About Me:
Mother of 15 year old son with Alopecia. I have had Alopecia as a young adult for about 1 year. I am anxious for my son as he is having a difficult time with this experience. It started July '08 lost most of his hair by September and then eyelashes eyebrows body hair AU. We live in a world of so much diversity however when it is about the exterior there are double standards. To put much more emphasis on this for me as a parent with a teen dealing with this I am in the process of selling a hair salon and am still working there.

Hi Jean, How are you? I replied to your note to me on the discussion board. Please email if you have any questions. I am happy to share my story. I have pictures posted of various stages of Sam's regrowth. My profile pic is what she currently looks like after a year on a regrowth cycle. Cindy

Hi Jean, We are practically neighbors. I live in Orange. Anyway, my daughter has been OK. She just turned 13 and has been wearing wigs almost 2 years. We are in an unusual situation because she goes to a small private school and has been able to adjust to AU without to many social issues. However, she never goes w/out the wig. I'll be glad to talk to you more on a personal level. I think if we are "friends" I can privately give you my email and phone.

Hi Jean, Yes, I understand the struggle. I also know the struggle that parents have. But has you can see many of these kids grow to be well adjusted adults with careers, relationships, victories and struggles. It is just a matter of find our place of acceptance and going from there. Keep in touch! Cheryl

thank you for the nice comment!=]
I have had Alopecia Areata since I was 12.
I finally accepted my alopecia after the tyra show.
I enjoy the National Alopecia Areata Foundation Confences because i met alot of people who know what i face with Alopecia.

I also find that Alopecia World is very helpful because you get to talk to people with alopecia.
