About Me:
Hi all,
My hair started coming out shortly after having my son 18 yrs. ago. It has been a very difficult journey for me. Ironically I was a hairdresser and so I knew some of the best tricks to hide the hairloss. I am glad I found this website to know I am not alone and other people can relate. Its very difficult for me to talk about with friends or family even though most of the women on my moms side and a sister suffer with alopecia. We have never talked about it with eachother but we do notice the new wigs and weaves and realize another one has bit the dust. My husband has never made me feel anything other than attractive and I thank God for that. I am not at the point where I am ready to shave but I am longing for the freedom of not having to hide any more. ADDENDUM-( July 6, 2010-It has now been almost 1year since I shaved my head now and I feel free as ever!)
Do you have alopecia?
Female pattern baldness
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

sunday after church my friends 2 kids came running to give me a hug after service. one is 5 and the other is 4. the youngest one said "auntie you didnt wear your wig today?" i reminded her that auntie only wears her wig to work. so then she says " we didnt wear our wigs either, i have a pink one and my sister has a yellow one!" i laughed sooooo hard! so then the oldest one reached for me to pick her up for a hug, when i did she took her little warm hand and rubbed my head as she hugged me with… Continue

i just recently came back from visiting my parents. i was a little self concious about my parents seeing me for the first time bald so i put on a hat before getting off the plane. as i was waiting for my dad to drive around to pick me up, i saw him and waved. he looked at me and drove right by! i called him on his cell and told him to drive around again because he missed me. so at the house my dad told me to take off my hat so he could see me. he told me i dont look bad with a bald head and… Continue

I finally did it!

On July 7th I shaved my head. I waited until my husband and son left the house to go fishing and I did it. I dont know what made me finally decide to do it. I thought it was going to be very emotional for me but it wasnt. I didnt shed one tear. I didnt even feel sad. I actually felt relief and freedom. I was glad what was left was gone. I looked at my bald self and smiled. I bundled up my hair and told it "I loved you." I placed it under the bathroom sink. I just could not throw it away, I… Continue

hi all,

this is my first time blogging too. so on friday i was having a very good day at work when the tables turned. we were all coming back from lunch when my boss looks at me and says in front of everyone "hey pat, do you know the first time i realized that your hair is not really yours?" so with everyone looking i stopped him dead in his next ignorant tracks. I said to him "dont you think that is a private matter and that what you said maybe embarrasing to me? And what makes you think… Continue

Thank you. They are my miracle babies. 29 week preemie. When I was told at 19 weeks, they would not make it. God told me he was my Doctor. And now look. I am trying to have the same attitide with this alopecia. But I can seem to get myself together. I think I am so wrapped up in what others will think or say. But I enjoy reading your page. Thanks so much!

Pat, I must say I was looking around on the site and stumbled onto your picture. After reading the office blunder I love the way you fired back. I have been living with alopecia since my youth and this is a hard and sensitive thing to come to grips with. I believe that I am a beautiful and a special person and I get the same feeling from you. People are so ignorant, instead of being sensitive to others for some of us we love to put someone else down or say things without any sensitivity for others. I love your attitude and you wear it well. I also love your photos.
