"Sorry I haven't responded. I've since been married and had a baby. How are you doing? I still haven't accepted my scarring alopecia. Every now and then I have melt downs when I see a woman who has the same hair I had"

Help?

I'm honestly tired of people around me saying "you're still pretty" The point is I don't feel that way. I don't even feel like me anymore. I feel so lonely. Just a few years ago i was 80lbs lighter, working out in the gym and had a full head of hair. Now i'm overweight, depressed and have to wear wigs to leave the house. I can't stand to look at myself in the mirror anymore. If i don't like myself how can anyone else? I had a boyfriend a few months ago but he didn't understand what i was going…See More

"Hi, I couldnt agree more with what others had said. Jenny, you've been through brain tumour, a hardship that is far greater than alopecia, on the other hand, one can say is a different thing. Nevertheless, Jenny you're not alone, and it…"

My nightmare

In 08' I received radiation for a brain tumor I had. As a result I ended up with End scarring alopecia. Before going to the Dermatologist i tried EVERYTHING. Biotoin....Naproxen.....pills.....massaging my scalp. Once he took a biopsy and told me there was nothing i could do to make my hair come back i was devastated. Have been ever since. Currently i'm on Anti- Depressants because of this. I've spent thousands of dollars in wigs and head scarves. I just don't feel like "me" anymore. I know my…See More

Hello and welcome, Jenny!
I'm sorry you are having a hard time.
You said you had black curly hair. Does it help to have a wig that's like your old hairstyle? I have wigs that look just like the way my hair used to look.
