S alopecia has not received any gifts yet
we live in such a shallow world
appearances are so highly regarded. It is actually saddening.
If this condition has given me nothing else in the last 12 years- it is the realisation that beauty comes from within.
It really saddens me that some with alopecia are too afraid to even tell people about it because of being judged.
When we die- we are not remembered for our looks, but for the people we are !
As frustrating and upsetting this disease can be, I am thankful…
I am generally a very happy person with a great outlook on life... but I at times I get really down as everyone here does.. so I wrote a bit of a poetic piece to describe the pain ..
What it is like to have alopecia
Losing your hair, losing your femininity
Losing your normality
Years of teasing and feeling like you are being stared at
Having to realise that you will always feel ‘fake’
Hiding behind your wig, fake eyelashes and crayoned…
