Cushings syndrome and Alopecia Areata changing to Universalis?

It will be a year now since i have shaved my head. Well the few patches of hair that still stood strong. And i can say this year has been a crazy train. I was getting steroid injections every 4 weeks last year up until the point i shaved my head. Soon after, i noticed a hump on my upper back. I also gained some weight. Came to find out i developed Cushings Syndrome from the steroids. Long story short i am still battling weight loss and still have the buffalo hump......

Other than that…

Alopecia areata regrowth

I have had Alopecia Areata ever since i can remember. I think my mom first noticed bald patched when i was 2 years old. Well they never became big enough for me to really notice until 2011. In 2011, i lost about 50% of my hair and have been getting steriod shots in my head every 4 weeks. Its been a roller coaster really...It would regrow and everything would be good then it would get way worse again. Oct, 2016 i lost about 60% to 70% of my head, i shaved it. By the way,....BEST decision ever…
