It's days like these when I really need support. I don't really know what to do with myself. My family needs me, and they are constantly upset by my lack of contributions to the household.

I was diagnosed with alopecia areata a few weeks ago. I noticed a bald patch on my crown when getting ready for prom, which was a huge shock. I went to the dermatologist the next week, and he found 3 other patches. I got the steroid injections, and hair is starting to slowly come back in. Unfortunately, more hair is falling out near the patches, in the places that I did not receive injections (they only did about 15). The patch on my crown is growing to the size of a large palm, and I can no…
