"I say go for it! I am starting to veer towards doing it myself- the more I am reading the posts here and other stories online, I think about getting it cut short and having a couple of wigs for when I want "hair" I am so very tired of…"
"I also got steroid injection treatments about 5-6 different times, but to be honest I have no idea if it slowed the progression down or not and eventually I started worrying about the thinning of the skin and possible "dents or hollows"…"
"I am so sorry that you are here with us, this disease just seems to suck the self esteem out of you doesn't it? I have also been to Lucinda Ellery's here in NYC, it is an option, a great option actually and several ladies here have the…"
"I had looked into getting just the side pieces from Lucinda Ellery- they would have been taped in, but the problem is (for me anyway) that it would be too much hair and would look out of place with the rest of my hair, I would end up looking out of…"
"Haha thank you Denise, you are the best at making me feel better about this stupid FFA! I will wallow a bit this morning while I am getting ready for the day and trying to arrange my hair yet again and then it is off to the gym :-)
"Good luck with your eyebrows AnnieMay! I am thinking getting my eyebrows done will also my next step, I tint them myself once a week or so, (they are naturally blond) but they are taking longer and longer to fill in with pencil and powder and…"
"Right there with you AnnieMay, every morning seems like a bad hair day now- what used to take no time at all for me to get ready now seems to take for-EVER. I still have eyebrows (barely, but they are still there) so that takes time to pencil…"

"Yes, Yes! The itchiness is nightmarishly bad for me- I just had itch episode the other day and still have the scratch marks (from where I've actually drawn blood from itching to make it go away) it is that bad. It is on my forearms, mostly my…"
"I just ordered the Uniwig Claire Remy 5.5 inch topper, Having the 25% off discount until April 16 it made it well worth it for me as it is a lot under $200, so I got myself a little wig stand and extra clips and upgraded the shipping while I…"
"I agree! Granted, I am only about 2.5/3 hours away from NYC- but it is not so simple to get into the middle of Manhattan every 6-8 weeks for the needed maintenance and with the travel expenses of either driving and paying for tolls/gas/parking…"
