About Me:
I'm 18 years old and am dealing with hairloss and quite frankly, i'm terrified. I'm terrified of constant judgement, I'm scared because my hair has always been like a security thing for me. It's hard to stay strong. I don't have that great of a support system. I have one person and that is my big sister who lives in South Africa, and even she has a hard time with helping me cope:/ I've yet to find good in this but i'm sure I will. I wish there was a cure. But I guess I was given this for a reason and being strong is the only choice I really have. alright, enough complaining, I'm going to take this challenge head on and run the full course of this journey. with God by my side, I can conquer anything.

Hi Miss Rachel! Good morning! I see you're playing with some wig choices! Good for you! I am doing the same. Two of mine arrived early last week...one short, one long. The short absolutely will not work. I have discovered that I have a rather small head. Who knew?=0) The long one fits well, but I always seem to need time to get acquainted with a new wig. We kind of dance around each other for a minute until I feel she's right for me and can be styled into submission! Curious about life in South Africa! Are you a native? Share!!!

Hi Rachel-
I'm just great! I'm sorry to have missed your message earlier. Hope your day was a good one!

Hi Rachael-
I love your pictures! You are adorable. It breaks my heart to see someone so much younger than me losing their hair. It's hard enough but being young i think would be a whole different challenge. My hair loss didn't start until i was 53-54 and now at 58 i am universalis. I hate it but have somehow learned to deal with it. Having a good human hair wig helps alot. If you can afford one i suggest Freedom Hair in New Zealand.
If you ever have any questions or want to talk - just buzz me here on alopecia world.
You have lots of friends here that totally understand. Love, Leslie

Hi Miss Rachel!
Thank you for your friend request. I am happy to get to know you and others going through the same issues. You can not only get through this with God, but you can conquer the fear and discomfort of this...and in style!!! Your blonde haircut was so cute! There are endless wig choices and funky styles out there that you can rock...and not look back! Rock the bald...rock a wig! Your confidence isn't based on your hair, but in who we were created to be, with hair or without! It's about what's going on inside of you! Have a great rest of the day! Let's talk again soon.
