Okay, so most of you are familiar with my "alopecia story". The whole having AU since I was a youngster, getting my first Locks of Love hairpiece when I was in 4th grade, and now I'm trying to deal with alopecia in a positive way to keep myself from drowning in those terrible emotions that comes with having this disease.

We were at a park and it seemed like a good moment. Maria even felt the underside of my hairpiece to make sure, since she thought I was lying. They both took it extremely well to my surprise.
