New alopecian vs. seasoned alopecian

New: OMG, can I find a hairstyle that is in fashion to hide this? Will anyone notice? I HAVE to have a wig that is the same color, texture and style as my old hair and looks like it is growing out of my head. I can't let a boy find out or touch my head! Arrrrrrgh...what about eyebrows, intimacy, wedding, children, wind, convertibles, sports, hanging upside down from trees and monkey-bars, sleepovers, swimming, coworkers, gossips, mean girls, overprotective worried relatives, gawkers, rude comments? What about pills, shots, driver's license, photos, passport, travel, no insurance, wig costs, heat's destroying my wigs (so no hovering over stoves while entertaining), steroids, support groups, false advertising and lame advice? Who is it safe to tell? Will they reject me? Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

Seasoned: Whatever. Been there, thought that. Back to work, back to life. Wigs in all colors and styles, hats, scarves, nothing...depending on the mood. I am what I am. Love those make-up tutorials online.

I can't believe I'm already a seasoned alopecian, Tallgirl :)  I've had AU for 5 years now.  It's been quite a journey, and I think I've handled it quite well.  It feels good to be able to offer advice to newbies and make the transition easier.
