If The Obama's don't want him ... I Do!!!!

TALK ABOUT AMAZING publicity for Alopecians!! Even if it starts with a D-O-G!!



Completely bald and older than the Incas, the Peruvian hairless dog seems like an odd fit for the White House.



But Peruvians are mindful of President-elect Barack Obama's preference for a hypoallergenic breed due to his daughter Malia's allergies — and say the dark, rough-skinned pooch with large ears and a pointy snout could be… Continue

Oh, I HATE how this sadness and anger sneaks-up on me!! Is it PMS? Maybe? Is it normal? Maybe? Does it drive me INSANE .. You BET!! Because I have REALLY REALLY been trying to be happy! To Accept this! To be OKAY! But since Saturday night, it's not working out so well!! First I was pissy cause wearing my wig out all afternoon gave me a HUGE headache!! Then I wasn't comfortable enough to ride in my own car with nothing on my head ... You know, afraid to be JUDGED by complete strangers! Sunday I… Continue

Fuel the Fire

I sit here trying to figure out what I'm suppose to be learning from this experience! Where am I to grow from here? I KNOW with 110% certainty that there are NO accidents in life! God has a plan for me! Somedays I am too stubborn, too angry, or too scared to accept this new path. I feel like I should have the Serenity Prayer tattooed on me So that I remember I can not change things!!



So, if I can not change things for myself ... How can I MAKE A DIFFERENCE? How can I help others? How… Continue

Hi Celeste, I came across your name in the blog about the NAAF conference in Indy next year. Seen you live in Fishers. I live in Kokomo. I am excited about the conference being here. Hopefully it will be affordable enough for me. I have never been to one and would love to attend. I have had AA (I think) for about 15 years now and still can't come to terms with it. I am not happy with no hair and I hate wearing wigs. I would love to meet other people with it to see how they cope.

Awesome writing here Celeste - so very easy to relate to, it's like you've put many of my own feelings into words. I'm hooked and look forward to your next instalment.

thanks for finding me!!
i decided awhile ago that being angry because i had alopecia wont make my hair grow back. lolz. so everyday gets a little better and i do have those days where i feel like i've taken ten steps backwards.

look forward to venting with you soon! haha!

Hey Celeste, Good for you on the shave I just shaved mine today it feels great.
Can I ask who your wig is by and what the name is? My family lives in Noblesville and I'd love to check out new wig shops to see what they have.
