lauralcharles replied to pippinsgirl's discussion How to accept being ugly
"Beauty is subjective, and that's the point of the 'Bald is Beautiful' campaigning. Just because one person thinks something is beautiful doesn't mean another will. I don't think you are wrong, but you should be open-minded…"

lauralcharles replied to Heather Bloom's discussion Has anyone quit their job because of alopecia?
"I haven't quit my job but I get where you're coming from. I really didn't like being talked about either, but I found a charity in the UK called Changing Faces which helps people with drastic appearance issues (massive scarring and…"

lauralcharles replied to Lilac's discussion Has alopecia changed you in a way? Your personality? Your character?
"I have had a very similar experience. I was very traditionally pretty before I lost my hair and SO VAIN. Now I have fun with my look and don't let my hair worry me much at all really. I grew most of it back but when it fell out I wore some…"

lauralcharles replied to Epo's discussion Hair shedding
"I get loads of hair loss when I get new patches, but for me it is always falling out and then regrowing. I always have roots but sometimes they lose their colour so maybe that's why you don't see them? Try minoxidil or steroid injections…"

lauralcharles replied to helpingMYsister's discussion How did your friends take you telling them you had alopecia?
"BE BRAVE! I really think I needed my friends to help get me through, and like some other people here I felt less stress pretending like I had all my hair... It really meant the world to me. I told anyone and everyone about it (when it came up - and…"

lauralcharles commented on Jackie's blog post Acceptance
"Wow, I completely relate! I've had the same experience although I pretty much reached out to my friends and family as soon as I developed alopecia (2 years ago). I think it's super important to have that support around you in order to cope…"

lauralcharles commented on babylums's blog post How to tell your child about alopecia?
"I don't know what this situation is like, whether I will ever be faced with it, or exactly how I would deal with it. But I know that if it happened to me I would lead by example, as Wisel suggested, as I think the most important thing for your…"

lauralcharles replied to robin's discussion Can you laugh at being bald?
"I think that's great! I've only had alopecia for a couple of years and feel like I can laugh about it now. I recently had a friend crack a joke about it though and I FREAKED OUT - I started shaking and crying.and had to run to the bathroom…"

lauralcharles replied to holyhairlossbatman!!'s discussion Is it better or worse when you finally shave your head?
"I have seen some really cute sleep hats on different head wrap sites. You could get something in a nice fabric that would feel good. I decided from the start that I would not cover my head at home. Granted, I don't have children, but I do have…"

About Me:
Just been diagnosed with alopecia areata and am having a hard time. I have lost more than most who have the disease and am teaching myself to tie turbans in creative ways!

I have a very supportive family, a great group of friends, and a husband who loves me no matter how I look. But despite all this I do still feel as though they don't really understand what I am going through. Hence my joining this site.

I'm trying to stay positive and am running a 10k for Alopecia UK on 10 July. You can sponsor me here:
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?
