i am bald... i am okay with it pretty much.. yes there are days i miss my hair but i feel bad when people assume im going through treatment,,,i have lost all body hair..but i dont want to make people think that im going through what a cancer patient is going through..it bothers me but i dont know how to reply..anyone else going thru this?
I have that happen too. People pull my husband aside to ask if I'm okay all the time. I'm thankful that I'm not going thru cancer treatment, but my hair loss does still bother me. And I think those of us with alopecia need a little recognition too.
It’s all educating them. Lots of people will be understanding. It’s just that they don’t know and assume what it is because it draws similarities to cancer with no hair.
yes! I am not there yet, as far as walking around all the time without my trusted blankie wig....lol, but when I do people think I have cancer too. I just tell them the truth, that I do not have cancer and I educate them.
