About Me:
I am here to connect with others who are affected with alopecia. I credit this site in helping me to become less self conscious when I go out bald in public.

I wish that there was a group where I could personally interact with other alopecians. But it's nice to be here in AW to talk with people who are winning over the uncertainty and unpredictable nature of alopecia.
Peace and Love to All!

Healing Haiku

Posted on August 14, 2010 at 1:05pm 55 Comments

Hello Family!

In the spirit of TallGirl’s excellent blog on the power of the internet in the creation of our home here at Alopecia World; I would like to launch a blog for creative expression. For those of you who are not familiar with haiku, there are many forms, but the basic format is a small poem that comprises of three lines with a specific structure. The first line of a haiku has 5 syllables. The second line has 7 syllables. And the last line has 5 syllables. As you compose your… Continue

Green With Envy?

Posted on April 12, 2010 at 8:53pm 2 Comments

I have a story that my AA family can appreciate. Today I felt sad about being hairless, watching my co-worker walk around the office with a fresh relaxer. Hair flowing as she walks by, I really began to miss what it’s like to have a fresh new hair-do.



Then later this evening I’m at Publix examining the produce aisle, when I see a young twenty-something girl with green (yes bright green) hair examining me. Her two friends are talking animatedly about some fruit or vegetable and she… Continue

Share The Love--Be Authentic!

Posted on February 13, 2010 at 11:58am 11 Comments

This has been an exceptional week for me in my worklife as an instructor. For the first time since I shaved my scalp in '08, I chose to stand before a class of adults without a head cover. The positive reception was more than I expected. But more importantly than that, I had an opportunity to share Alopecia World with others who are experiencing alopecia in their lives. Mostly it was with women who have children or family members with the condition. And one man showed me his chronic bald…

Yes! There IS LOVE in belonging

Posted on February 11, 2010 at 7:59am 1 Comment

I wanted to reprise my blog of last year because I've received so much strength from coming here.

I love Alopecia World because there’s nothing like belonging… I’ve been given the power to take back my life by interacting with the strong and caring people on this site. There aren’t words that are adequate enough to describe how important your love and encouragement has been to me. Thank you Alopecia Family and Happy Valentine's Day!

The only ones I have tried are ones I picked up from the local drug store. They were impossible for me to get on. Thanks for the response. You really do look beautiful.

I would love to be able to find lashes that I could wear. Where do you get yours? They're beautiful!

Dear Galena,
My daughter and her girlfriends were obsessed with haiku poems in 9th grade and had a notebook that they passed around during school that year. I bet she still has it. I doubt I could write one. Plus I don't know if I really can speak to the challenges yet of AA. I just got it in May and my 3 bald patches are hidden, growing but hidden. Can I ask you how you have such nice eyebrows; they are very pretty and seem perfect. I get that I will be able to wear a wig but losing the eyebrows seems harder to deal with. Thanks for any info you can share.
