Where acceptance is all there is
Does anyone know of any alternatives when AA begins to attack your eyebrows. I know women sometimes tattoo them on or use that permanent makeup. Being a guy, I'm not sure that i could do that. I've had AA for over a year and for the most part have come to terms with it. this has set me right back to square one. I've gone back to just not leaving the house anymore and i hate it.

When I was first diagnosed with Alopecia Areata a year ago, I had large patches of hair falling out randomly across my head. Since then, they have shrunk to smaller patches about the size of quarters not only on my head but across my face as well.

I had these grand plans to get my hair to grow and I have failed at it.I've watched as these spots have roamed around to different areas. Now \\I'm beginning to see patches on legs and on my arms.

My depression in not complete and i have left work, not wanting to venture out of my home.people hear have been so cruel.What do we have left? what do i have left anymore? I am such pit of depression that i acnt get myself out of.

I'm naturally high strung and vociferous, so that will be a…Continue
