Mother Nature

As a young girl, I was robbed of a good childhood, as a young adult I was robbed of being a young adult having to fend for myself with bills, rent,job etc,then mother nature gave me this wonderful man who is now my husband, whom I adore, 3 beautiful children.

For the past few years Mother nature took my hair, leaving me going to crisis centers, came down with PTSD, social anxiety disorder,depression and feeling all alone.

Having been through all this i've learned to accept who I am,… Continue

Pampering & disaster

So this morning I decided it was time for me to not isolate myself which is what I been doing lately, and I decided it's time for a little pampering.
Went out got my nails done,timmies, shopping and bought a brow pencil to color in some brows and OMG what a disaster i made. I hate it and I have no clue how to color them in. I got the right color ( dark blond) as I normally like my blond wigs.
God sure didn't make things easy when he took away my hairs and brows :(

Loss of brows

For a while now I had thinning brows and knew eventually they would be gone, except yesterday I woke up and had no brows, I cried alot over it, I felt like an alien with no hair, no brows, my lashes are very very thin, I was so upset over this and never told my hubby and the funny thing was he and no one else in my household noticed anything!! Considering my brows were fairly dark.

That just made it little easier for me knowing they either really didn't notice or they did and didn't want… Continue

Sleeping in Wigs

Just out of curiosity I have a question,,,
Has anyone ever slept in their wigs using a silky net?
If so does that ruin the wig??
would love anyone's input on this please as I bought a silk net and the woman at the store told me I could sleep in my wig as long as I had the net on but they will say anything to sell something to you!

Thank-you

Shaving head!!

well i've decided to buy me a very good razor and some shaving cream to get rid of the stubs today, am tired of the itching under the wig and am going to my inlaws today with a wig on , I know i'll be itching like crazy, maybe I should tell them I have head lice or something so we could leave faster,,,lmao
But I am lookng forward to getting my head smooth instead of living with stubs, it's either hair or NO HAIR right?
so I may as well say bye bye to the stubs

My bald head

I can't tell you how nice it feels to have a long day in the heat with a head full of hair ( wig) and come home to take it off!!
I sure do appreciate that while others have no way of doing that with their own hair and feel the nice breeze on a sexy bald head!!!
God Bless all of us who are bald we don't realize the pros about it very often but I just realized that pro today!! and let me tell you,,,, it feels damn nice!!

Need advice on a stubby head please!

I had mentioned before I have a stubby head except for the sides of my head , the stubs have been that way for a year now, doctors say its as good as its gonna get, and I still don't understand why that is, even though I know it is caused by my white cell count, but here's the thing, I'm always itchy leaving my head scabby whenever I wear wigs with a cap under it.

Stop procrastinating!

This is something i've learned to do over the course of my therapy!!
I now walk around bald in front of my whole family, everyday unless I go out of course, i'm not ready for that just yet, but I am very comfy around my family and no longer ashamed to be bald around my family and it feels great, especially when the fresh air hits your nice baldy head :)

much happier me today :)

So when your down over alopecia or whatever challenges you may face in your life, there is a box that I have now made for myself with different quotes on it, some music, some photos, etc,,,and you look at that as a distraction to help keep your mind distracted of wat is bothering you, and I found it amazing so far it is working for me. So when I'm down that I have no hair out comes my box.
