An Alopecia support organization for women is launching soon in the Greater Philadelphia Area.  If you are interested and/or would like additional information the website is www.versida.org.

Congrats Barbara!  Fear often keeps us in a holding pattern, but once we get past it whatever it may be we discover we are more resilient than we thought we were. You should feel proud.  Enjoy your new found freedom!!

I am so proud of myself! I shaved my head myself for the first time even though I was apprehensive. It is so liberating when you succeed at something you are afraid to do.

I have had LPP for almost 2 years.  My head is very patchy and on March 31 I started shaving it.  I have been more at peace with it ever since because I am longer feel the need to look at my head all the time.

I sported the bald look first back in 2006. This time I have been bald since June. My alopecia was again progressing, and it was getting too hot for wig, so I decided shaving my head was best for me. I do wear baseball caps sometimes, between shaves, because I have a large circular spot area that is extremely noticeable, after just a couple of days. I do like to change up my look, from time to time, so once the weather cools down, you may see me rock a wig, occasionally. I also wear African attire periodically with wraps.

This group has reminded me of the quote, "...as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

The light you ladies shine has really inspired me.  I am working towards being bald in public full time.  I feel most "myself" like this at home and I hope this translates to the same feeling in public.  I don't care for wigs, hats and scarves.  I am wondering, how many of you are still active on AW and are bald full time?

Hi Cheryl,
Everyone has been very supportive. I don't really get that many stares, mostly from kids, but they're just curious. Some people that I don't know come up and ask questions, I like that. It makes things easier and more clear. I don't want people to feel sorry for me or think that I'm going through chemo. I want to say that i'm fine, it's just hair loss.

Hi everyone....just joined your group and this is my first "comment" since becoming a member of AW. I am 63 and developed AA in November that appears  to be progressing to AU. After several months of depression, crying and a wide range of emotions, I have come to a place of peace and acceptance with the hair loss. But I was tired of hair everywhere except on my head so I made the decision about two weeks ago to shave.  I agree with Debbie's comments of January 2014...."Shaving my head was the most freeing thing I have ever done".  I also wear a wig to work, and will continue to do so, but beginning to free more comfortable with "nothing at all" on my hairless head especially at home and around my rural neighborhood. Thanks for all the comments and encouragement to all. Madge

Hi Vicki,  I am curious to know how your family reacted to you shaving your head.
