Hey, don't worry, you'll be perfectly able and cappable to get a decent job or anything you wish just as always, the secret is to keep on believeing in your possibilities. You are NOT your hair, actually you don't even need it. Trust me.

I know what you mean! It's ridiculous to have to pay that much. If you go to www.wigsalon.com they have a lot of good wigs for less than that. They also have sales going on. The wig I'm wearing in this photo I bought from them and it was only about $100. It's Rene of Paris. Also if you go to Beauty Trends online or get a catalog, they have some nice ones (you have to sift through the boring ones). Lots are less than $100. Let me know what you find.

Hi Gina,
I know exactly what you are going through, watching the spots get bigger and bigger. There are inexpensive wigs available. What is your budget? I may be able to help you find some.

Hi Gina! Thanks for adding me. :) I was just diagnosed at the beginning of May, so I know what you are going through. This website is SO helpful though and everyone is SO nice. I think it will really help you like it has helped me. It's so nice to know that you have 900 folks with Alopecia right there for you if you have any questions. Please feel free to message me anytime you need to talk. ;)

Hugs,
Mandy
