still learning to take it one day at a time!! Family and friends all know and acept it and I can talk about it and not fee threatened in a group a lil strange at times but not the heart wrenching devestation that once occurred.  I love the Lord with all my heart am thankful that this is not life threatening physically in fact the high white count makes me even less susceptible to the everyday stuff others deal with gotta love God for that blessing!! Not to say I wouldn't love for my hair to grow back and walk on with that but God has used this to grow me and help me pay more attention to other people and things I prolly would have never noticed if I had a different view.  Accepting this as GOD'S divine plan for me not the bane of my existence has been key for me in this journey. Sickness and pain physically woud be harder for me.  Think of those cancer patients who lose all their hair and feel sick and prolly scared of dying all at the same time!! WOW!! How blessed we are with just a little hair loss!!! I still cringe at those folks who don't appreciate and take care of the hair they have though!! lol Jeremiah 29:11--For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." We are not forgotten in this hair loss see just being taught trust!

When I was in college, I would attend an alopecia support group every so often. I remember one of the ladies mentioning how lucky we are to be dealing with a disease that causes us to lose our hair rather than battling a more life-threatening autoimmune disorder. That stuck with me. I struggle with my alopecia at times, yes, but I just thank God because I know it could always be worse. 

Just keep leaning and trusting in God, no matter what.

Wow, that's really inspiring. You seem to have the right attitude to faith and loss. Did you feel like God didn't cause your hairloss but was there to help you through it, or did you feel like He did cause it for reasons that you couldn't quite understand but which you trusted were loving and for the benefit of your soul?
Comment by Dorothy on December 16, 2014 at 10:10pm

Oh yes, I did not blame God or believed in him any less.  I felt then as I do now that God does not put grief in our path, but gives us the strength to go on, to lean on him for that strength.  

Comment by Dorothy on December 16, 2014 at 10:07pm

In the beginning it was not easy, but for me in the beginning I had a newborn to take care of, so I had to look outside myself and be a good mom.  Not that I did not shed tears, oh I shed lots of tears, but in the night in my husbands arms, never in front of my child, I felt I had to be strong for her.

Hi, I'm new both to alopecia and to faith. Instead of noticing hairloss and beginning to seek God, I began to look for a connection with God because of my fiancé and his faith, then I began losing buckets of hair. Personally, I struggle with this. It can be hard for me to be joyful and giving when I feel so scared and devastated. How do people feel thankful and open hearted in for/in spite of their alopecia?

Hey! New to Alopecia World and really excited to get to know others with alopecia. I have been dealing with it since I was in junior high school and now I am 23. It has been quite a journey and I have to admit that I am still not quite as comfortable with myself yet, but I know that I will be! I came to Christ about 6 years ago. Learning to see myself the way God sees me and not the way the world does!

Hello Everyone! I've had alopecia since I was 8 and I'm 20 now. I'm just now realizing I'd like to know more people in the alopecia community! I also just posted first picture without a wig so today is a lot of firsts! I've learned over the years Alopecia is a blessing from God that has made me who I am today. Just looking to talk and meet more people with Alopecia!
