I was on the trolley the other day and a guy asked me if i have alopecia and that's the first time someone asked me that before but i answer the question very truthfully. then he said he wasn't imagining it. i was so weirded out afterward. how would you react if it happen to you?

Hi - if you still live in San Diego and would like to meet some local folks with Alopecia, we're having a lunch to celebrate International Alopecia Day, Saturday, August 4, 2012.

We're having lunch (margaritas if you want) at Tio Leo's Mexican restaurant at 3510 Valley Centre Drive in Del Mar (It's actually in Carmel Valley, right off Hwy 56 and I-5). You can view their menu here: http://www.tioleos.com/

They're not charging us for the room, but there is a $10 per person (food and beverages total) minimum charge.

Gathering time is 11:30am - it will be casual and will continue as long as we're having fun. I'll bring my "International Alopecia Day" banner and anyone who wants to be in the photos for our annual YouTube video can. If you don't want to be in the photos, that's fine, too.
We have a private room in the back of the restaurant. Come bald, in a scarf, or in a wig - or in your hair if you have it!

Please let me know if you're planning on attending so I can give the

Hi Tamika, I read you bio and am sorry to hear you had such a rough time growing up with this. That is what I am so fearful, that my son will suffer because of some mean kids. Casey is really strong and has a great self-confidence due to his great sports abilities. I do worry that that won't be enough.He has only been teased twice and once it was with his friends around. The friends stood right up for him and actually turned the kid in to the principal. That made him know how strong is friendships are. Casey has been dealing with this just since July. He lost 75% in a couple of months. We then saw complete regrowth. WOW??? Actually not. unfortunately I got my hopes up thinking that perhaps he would be one of the lucky ones who deal with it once and it's over. Well as soon as the regrowth came it he has begun to lose everything that he kept the first time around. I am really glad you found this site. I'm sure you have experienced the great support here. I use to cry everyday whenever my kids weren't around. I'm now getting to a position of acceptance (or at least as much as a mom can). It just hurts so much to see your child go through this...I wish it were me instead. If you every have any advice you might think could help us, I would love to hear it. Anyway, hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Margie
