Question for AU people

I am curious how you respond when someone comments on your lack of hair. I have become really good at dealing with little kids who are generally just really curious and tend to be pretty blunt. They…Continue

Regrowth ... again

Posted on September 10, 2017 at 11:49pm 0 Comments

So I have more growth than I have had since I lost the last of my hair spring of 2012. Still patchy but more coverage than before. I also have eyebrows and eyelashes that are long enough to wear mascera.

In addition to Alopecia Universalis I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Autoimmune thyroiditis. The RA was diagnosed 13 years ago. Dec 2016 my Rheumatologist and I finally called it quits on Remicaid. I had been on that for about 10 years when it started to fail. In Feb 2017 I started… Continue

So my hair has started to grow back ... kind of. I guess what I have now would be AA. It is very patchy. I feel kind of ungrateful saying this but I actually wish it would just go away. Way less than 50% of my head has hair so it looks terrible. I don't tolerate my wigs anymore so I always wear a scarf to work and usually a hat outside of the office. I am so tired of covering my head!

Wierd week

So - it has been a weird week.

First - I have been thinking very hard about the awesome things associated with AU such as the fact that I never, ever have a bad hair day. I have also realized when you are bald people seem to think you are prettier than before - are their expectations of beauty less than when you had hair? Like it is so shocking that a bald woman can be attractive? Not sure. They should look at this website and see all the breath taking pictures of bald women! Also…


My alopecia story in pictures (Part 3)

Posted on September 15, 2012 at 1:30am 13 Comments

March 2012

I am now head shaved and getting permanent make-up. I have also noticed I now lack arm and leg hair - so there are a few perks to alopecia universalis i guess

I decided that if I was going to get brave and try to go wigless and scarfless then vacation in the Caribbean was a good place to try it out. I still wore my wig to dinner every night…

Hello...have you seen the website They show cute winter hats....with hair!!! They are pretty expensive, for me, for what they are. But seem cute. They are local for me, but a distance to drive. I will get out there someday. It is just not on my way to anywhere!!

Yes how you stopped it usually takes ages for that too happen what were your strategies in doing so. going bald in public is huge step for an alopecian Pat took over 10 years so 8 months is awe inspiring.
