2016 My New Story

Posted on June 7, 2016 at 2:05pm 0 Comments

I have Alopecia Areata but at this time it is in remission but now because of other autoimmune diseases and Parkinson's and stress from a death of a very close friend my hair is falling out all over my head from the root. I can see the root ball and also pustules on scalp and what looks like grains of sand here and there. My hair is so thin now it is just wisps of long hair very thin also like those who have had chemo. I have tried antibiotics, antifungals, given to me by Derm but nothing is…

HI Judy,

The Conference is a bit pricey but well worth it. 

Check out the link I sent you.

Hi Judy, thank you for accepting my friend request. The thoughts you shared on your profile really resonated with me. It *is* hard! Up until a year and a half ago, I thought that women just had the kind of hair they had, I thought it always just stayed the same except that it might turn gray or white. I knew hair could be damaged by products or heat, but since I used neither, I'd have my hair forever. It *never* occurred to me that something could come along to affect my hair and only my hair in this radical way. Yes, totally -- the shedding in the shower is so upsetting! I keep wishing, and I'm sorry if this is offensive to anyone, that I had a.a. Or a.t. because it would feel easier for me to shave it off and stop watching the daily shed of my hair. I'm sure that's a huge oversimplification of what it would be like to have a.a. Anyway, just wanted to say that I know how you're feeling. I'm so sorry you're going through this too!

Hi Judy! Welcome to Alopecia World!

I am 64 and have had alopecia universalis (total body hair loss) for 8 years now. I chose to ditch the hot itchy wigs and go into the world as a Boldly Bald Women. As a writer and speaker, blogger and soon to be podcaster, I have found that helping women navigate the emotional and social impacts of female hair loss in a hair obsessed society is my new life calling.

I am an active member of Alopecia World. Is there anything I can do to help?

Pam
