Beach meditation

Feeling so grateful to be immersed in nature, to be grounded by the earth, sky and sea and to feel completely at home in my own body. I may not have much hair but right now I'm feeling pretty calm about it. :)

About Me:
I'm 32 and I've had alopecia on and off since I was 10 years old.

It got a lot worse in my mid-20s, so I decided to stop wearing uncomfortable wigs (which were actually making me feel more anxious).

Instead, I shaved my head and started writing about my experiences as an alopecian. I now feel a lot more comfortable in my baldness and 90% of the time the reactions I get are great! As for the others, I try not to let them get to me...

I want to share my story for people struggling with self-esteem issues because of hair loss – and to be inspired by their stories, too!

Luckily, alopecia is becoming more of a familiar term nowadays and there are more options out there to turn to for support. But I want to grow the community further – that's why I'm in the process of setting up my personal site, which should be ready soon.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Advantages of Alopecia

Posted on March 5, 2019 at 9:40pm 0 Comments

Seems like an oxymoron, right? 

How could there be advantages to this condition? It makes us alopecians feel ashamed. It makes us feel different. And it makes us live in fear, a lot of the time...especially if we're still at the stage of covering our patches with stick-on pieces or wearing a full wig.

It can even lead to us feeling anxious and depressed – something I have…

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil588@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Stella.
