It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
Hey, I understand what you're going through. I have Alopecia Areata, so I lost ALL of my eyelashes, hair, and eyebrows. Im 12 years old, and I lost my hair at age 7 and I remember the days I lost my hair. I was brushing my hair when chunks came out and the hair felt lifeless and weird. My mom came in and started crying, but for some reason I was fine. I got picked on at school (now im home schooled), and since I'm getting older I cry a lot and I hate seeing myself without hair. I have no friends who understand me either, and I felt like I was the only one who suffered from this, I just felt alone. I wear a hairpiece, that's SOO real its unbelievable. I can go swimming with it, jump around, go on roller coasters and it WONT come off. I've had it for 5 years now, and I LOVE IT! You can honestly think its my real hair. But when I take it off, it hurts me really bad because I know im never am gonna experience having hair. Like when I was younger I didnt really care for my hair, I just tied it in ponytails and just had fun. But now I hate not sleeping with my hair, not having lashes & brows, just missing out on sooo many things. I can go on, but that will take forever. I just wanted to know that you're not alone, and that I understand what you're going through.
Hi Ashcookie, I have a daughter who is also 12 years old and was diagnosed with AA Aug 2018. She lost 99% of her hair in 3 weeks. Can you please tell me where you get your wigs from? I know exactly what you're talking about because my daughter is going through the same. I just wish I can take her place. It's only been 5 mos. since her diagnosis but it feels like forever. We're still hoping for the day she grows her hair. Can you share also what meds you're taking? My daughter is on Xeljanz cream since August but no progress.
What she said above, and more.
I am a 16 year old who has alopecia, and what I would do is check and make sure your vitamins are a stable levels. Make sure your thyroid is all good, and try your best to keep your stress low (it's so hard I know,) If your vitamins are low in any way, I suggest you take vitamins every day especially things like Vitamin D, Iron, and Zinc. Losing hair definitely sucks, but at the end of the day, life goes on. Ask yourself: Is this going to take over my life? How can I be a better person? What can I do to better myself? These are questions i've been asking myself. Sure, I have a bald patch, but that doesn't mean I can't get better at playing the trumpet. That doesn't mean I can't play basketball. The good news is that a cure really imo will be here within 10-20 years. Just focus on vitamin intake for now, make sure everything else is good so your immune system is healthy! You'll be fine!
I can understand you. I'm 25 and I have sores on buttocks like https://illnessee.com/herpes-on-buttocks-pictures/ and I don't feel myself as an attractive woman. Don't feel myself full. But I try to accept myself as I'm. It should help
