Coincidence? I Think Not! :)

Hello My fellow Smooth Friends :)

I enjoy reading all of your post and checking out the great pictures. I thought I would share what happened to me today. I am a full time graduate student studying to become a Nurse Anesthestist. I needed to get an MMR before I could start a new clinical site and the Health Department was just the most convient option (Glad I vote for the levy :). A mother and her daughter (age 5-6) came in an sat next to me. I could tell they were checking me out… Continue

INTERNATIONAL ALOPECIA DAY is Saturday, July 17, 2010!

In April 2009, Alopecia World member Mary Marshall proposed the idea of a National Bald Out day.

Mary's idea quickly evolved into an international celebration three months later to raise public awareness of alopecia and express our pride in our bald heads.

However, due to a "National Bald Out" trademark claim filed by another member of Alopecia World (see for details), the popular National Bald Out discussion group on Alopecia…

Signe is 11 and on her third, and most aggressive AA loss. The first two times she was young enough that it didn't really affect her, it was much easier to cover and we just rolled with it. However, "rolling with it" has become much more difficult because of advancing age and meaner kids. It doesn't help that Signe suffers anxiety and is a perfectionist.

A few weeks ago, after months of "creative hairstyling", adjusting to hats in school and finally, a wig, Signe said she was ready… Continue

Really odd question about ringing in the ears

I have been suffering with ringing in my ears for a couple years now. I started reading up on it in preparation to go to the doctor, and I found that tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is caused when the tiny hairs in your inner ears, which sent auditory signals to your brain, are damaged or killed. For some reason, when something happens to those hair cells, the brain perceives it as sound, and your ears ring.

Well, since I have alopecia pretty much everywhere, including inside my nose,… Continue

Too many hair options...same old decision

I believe i wrote on my page a few weeks ago about getting a topper. Well, I opted for a different set of extensions again. I think I decided to hold off on a topper out of pure fear. Deep down I feel that getting a topper or wig means that I will be giving up on hope that my hair will just decide to grow back healthy and strong. I don't know why I just can't take the plunge and do it. I see so many woman on this wonderful site with their pieces and they all look gorgeous; like they are having… Continue

Happy Birthday to Me!

In a way, this whole experience feels like a re-birth. I know that I'm the same person on the inside, but it's such an outward condition. That makes me feel like a different person. I've recently started to reconnect with my friends as "Bald Brandy". They have been sooo accepting and loving. I'm lucky to have them.

The only thing that I'm worried about is my career. Before I got diagnosed with Alopecia, I was an advertising account supervisor. Since all of this has happened, my… Continue
