A Search for Purpose.

It's way past my 9-5 working person's bedtime, so this may or may not be coherent. I just feel compelled to throw it out there rather than keep it rolling around between my ears.I have a job that's nowhere near anything I went to school for. I was lucky to get it right before the financial crisis, it's done a lot of great things for me, and it's stable, but it's not the kind of thing I see myself doing forever (though the fact I've stayed in it the better part of 10 years would suggest…See More

Anticlimactic.

When you have as little as I did, and after twelve years, this feels like a bit of an afterthought. I don't look quite as objectively good like this as I had hoped - and to top it off, I greatly prefer one side of my face/head to the other! - but, eh. It's mainly an attitude anyways XD…See More

(Repost from 7/22 as I accidentally deleted it before… also, update follows)



I’m pretty much the queen of being matter-of-fact about difficult things. My alopecia is no exception. Maybe I always had a lot of other stuff going on, but I viewed it as one thing among many. I’ve probably been guilty of the kind of minimizing a lot of alopecians hate, of the “It’s just hair” variety.
