Coping and treatment tips

Hi, my name is BrittanyThis will be a pretty short story. I started to lose my hair October of 2018. What started as a quarter size patch of hair loss turned into about 80% hair loss today. My dermatologist diagnosed me with alopecia totalis, but said there is a possibility it could turn into alopecia univeralis.

About Me:
I just started to lose my hair last year
I now have lost about 80% of my hair. This autoimmune disease has taken my hair and has taken such a strong emotional toll on my emotions. It is hard to handle the changes that have been coming my way. I am hoping to talk to other people that have similar experiences and am interested in how you have found a way to cope. My relationship is failing at the same time as all this and my already intense anxiety has intensivied so much farther.

Alopecia totalis

Yes - I am 18 or older

Hello,

How is everything with you, my name is Adudé Fafa Akue, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(adudeakuea@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Adudé Fafa Akue.
