For the first time since my diagnosis three years ago, I actually met someone face to face with Alopecia. All I have ever known and spoken with are the great people on here. My friends on this site talked me off a ledge at the very beginning...but I digress.

I was busy running around coordinating an Entertainment event here in my city on the weekend and the member of a band getting ready to perform approached me and said, "So how long have you had Alopecia?" I stopped dead in my…

So I guess I'll start in September of 2007 -- when I went to my regular hair stylist for my regular monthly haircut. I had a full head of thick, dark hair. Or so I thought. She started cutting and pointed out that I have been thinning at a rapid rate. I honestly hadn't noticed a lot of hair loss previous to her holding up the mirror to show me. I was shocked, to say the least -- who looks at the back of their head on a daily basis? I didn't feel it while shampooing. Nothing -- because I…

Hi Mike - that sounds great. Apparently the Facebook group was archived?? I haven't been on that particular page in a while. Please feel free to contact me on Facebook; hopefully I don't have my privacy settings so restricted that you can't find me. Let me know!

Hi Mike,

I believe we've spoken before. If you're ever near PA or Saskatoon, would you be interested in meeting up with us? Logan is 15 now and going through "those teenage years". He doesn't like to talk about alopecia at all and I sometimes wonder if it's affecting him at all. Overall he seems like a happy kid but I speculate he would feel relieved if he actually had a chance to sit down and talk to somebody who shares similar experiences. Let me know. Thanks!

Hi Mike,

I think that sounds like a great idea. I started a group on Facebook called Saskatchewan Alopecia with the hopes of starting some kind of support group. I've neglected it for a while but there are a few members - mostly my friends and family. We're in Prince Albert; where do you live?

Thanks Mike, I sometimes wonder how I would of felt if when I first lost my hair and found the site. I find it amazing that people can now find immediate support with others who are going through the same thing. Take care, Cheryl
