Angry Eyes

My favorite part of the movie "Toy Story" is when Mrs. Potato Head packs Mr. Potato Head's angry eyes "just in case".

Later on, Mr. Potato Head gets mad and yells 'Prepare to meet my ANGRY EYES'. He actually grabs a pair of shoes and sticks them in his eye holes...and runs into a wall. Yesterday, as I was drawing in part of my eyebrows, that scene came to mind. I started laughing because I thought about drawing in 'angry eyes' one day. Not only can I change my hair to match my mood, I can… Continue

Because you asked....

The wig that I am wearing is from Tony of Beverly. The wig is called 'Cali'. I am wearing the color "Sunset Red". There are LOTS of color choices! I ordered it from Wilshire Wigs (http://www.wilshirewigs.com/CALI-by-Tony-of-Beverly-pr-4042.html) When I ordered it, it was $90, but I just checked again and it is $120 now. It is a synthetic wig, but other than that, I don't really know much about wigs. It only comes in 'average' size and I need a petite size. But, rolling the bottom under once… Continue

My first wig

This has been my look lately...(the end half inches of my eyebrows are drawn in)



As these pictures show...its time for a wig.



As my last post shows, I had way too much fun wig shopping. I don't know anything about wigs. I have no idea what lace front or any of the other terms that I keep seeing mean. But, this one was pretty, and it looks like how my hair… Continue

finding my alter egos

as the pictures on my last post show...it is impossible to hide my spots. I have been wearing scarves and hats for the past two weeks. actually one hat, because up until yesterday, i only had one. it was a little difficult to plan everything i wore around one hat, especially when i need to do laundry :D. Anyway, I like the I can wear hats and scarves, but it just isn't practical for every single day at my job. So, I spent yesterday wig shopping. I found one that is exactly like my hair was, or… Continue

Dermatologist Appointment

First - Thank you for responding to me and sending me encouragement. It really did encourage me to know that I'm not the only one going through this. I don't really feel like I can vocalize everything that I'm feeling yet, and it helps to know that other people have been there. Thank you!!



Its been a little over a week since I noticed the first two patches...and holy cow this thing is moving fast. The three patches that I had in the back have all merged into one giant patch. There's… Continue

I am 24 years old and was just diagnosed with AA. I knew someone in high school that had AA totalis but other than that, didn't really know much about it AA. I went to the doctor because I noticed a bald patch on my head in a picture. I don't usually see the back-under side of my head so I didn't notice before. In the past few weeks, I've been losing alot of hair. I wake up to hair all over my pillow. I lose GOBS of hair in the shower. I lose hair when I'm just sitting at my desk working. You… Continue
