Random Stuff about Me

So,



I'm currently sitting at work - on what should be a wonderfully long easter weekend - however - I am instead spending my time in an un-airconditioned office, waiting for some people to complete their work so I can do mine. Yay.

Lol - enough of the complaining - it has however given me the time to make my first blog post ever.



I heard of this site from my friend (and leader of the Queensland Alopecia Areata Support Associate) Angela, and thought - wow - I must… Continue

Something not hair-related!!

I'm a very happy person right now!!! Why, do you ask?? Because today I conducted my first training class at work!!! I have always been an unofficial trainer of sorts on every job that I have had. I have mentored new employees and taught them the most detail-oriented, efficient way to do the job that I am in and I have always done an excellent job of it. However, today was the first day that the training department actually asked me to conduct a training class on an application that we use… Continue

A quick overview of my early experience with alopecia

My name is Nicole and I have been living with alopecia since 2005. It started falling out in the Spring of ‘05 and by December of ‘05 I was completely bald and all my eyelashes and eyebrows had fallen out. I was devastated. I had grown up as “the girl with a ton of hair” my mom had always joked I had enough hair for ten people. So when my hair started falling out I felt like I was losing a huge part of myself. I remember when I developed several bald spots and had lost about 70% of my hair…

How/When My Alopecia started (a long one...)

Hello My Shining Ones :-)



I also just posted a video that shares some of this same *long* story....if you'd rather watch than read :-)



In my first blog I said I would share "how/when" my Alopecia started as the story has unraveled itself to me slowly over the years! When I was 7 or 8 years old I realized I was somehow meant to "travel the world, meet my brothers and sisters and spread the message of love." Yes, perhaps an odd thought for a child, but it was something that… Continue

Just some thoughts

So as I put in my about me I am 23 years old, I got or developed or whatever you want to call it , AU when I was 15.. within a few months it was all gone, thinning evenly all over my head and soon to follow my eyelashes, eybrows and everything quit growing. Anyway the day I was actually diagnosed with Alopecia I bawled, cried and cried forever, I loved my hair, I was a 15 year old girl so of course I did! Anyway after that first day I got better and better and accepted it more and more,… Continue

Enough all ready...!!!

It's been three days and she isn't liking her wig much anymore. It is really bothering her that the hair is always in her face. She wants the hair but it's just too much for her. She can't get past that. I don't know what to do. I want to protect her, and I love her with out it, but she is uncomfortable in her own skin, and behind this mess of hair. She was crying to me today when she put it on after I washed it, again. She misses being able to put hair ties in her hair, and wearing a pony… Continue

Della's Wig.

To my surprise she loves it, and I miss her. I was so used to seeing her face. I posted her new pictures. I think it is too thick. HAHA first I complain about her not having enough hair and now it's too much. I am a picky, picky person.

I'll let my head speak for itself

I had an interesting thing happen to me last night. I was out with my partner, Phil, and an old friend of mine, and we started talking about relationships. My partner and I started the conversation by talking about how we argue often and can both be difficult people at times - he has his reasons, I have mine. Then my friend joined in and started telling Phil that there's no way that I can be that difficult, because a) I come from a really supportive family, and b) I've never had to deal with… Continue

The car ride from hell!!!

Ok, so I was in a car wreck last week and tore up the front end of my brand new PT Cruiser and I found out in the process when I got arrested that my drivers license was suspended (plus I was riding dirty with expired tags -- not my fault; the bank in Georgia wouldn't send me my title to TN so I could get my tags here.) Now I've been forced to take a day off to ride to Atlanta with my sister (who is a police officer, go figure :) ) to get my tags and get my license reinstated. She is only… Continue

So Refreshing!

Hello new friends! This morning I woke up and felt very thankful for all the love and support I get from family and friends!!!



This site is so positive and it really makes me feel like I'm part of a community that I can really identify with. :-D



I especially like the fact that we aren't shy about our hair loss and in many cases enriches our lives. I've only ever gone bald around my house and private backyard, and can't think if there's even one picture of my with… Continue

wow

I haven't so many beautiful bald people like this ever!!!! This is a big deal to me because people, especially in my own family would have me believe that I should be ashamed of what has happened to me, or my appearance for that matter. I would never forget when a relative said to me, "how can you be bald and be a stylist? I wouldn't let you touch my head!". but I didn't let that jerk the benefit of beliving anything he had to say and I'm glad I wasn't wrong! Just seeing you all makes me feel… Continue

March Boy 2008

My Story

So I figured I'd write a quick blog detailing my history with Alopecia since I didn't feel like writing all that in the "about me" section.

Alopecia runs in my family. My younger sister developed AA when she was 4, had a couple bald spots and then it all grew back. She's now 23 and hasn't lost any hair since. I first lost my hair at age 12 right before I began 7th grade and in a matter of 6 months went from AA to AU. I was completely bald till somewhere towards the end of 9th grade. I was… Continue

More about me!!!

I'm a walking contradiction of sorts. When I was growing up, I was very comfortable with my alopecia, and got to the point that I would voluntarily shave my hair because I liked the weightlessness and comfort of not having to do my hair every day. However, I have noticed that especially in the last 3 years that I range more from occasional bouts of self-pity to just being all out enraged about the fact that I am 30 years old and I am still dealing with alopecia. Every time I start a new job, or… Continue
