I was 25 when I lost my hair. In the week of Sept 2007 I found out that I had a Thyroid Problem, I needed a Hysterectomy and Alpoecia. That is a lot for one person to take in all at once. I had the Hysterectomy not even a month later. I was to far advanced for the cortisone shots. So I opted for a wig. By Christmas my hair was falling out left and right so on Jan 1st, 2008 my husband and my friend helped me SHAVE the rest of my hair off. Then we realized how bad it really was. There were patches all over my head and in the back of it, soon after that it was all gone. I had/having a really hard time coping with this but I look at it this way... I'm still healthy!!! I'm a fun loving person who is super busy with Girl Scouts, Soccer and 3 daughter's from the age's 8-4. I have a very supportive husband, family and friends. Well it must be meant for me not to have any hair on my arms too. It's falling off real quickly and now I'm freezing all the time.. Too bad we can't pick where we want our hair go missing next!!!!
Thanks for the comment on my blog, and the support! It did surprise me finding all the other spots, but I'm sure I'll get over it sometime. And you are right, my neck, head and ears are freezing when I'm not in a wig! :o)
