About Me:
Alright time to update this...

I've been living with alopecia for a couple years now. I first noticed a spot on the side of my head, and one in my facial hair when I didnt shave for a few days. I went on line to research it and found out what I might have and went to the doctors. They diagnosed me with AA and said not to worry that I wasn't going to lose all my hair. Well about 6 month later the spots kept coming and so I stopped all the treatments (creams, shots, everything... I even tried some alternative medicines such as acupuncture). Well 6 months after that and I'm completely bald on my head (no eyebrows, a few eyelashes left) and it appears I'm very close to being AU and having no hair at all. I've given up on treatments and have focused more on just living my life and accepting it, as hard as that may be sometimes.

Away from the whole alopecia thing...I'm a junior in college. I'm a Physical Education major with a concentration in Adaptive PE. Which means I'll be specialized in working with kids with disabilities. I really enjoy what I'm going to school for, and because of that my grades actually show it for once haha. I also enjoy coaching youth sports. The past few years I've coached 7th and 8th grade boys soccer and 7th grade girls basketball. It was a great experience and it was amazing to see how much of an impact I could make in that short time. I had to stop because of transfering schools but it's definately something I want to do again once I'm done with school.

Other than that I love sports and music. I'm a huge soccer fan, sometimes a little too much haha, but I have at least one team in every major sport I can root for. Music wise I like everything. I've been playing drums since I was 5 (self-taught) and have begun to teach myself to play guitar and piano.

I'm just a typical college kid, like to have fun. I'm pretty open minded and a pretty accepting person. I often put my friends before me. I love being on the St. Lawrence River, where I live and everything that comes with that.

If theres anything else you want to know about me just ask

Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?

Houston is so Close

Posted on June 22, 2009 at 8:30pm 5 Comments

So again I havent had much of a chance to update on here much, I did throw up a few pictures of me teaching from this past semester at college and also some pictures out with my friends. I figured since my picture before had me with eyebrows I should change it, because I dont have them anymore.



So I keep finding or having people "tag" me in photos from the past. It's so much of a shock to see how much I've changed, and sometimes it makes it hard for me. I've tried to stay away from… Continue

Conference is booked...Houston here I come!

Posted on March 31, 2009 at 1:30am 6 Comments

So it's official, I'll be going to my first NAAF conference this year. I'm excited. I booked everything this past weekend while I was home. So how about it? Who else is going to be there?



The only thing I'm not 100% thrilled about is going by my self. I can't really see anyone else in my family giving up time from work though, so I better be meeting some of you guys down there and hanging out.



But yeah overall I'm excited and can't wait. Especially since college is so… Continue

Neglecting...

Posted on March 18, 2009 at 7:42pm 4 Comments

So I have definitely neglected this site lately. I don’t even remember the last time I spent more than 5 minutes on this site. For a while I was spending at least an hour a day on here. It not that I don’t like this site or anything, I still love it and think its great support. It’s just my life has been changing so fast and I haven’t had a chance to even stop and catch my breath.



In the last few months I have moved to a different part of the state (just for the school year, but its… Continue

I didn't even recognize you...

Posted on September 17, 2008 at 12:00am 1 Comment

Well I’ve decided to try and be a little more frequent and shorter with my posts…



First let me just apologize for everyone that’s left me comments. I haven’t had the chance to reply because I’ve been so busy, but I have read every comment and I appreciate it. And I also hope everyone is doing well.



I’m sick of people saying that they didn’t recognize me at first because of my bald head. Does hair really change you that much??? It seems like everyone I run into that I… Continue

Trying to Catch My Breath...

Posted on September 10, 2008 at 11:16pm 3 Comments

I realize I haven’t been on here in a long time. I think the last time I added a blog was mid July. I seemed to have lost track of everything, so I’ve spent the last few minutes catching up with all the posts by people on here for the most part.



As for me, the rest of my summer was spent pretty much working. I finished coaching the summer soccer season with a dozen girls, all under 12, who all became little sisters to me. Even if I seemed like I didn’t I really enjoyed it. It was… Continue

My husband and I started coaching youth soccer when Nicholas started playing 4 years ago it has been a lot of fun and a learning expereince for all of us. We try to encourage Nicholas to try sports and things too to help his confidence.
