Today I went to the local shop that supplies wigs for cancer patients. It was a big step because I have come to accept that this is now my reality. I think the hardest part is knowing it is inevitable that I will lose the rest of my hair but wanting to hold on. I feel guilty sometimes because I hate what is happening, but I know my reality could be so much worse. I try to stay positive and remember that. I believe that repeating good statements and keeping a good attitude does become what you… Continue

For those of you who have been reading my blogs and such about moving to Mexico... I now have all of my loose ends tied up. I of course have my passports. I now have my birth certificates and my S.S. cards I have been waiting for. The baby is totally up to date on his shots and my meds are all squared away for the duration of my trip. The only thing that is missing now is the money to purchase the ticket. I have some friends rallying around me to try to help me raise the money by doing various… Continue

My son Max is 2 and has been diagnosed with alopecia since he was 15 months old. He is completely bald and has lost all of his eyelashes and eyebrows. I am wondering if anyone could give me advise on how to help his eyes from becomming so irritated. Also. sunblock has become a problem too since it gets in his eyes when he swims (even the waterproof kind) I feel so badly for him and I want him to be able to enjoy himself outside this summer. He does wear a hat but doesn't want to keep it on when… Continue

Sunday was an ideal day, the weather forecast was good and so we got up early and set off for the beach in Wales. We go to a beach between Barmouth and the Clynn Peninsular so it’s about a two and a half hour drive away from Warrington. We break the journey up with a coffee stop at Bala which is always a good place to break the journey. We always use the same coffee shop as the coffee is excellent and the coffee shop itself is an interesting place to visit. It is an old chapel converted into a… Continue

I have not been on as much as I'd like while trying to get more settled into my new home. I came on here to look for a photo and noticed that my photos were missing..
I had also shared a blog about the guy I'm seeing and dealing with letting him see me without a wig and our discussions about that.. that blog is missing..
Am I the only one???

My boys are 18, 22, 24. I am 42. Yep, I was a young mom.
Last night I went out without my wig for the first time in 17 years. I am for the most part a shut in.
I have hidden myself from the world because of my shame.
I get panic attacks when I go outside.
But I have got better.
In the past I could only get out if it was about my sons. Doctors and so on.
Now that two live on there own i am scared. I am scared I will be a complete shut in when the youngest moves… Continue

Hello everyone, I thought I would post a new blog since I got a couple of emails asking me if everything was ok with me since I haven't posted or commented lately.
I am happy to say that everything is perfectly ok with me. I still have a bald head and I am still having fun with it! The thing that has kept me from posting is my Fibromyalgia. With this disease I get what is referred to as "Fibro Fog"... this means that it's hard for me to concentrate and finish a project, even as small as… Continue

So, yesterday I went to Math class knowing that I had a substitute teacher. He was really nice at first and then he started on picking on people to answer questions. He then points to me and goes "what is this young man?" I sit in a section of girls. And I didn't feel like dressing up to go to class, I never do, it's math class for Christ sake! So anyways, everyone in the class goes "huh? what?" like who is he talking to, because everyone knows I'm a girl. So I go, "Me? I'm a girl." And he… Continue

I am trying to figure out what kind of shampoo would be good to use...I still have three big spots and they are getting bigger! I have tried to start using milder shampoos but it dont seem to help at all? Also I have been taking Biotin 5000...Does anyone know if that will help? I have a little bit of hair coming in on one spot..but the others are still smooth as ever! When I start feeling frustrated and sad...I get on here and just read and it makes me feel better!
