Imagine falling in love with someone but not able to love yourself. Leanna was
diagnosed with Alopecia at age 7 and by 9 years of age all her hair was gone.
Unlike some others with Alopecia by her early 20's her insecurities had a grip
on her heart.…
Hi Nakia! Thanks for the friend request. I was 7 years old when I lost my hair.. I have 3 older brothers and I was the only girl, the baby of the family with alopecia. Growing up for me was difficult. I am really excited about your film and pray it will help others!
I was tired of hiding. I felt that I should be able to wear my hair bald if I chose just as I am able to wear a wig if I chose.my soul was yelling and crying out to be free. When I finally did IT,IT was sooo liberating!
I'm still adjusting. This is only my second week.
I'm adjusting to:
The loss of my hair
Seeing myself like this
People thinking I'm sick
Not looking feminine
The right to be me without apology
At times it's a bitter sweet experience
Not sure why you are on this page if you don't have alopecia or any experience with have having to live this way. We all have stories, and with this condition face challenges every day. Please don't exploit this info.
I do think a film should be made on alopecia.It is a longtime coming and people don't.even know what it is.Yet most of us that have it where made fun of us most our lives.I would be very interested in helping to get it made so the public coyld see it.......Thanks,,,,Gary
