I just watched 'Geogia in tears' - My child is feeling exactly like her

Posted on December 19, 2013 at 6:00am 0 Comments

I just watched the Georgia in tears video and my heart is breaking. My own child is feeling exactly like her and only 8.

Last night she was sobbing because when she washed her hair handfuls came out.

How do I help her deal with her pain and not show her I hurt for her too.

So I haven't been on here in a while but for the past year my daughters hair has been growing back and to be honest I have not thought about her alopecia. But in the last month it has become our life again. Watching my beautiful 8year old loosing patch after patch of hair and her now noticing it and suffering this loss. It is like starting with it all again.
When she asks me 'why does it go mummy?'
Why can't I be normal and have long hair.. it breaks my heart. She is beautiful with or without hair. But to a child of 8 who is starting to notice people & differences around them being beautiful without hair is scary.
So this week she asks about wigs again and I will get her a good one if thats what she wants. But the hair she does have is so precious a wig will just irritate it and pull it out more surely.
I guess I just want her to be happy and to take away this inadequacy she is feeling :-*(
