hi all, ive just found out i have alopecia areata, ive only got the one patch, doctors dont really explain much, and from the sites im going on im reliseing i should be grateful thats its only one hidable patch, but cant help be bit upset, ive join this site cos ive only seen 2 pic's of the same as me, plus not sure if its gonna stop at one patch
well 4 months on my patch is bigger and i have 3 more smalller patches, i wasn't brave enough to shave my head but have had it cut short to try and hide everything
I'm really pleased your willing to take part! If you want to email me your phone number - on firstname.lastname@example.org. We can schedule in a time for the interview - its more like an informal chat, but if there is anything you dont want to talk about, dont worry we will just move on.
looking forward to hearing from you soon!
love sophie x
Hey there Emma,
my mum was diagnosed with alopecia last year, and unfortunately she dealt with it quite badly. As a result when it came to doing my dissertation at uni, I thought looking into the affects hair loss has in women would be an interesting eye opening topic to research. I however need to carry out some interviews with women in the UK suffering from alopecia, so if you would be willing to take part let me know, if not no problem.
Long time yes indeed. I love your photos. My hair is falling out again all over the place. Going to go for the shave soon. It's driving me mad. Checking out some wigs this weekend. How are you? Any luck with re-growth without treatments? Hope my eyelashes and brows don't go...although, would love to have no arm hair! Talk to you soon!
helloooo......Im ok....I dont really know how i feel, Ive had short hair for about 10 years and have always spent time spiking it and things. when i got told I have aa, i just had it all cut shorter so it'd be less noticable! I have a patch at the back of my head simular to one of your pics and my hair is receding and getting thinner, It gets to me that there is no way of knowing wether its going to come back or all go, its mad! how did you cover yours when it first started or did you just have it all shaved off?? I wear hats and scarfs when i go out, which make me feel alot more comfortable. :-)
