I did it

Posted on September 8, 2010 at 5:53pm 12 Comments

Not only did I post my pic on my facebook page last night but I went to work bald today!!!!!!! I went out to lunch with co-workers and even renewed my drivers license all without hair. I felt so good about myself today.

Message from a friend

Posted on August 7, 2010 at 10:34pm 6 Comments

Today on FB I received a message from a friend who has terminal cancer and said "it's hard to be without hair" and she doesn't see how I handled it all this time. She is the most amazing person. I remember when she was diagnosed and was worried about losing her hair, I told her not to worry I would come to work bald with her. There is nothing the doctors can do for her now but she is still here and living life. And you know what, that's what we should all be doing as well.

Guilty/Alopecia Not Involved

Posted on July 14, 2010 at 10:29pm 6 Comments

I'm not a bad person but I feel guilty. I have a very good friend that received a promotion and I'm jealous. I have been in the government agency for 25 years she has been there 5 years. I have been her mentor for the entire 5 year period and I feel just a bit jealous that she got a promotion to a job that I have wanted for years. I feel like such a terrible person because I am both proud and jealous. She is a wonderful girl and I wanted her to get a promotion and I'm completly shocked that I… Continue

I thought I was moving ahead by wearing the scaves the past couple of weeks, but then when I went out today I felt totally different. I went to brunch with my husband today and realized I was the only woman in the restaurant without hair. I felt so cheated and unhappy. This is a set back and I don't know how to get past it. I want to cry but I know that's not going to help. Why did this thing happen to us?

So I wore a scarf to work today instead of my wig. I was nervous going in to work but everyone was excited to see my new look. I don't know if I will do it again tomorrow but today was great. I even went shopping with a friend and out to dinner. One giant step for this woman!!!!!!!!

Roslyn, I understand how you feel about the change when your hair begin to start comming out. When the dermatogolist tell you after a biopsy that your hair isn't going to grow back. It has been about a year and 6 months since I have cut all of my sistah locs after switching from a perm to grow natural to try and cover up my spot. One day I just took the scissors and cut all of my long locs off. I tried the wig but it was for me, so I went to the barber to get a brush cut and I love it . I color it so it can blend in, but I haven't took the step yet to shave it off. I can remember when one of my co-worker look at me and said.. It's okay it will get better, because I understand what you are going through.. So I asked her do you have Alopecia to, then she said no, I thought you had cancer like me. In my mind I thought to myself loosing hair isn't everything, but loosing your life to a terminally illness is far worse.. So my outlook in regards to Alopecia is something that I have to decide accept and live.. But it takes one day at a time to accept the change from how things use to be.. So, I say to you to be encourage...

You are beautiful BALD, but if you don't feel secure going out without a wig on, that's okay, too! Do what helps YOU feel more secure.

Peace and Blessings,
