"I started losing on the top sides of my head and around my ears... it also itched (my dr said she never heard of this, but I've heard plenty!) I had a biopsy and the diagnosis was confirmed. That was 15 years ago (I'm now 67 yrs old,…"

I'm a 62 year old woman who, since my alopecia areata got out of control this month, is acting like a 2 year old... I can't stop crying, I don't know what to do first, who I can talk to, who knows what I'm going through. Friends think I have a fatal disease I'm so upset... I know this won't kill me but I feel I might just die of embarrassment. This website seems like a great place to start.

Hi Susan! How are you? Haven't heard from you and hoping you've turned the corner psychologically speaking and have found a healthy way to kick alopecia's ass and let life tumble along as you kick your heels, lol. Merry Christ*mas and hope your new year starts out better..take care.
Hello and welcome, Susan,
I know how hard alopecia can be; I have had it for about 30 years. Let me know if you need help or support. One thing that you might be interested in is my book, written for women, called "If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" (It just won two national awards!) It has a lot of good info in it, it can answer many questions, and it's a fun read, too. You can find out more on my page. It's available on Amazon.com. Let me know if there's anything else I can do! I am here to help.
Hi Susan,,, glad we could chat today..you are in my prayerz and hope you find moments of peace and clarity to help you through these troubling days. Your wee grand-daughter will be so accepting of you - don't worry about that! She's head-over-heels-in-love with you already! Do something fun today and relax.
