My life as a high school senior

has become extremely difficult. i'm stressed out over everything. i have a lot of pull in my school. as the national honor society president, yearbook editor, and lead & seed (anti drug and alcohol group) president, i always have a lot on my mind. and you know what, dealing with stress and the pressure of being perfect is what i'm best at. i can pull off every single deadline and meet every single requirement for any task. plus more. the only thing that can't handle it... is my hair. it's…See More

days after being called a liar, i understand why it hurt me so bad. i wish i could lie about this situation i'm in. i wish the simple truth was that i wanted to draw attention to myself, and that i could stop at any time. but the truth is still there - i can't grow hair. i don't shave my arms and eyebrows off like i was accused of doing. i wish that i did, because i could stop and they would grow back. but they don't, i have alopecia. this is my fate. unlike theirs, mine doesn't involve hair…See More

About Me:
my parents said that i got my first bald spot when i was five. and soon after, i had two more. they stayed there for a few months, then filled in. it was years later, when i was about twelve that it started again. but this time all over my body, it was on my arms and face as well. spots were disappearing overnight. and its gotten progressively worse since then. i began to lose sections of my eyebrows and my eyelashes, more of my hair fell out and there was less hair on my arms and legs. now im eighteen. ive gotten to the point where i have no eyelashes, except for four lashes on my right eye. i have no eyebrows, i made the decision to wax them off, because there was barely anything left to them. i just draw them on every day, instead of filling them in. i have no hair on my arms, and i barely ever have to shave my legs. as of now, i have five large bald spots on my head. and its getting to the point where i dont know what the next step is. soon i have to make the decision whether to try to hide it more effectively with my natural hair or whether to shave my head and go for a wig.all while keeping in mind that i have hair almost to my butt and its definitely one of the main aspects about myself.

i play tennis, forgot to mention. its the only time when i don't feel like a slob for wearing my hair up and having a thick headband in. no school today, so i didn't have to paint my face on at six am. instead i got to wait until before my tennis match at three. but that's barely anything, i still have eight million more things to do tonight. and when i get back to school tomorrow there's still nine million more things waiting. yippee... i used to dress up, business casual i'd even say. high…

Human hair I buy the hair in Asia at street markets and it is so cheap going to Thailand on the 27th and picking up a load. Then we send it to China and they make it up to a custom mould.
