i'm 27 and have had alopecia for a little over a year now, but it has just recently gotten very bad and i have lost all my hair, eyelashes and most of my eyebrows. i am the mom of one very handsome little man who is my world. we live in charleston, with our two dogs and a hampster. i am a chef and let me tell ya what working in a kitchen with a wig on sucks!!! i was told about this site by a girl i've talked to on myspace and it seems really cool, so i hope i get to talk to a lot of people and hopefully it will make me feel better about myself.
Hi Carmen, How are you? You know I use to think and wonder what people would think of me with out hair. But, i have came to the relazation of Why should I worry about other people? Im not afraid of going out in plublic, I care less who see's my head. But if your hubby loves you, it will be only matter of time when you can break that barrier to show him. Im going to culinary school this fall. I dont know how you can manage working in a wig. wow you must be tough. I would have ripped it off and be done with it reguardless who see it. Im all about my comfort, I choose not to wear hair I dont like being hot and sweaty YUCK!!!! any way if you want to talk im around. take care of you kat
Hi there - nice to meet you! I am in Australia - I live without a wig - I am too lazy/cant be bothered with the heat - people are SO nice to me - my husband actually kind of prefers me without my hair and a wig as it has made me unique!!! my decision not to wear a wig was not one I made over night but rather over a year or so.... I now hardly even think about Alopecia - and at times wonder why people are looking at me.... then I remember - email me any time!!
