Out of denial...

Thinking somehow when I got answers I would feel better. 1st group. 1st blog. Frustrated from writing an hour to comment on someone's blog only to LOSE everything I wrote. Tried to think of it as a purging not meant for others... But I feel so alone. Overwhelmed by all I've learned in last 72 hrs. But I am HERE. FEEL miserably physically but a hint of hope that I'll only be alone by choice now. And sometimes I need the solitude but find that to much time spent alone with my thoughts can be a…

Always Look At The Bright Side Of Life

Every day when we wake up, we have a choice. We can go into the day with a negative mind or a positive one. Did you know that it’s your choice? It’s true! Every day you have the power to wake up and choose the kind of day you will have.



Ok, I know what you’re thinking. What about those days where nothing goes your way. How do you look at that with a positive attitude? It’s simple. Shift your perspective. Perhaps you miss the school bus, but then that means I have to drive you. If we… Continue

Sometimes things aren't okay

I have never written a blog before so please, bare with me. 

When I was about 2 years old, I began losing patches of hair. My parents took me to doctors to determine the problem.

Newbie- FFA

Hi everyone, thanks for the add, I'm new to this website and just wanted to share my story so far.

I first realised there was something wrong when one hair follicle became inflamed and wouldn't heal, this was about 8 years ago. I went to a dermatologist who told me it was psoriasis. Very slowly I started to lose my hair, it was only when I looked at photos of myself I realised it was receding. I have very thick hair and thick eyebrows, that I needed to keep on top of constantly, then…

How I told my colleagues about my alopecia areata

Almost 6 years ago I told my colleagues why my hair always looks so nice.

It was time to tell them, I did it in our office newspaper.

Here is my story, I want it to share with you all:

You all know me as Connie van der Schans and I want to tell you my story:

I suffer from Alopecia Areata. It’s a disease and -as research shows- not a rare one. One or two people in every hundred suffer, or have suffered from it in some form or another.

People with…
