You're right, I forgot to mention that it was an emotional pain...
It seems that I have to come to realize that there will be time when the pain will be back not matter what...
I still wish for this miracle pill and…"
Thank you so much for your post. It helps to know that we are not alone in this, and some emotions that I experienced are also (unfortunately) experienced by another person because of this disease...
The ladies and…"
Thank you for your comment.
Is it emotional pain, for me. I did not had any physical pain in years, I was hoping that maybe something was going on, like hair follicle growing back...So I went to see a doctor. She told me that it was…"
"Thank you so much Jessica.
You are so right in the way you talk about this disease. I can now understand why I feel like there are two people in me, the one that go out with a wig and look ok, and the one that really don't look good…"
I am sorry to hear that you are having hard time... I hope I was in a brighter season to offer you comfort and strength. But, when I read your post, I realize how deep the pain can be and I just want to help and tell you that it…"

"Emotional pain or physical? I have scarring alopecia as well, and when there's fallout it burns badly enough to keep me from sleeping. As for emotional pain, I understand. I feel like I'm a 'no hair don't care' person, but…"
"When I think of my feelings with alopecia, it's similar to being bipolar. Some days I wake up completely fine, I don't care at all and I'm the most confident person that I never knew I could be, other days, I forget that I can be that…"
"I'm sorry for the way you're feeling. It's very tough, I've been AU since Feb 2017 - I'm not sure it's something that I'll ever get used to. I avoid looking in the mirror at all costs. When I talk to…"
"Auto immune can play these games. It is all about inflammation in my mind and that an come and go. My daughter found the Ibuprofen can work well for the discomfort. Go see your dermo, and tell them you are feeling pain, it could be something else…"
Hello everyone,Is anyone ever experienced this: after a few years of feeling "stable" about my alopecian, I was surprised to feel the pain like in the very first years of witnessing my hair falling... In the last 3 years or so, I did not think that much about my alopecia. I thought I was finally used to it, I thought I went down the path of acceptance.

"I am sorry to hear that.
The only thing I can hear when I read your post is: don't quit. As our one of the lady wrote in one of the above post: alopecia has taken so much out of our lives, don't let it take the job you like :)"
