I'm a single mom of two high school children. I've had alopecia for 8 yrs and now it's just about AT. Went to the NAAF conference in Indy. Next best thing to living in Italy...
I found a good acupunturist too this past year. He really helped me emotionally and I went to him for herbs (chinese, ha) for about 8 mo. Now, Im tired of taking 20 capsules a day and spending so much out of pocket cash on pills. As for the derm doc, after 8 yrs of monthly injections, then 4 mo. of oral medrol two different periods, i really maxed out my steriod use. I stay on the fosamax and work hard to keep up my bone density. Must say there are no 'physical' aches or pains with alopecia.
Back to my wig permanently until I'm brave enough to bear all. Must say I'm grateful for it and all my friends here.
Thank you Robin for sharing all your thoughts on this post.
My name is Brent Cairns, from Auckland New Zealand (I have alopecia also)
The purpose of this post is to ask you if you could please supply me with some info for my studies. I'm definitely not selling anything. I am not buying anything and I don't work for a Wig company whatsoever nor everhave.
Q1: What are the problems, if any, that you have experienced or currently experience with wearing Wigs? Q2: What are that you believe are the problems that you've have/ had experience(d) from Wig suppliers/ retailers? Q3: What support do or did you receive from these Wig suppliers/ retailers, if at all?

Hi Robyn, thanks for your comment on my profile page...yes I agree my hb is a good looking guy and yes he's always been very supportive to me. I love him so much. So far I have no side effects on the prednisone but I suppose it's early days yet. I'm hoping to taper off to a low dose over the next few weeks. What dose did you get down to?
