About Me:
Hi, I'm 26 years old and have had alopecia since I was 8. Almost 4 years ago, I shaved my head because the bald spots got so big I could no longer cover them up... I've been bald ever since. Now that my hair has started to grow back, I choose to keep it shaved, if not for self preservation, for the ease of getting ready in the morning. ;o)

Alopecia has helped me see that what is on the outside doesn't count near as much as whats on the inside. I've graduated from veterinary school and just married the man of my dreams. If my alopecia decides to return one day, I'll be okay with it. It's just hair as far as I'm concerned.

I'm glad this site was put together....
Are you age 18 or older?
Your Website (Leave blank if you don't have one):
I stole this from ol sweet mary:

To love a bald woman isn’t to love her merely because she is bald. It is to see what she is really like, and to really like far more than what you see. It is to avoid mistaking her head for her mind, or her shell for her spirit. It is to cherish her as no less of a woman regardless of the hair she may be “missing.”

So what if alopecia sometimes causes her to have patchy or thinning hair! An exemplary lifestyle is infinitely more important than any hairstyle. Besides, true character is not diminished by loss of hair, and the presence or absence of locks certainly is not the key to love.

You may behold her as “bald and beautiful.” Indeed, you should! Bear in mind, however, that beauty that is only skin-deep is fool’s gold. Love her neither as a fetish, nor just for how she appears on the outside. Adore the phenomenal woman, but only with a true lover’s eyes.

Hi, I'm Santi, I'm new here and I have alopecia universalis since I was 3. I never had the chance to contact with other people like me and I would be very interested to share esperiences and stories with other members of this comunity, cause I think that helps a lot, so if you'd like to I'd be glad to chat with you or mail you anytime you wish. I'm just looking for friendship, cause I care about the stories and the people. That goes for everyone who reads this post too.
Hope to know from you very soon :) S.

I have seen your photos, and you prove that bald is indeed beautiful. In fact, you are a beautiful person whether you have hair or not. I have written screenplays that have bald female characters who are positive role models. It is people like you that inspired me as a writer and an artist.
