Hope you're having a great weekend!
I can relate to you very well...I never loved myself and struggled with depression and anxiety since I was a teenager. I've had Alopecia Areata, Totalis and now Universalis. My AU started…"
It was 2006/2007 when I first started loosing my hair in patches. I had cortisone injections on my scalp, a little patch grew then later fell out as well.
I was recommended to take vitamin E, I did that for a while, the patches of hair on my head grew but the rest of my scalp was still bald.
I ended up being completely bald.
I wore wigs and tried to make the best of it,
I stopped taking the vitamin E, I figured there was no point. One day about a few months later , I noticed baby hair starting to grow...I started taking vitamin E again and my hair continued to grow and I had hair again.
A couple of months ago I started loosing clumps of hair again....a few weeks ago I bought a couple of wigs and shaved the rest of my hair off.
It's not great having Alopecia but I know things could always be worse!
Still, I struggle with how "I" think I look...bald or even with my wig on. I feel like people know that it's not my real hair.
