About Me:
Hi My name is Victoria. I am a 25 yr old Social worker from Edmonton, AB. I first joined this site when I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata in June 2008. My hair has always been my thing and I was always over the top with it. When my hair loss began I absolutely lost it thinking that I would never be attractive again and that my whole life was going to end. With a little acceptance, love for myself, living life and a few trips to my bitchy dermatologist my hair started to grow. It still falls out in other spots, but you can't have it all can you. I do not use wigs. Hair in my photos is my real hair that just covers my bald spots.
I am 25 years old and a social worker for the inner city community. I work in mental health and I love my job. i am also a student. I love yoga, music, the outdoors, sports, and anything fun.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Hi Victoria
I am new to the site and have had alopecia areata for 3 years. Most of my hair grew back, then thinned out on one side and now the old famliar burn of the patches started again 2 weeks ago and so it begins again.
I wanted to ask where you get your wigs, online or in store. I am from Ottawa,ON and have two short wigs for when the patches get too big to cover but would like a shoulder length one.

I too work in the health field, first as a psw for twenty years, now as a secretary in mental health in a hospital, and occasionly in records. I too love my job.
Hope to hear from you soon and that you are doing ok. I still feel like screaming sometimes especially when I started loosing my eyebrows. Funny story that is.

Hi Victoria,

I also have alopecia areata (almost universalis now) and PCOS. They both appeared around the same time and it caused some confusion with diagnosis. I'm pretty convinced the PCOS has nothing to with my hair, although it can for some people.

How are you holding up? I'm well into the alopecia journey now but know how hard it was at the beginning - felt like my whole world was crashing in.

Karina.
